Hello

Any good book recommendation on Hermann Tortoises for keepers (husbandry at different age stages, behavior, hibernation, diet, housing etc…)?

Thank you

Sabina

Hi there, I bought Naturalistic keeping and breeding of Hermann's Tortoises by Wolfgang Wegehaupt after it was recommended to me. Its pretty good reading and there's loads of info in there. I bought mine from Amazon but it was the european site as it was actually cheaper & was free delivery .

 

Hope that helps
