In Topic: Now To Introduce My Tortoise...

The forum was a fantastic resource when I was trying to work out what was needed before I bought my tortoise. So many fall for the mistake of buying a vivarium, which I could well have done if I hadn't learnt better from forums like this, and tortoise websites. It was also a great resource for finding out what to feed.

Hi Mobile, can I ask what are you using as a base in your tort house?

 

Hi,

 

The indoor enclosure is a mixture of coir and playsand. The outside enclosure is topsoil. I find topsoil to be a little messy indoors, whereas coir is easy to clean-up.

He was a genuinely nice bloke and I don't think he intentionally intended any harm to come to the tortoises. He had a young family and I think he was treating them as pets.

They were both taken from the same place. The tortoises were in a walled garden in a restaurant. Apparently they roam free near the guys accommodation and he occasionally takes a few into work. There was another resatuatant up the road that had larger tortoises and also a few babies. That one had a tortoise house in the back garden that they would take people through to if they shown interest in the baby one in the front walled garden.
