Hey guys. I am picking up my new Hermann tortoise on 6th November. Just wondering what's best to feed him as weeds are very sparse around where I live at the moment! Any help would be great. Thankyou!

Hi welcome to the forum. :)

Through winter you can still find some weeds about, some times you just have to look more, you can add these to some florette crispy salad for short term use until there's more weeds about, have a look on here you might find it helpful, it tells you what's good to feed and what's not  http://www.thetortoi...e/plants_19.asp :)

Has your breeder not given you a care plan and list of good food etc? I always do this with my little ones before they collect the baby. There are always enough weeds for one small tortoise if you just look in the right places. It becomes second nature eventually ;)
