Topics I've Started


31 July 2015 - 01:08 PM

Since our Hermanns tortoises were wormed this year the older one has become quiet and appears a bit dehydrated...she eats but not as much as before she was wormed and just wants to bask or sleep.
They both get bathed three times a week and poo normally but the larger female doesn't pass much urates whereas she did before the worming.
Her mouth is clean and pink, no discharge from her nose and no breathing problems..could the Panacur wormer have dehydrated her and would it be ok to give her some Reptoboost to rehydrate her.
Having never used Reptoboost before what's the best way to administer it..ie.bathing her in it or syringe some in her mouth?
How often and how long should I give it.
All help appreciated

Can someone please tell me if there is a safe distance a uvb tube light should be above a tortoise?

Can it be too close?


Tortoise Table Question

20 June 2015 - 03:45 PM

Can anyone with a wooden tortoise table please tell me how they stop the wood being soaked in tortoise pee/poo.
Do you treat the wood with a sealant of some kind or do you have another way of treating the wood.
If you have used a sealant, which one, as I've seen many sealants on the market but I'm not sure which is tortoise friendly.
All advice greatly appreciated.

Any links to the stuff I need would be a great help.

Male Hermann Needing Home

11 June 2015 - 07:15 AM



They are looking for a new home for their tortoise...Male Hermann which they have had about 15 years...they are not sure of his age as he was not theirs originally...they rehomed him from a family that had little time for him.
He has a bit of pyramiding due to his bad start in life and they were not given any papers.
He is fit and eats well...is very active and can be of a live wire and likes to chase things.
Would love him to go to a new home that can offer him a great life with someone that knows about Tortoises.
They are based in the North London area.
Tortoise doesn't come with any housing.
Please PM me for any more info if needed.
