Eeek my first post! Meet my tortoise crew! Harriet, Horace, Hilda, Hector & Horatio!
these are actually my Dads torts but i looked after them when he went away and theyve been allowed to stay for an extended holiday!
Harriet & Horace are 10 years old. Hilda, Hector & Horatio are 8.
Horatio is the smallest and my favourite. He only has 1 eye so he sometimes struggles to eat so i guess thats why hes abit smaller.

Nice to meet you all ☺

Hi welcome to the forum. :)

Your tortoises are lovely, lovely names. :)

Is there a reason there on news paper, is this in there enclosure, also I hope you don't mind me saying but no fruit should really be fed and also that looks like spinach which also isn't very good to feed http://www.thetortoi...=main&catID=608, they really need a weed, plant and flower diet, have a look at this you might find it helpful  http://www.tortsmad.com/diet.htm. :)

Welcome to the fourm :)
Nice little group your dad has there!
Agree with Karen about the news paper and feeding fruit,its doing them more harm than good in the long run
