Ok thank you for the reassurance! These are my first tortoises and because there aren't really any ways they can tell you they are happy, I fixate on their shells a little and then end up panicking! My girls are quite good at keeping their enclosure moist as they have water squirter fights and the tortoises love it as they run out and shower in any water that comes their way :)

Ah ok that's interesting. Thank you! Mine obviously just always want a nice warm bath and lots of food 😂 I can understand that!!

I didn't hibernate them the first or second year I had them but I've done it the 3 years. I read on here that it's important not to wait until they are older as some websites recommend:)

Thank you! These are my first tortoises and there is so much to worry about to make sure you get it perfect for them! Hibernation being the biggest minefield lol! So it's good to know I seem to be on the right track :)

Thank you for your reply. Here they are from the sides. Their enclosure for the summer is outside but I have a very secure garden and have only grown tortoise friendly plants. So when I'm out there to keep a watch on them, I take them out and give them full run of it :)
