Indoor Tortoise

07 April 2013 - 09:40 AM



My wife and I are currently looking at getting our first tortoise. We have previously looked at a juvenile Hermann, however, looking in more detail suggests that for the majority of the year they prefer an outside environment as opposed to an indoor one.


Are there any turtles which prefer/or are more comofrtable with an indoor environment all year round? Would a non-hibernating tortoise (such as a Leopard or a Redfoot) be more accomodating to staying indoors?


Also, are there any breeds which are recommended for 'beginners' at all?


Many thanks
