Hi again, this is Junior's mum.

Thank you Freddy. :-) They still seem to be doing pretty well ! We keep the temperatures steady and the lights too. Winter is here but our viv is in fact open topped - air can circulate easily throughout the enclosure.

Thank you Wizzasmum for your concerns too. Switzerland may well be a little colder over the winter months (most people hibernate their tortoises inside, in a hay box in their (heat controlled) garage) - however, our summers are much much warmer and drier than Britain ;-)

It may be a small country, but, believe me, it has plenty of outdoor spaces too! ;-) In fact, I can highly recommend the climate and good old outdoor spaces for either human or tortoise!

Have a great week,

Have a great weekend!

I am Junior's mum and like Junior, we are very interested in making sure we do the right thing for our two baby tortoises. I would like to thank you all for your advice and recommendations - it is very much appreciated, and the reason why we wanted to join this forum.

We live in Switzerland, and it is cold here now. Snow is forecast this weekend. Our tortoises are very small, only four months old, but they seem to be doing well. We are following the tips we get here and from other friends of ours who also have Hermanns. We bought them from a nurse here (in her 50s), visited her home, and can say her tortoises looked wonderful (big and small). It took us several months to find someone like her and we would never want to buy any pet from a pet store. Junior cares so much about them, and about all animals.

We will strive to do or very best and will take any advice you have to give. :-) We thank you once again for your posts and advice

Have a great weekend!

:-)
