Tortoise Help

25 July 2012 - 06:50 AM

I am thinking of getting a tortoise, would be a wonderful addition to our family but unsure how to go about it.
There is a lady living in my area selling her 5 year old Hermann tortoise but is it safer to get one from a breeder at a young age where i am sure of where it has come from. She bought it a few months back from a gentleman who is now ill but i have no idea of her history, who the guy was and where he got her from.
She may be unwell etc. I would love to rescue her but so unsure what to do.

I believe she is living in a large aquarium and worried after 5 years that a chance of living conditions to something better would not agree with her. Maybe i am being naive and stupid on this subject but would love more guidance.

Indoor Enclosure Construction

25 July 2012 - 06:44 AM


I am looking to purchase a tortoise and thinking of the best indoor home it could have. We have lots of wooden wine crates (that contained 12 bottles) and are lovely and deep and spacious. Would this be a good enclosure to use?

Also what would need to be inside the enclosure to make the tortoise as happy as possible.

Thank you
