Outdoor Enclosure For My Torts.

29 April 2014 - 04:44 PM

I know there's a fair amount of grass growing here but it holds an assortment of weeds which they happily graze on. Each year several areas of grass is dug up to promote other types of weeds and flowers that I plant to grow in.

Hi all, my name is Paul, I'm 52 years old, married with 2 children and live in Ipswich. I have 3 tortoises, 1 male and 2 females. The male is 11 years old the eldest female is 10 and the youngest female is 6. They are all Hermann tortoises and I started my love affair with these fascinating creatures when I bought my male (Herman), 10 years ago when he was just a year old. They have an outdoor enclosure measuring 50ft x 11ft tailored to their needs, and an indoor enclosure for late autumn (wind down) and early spring (too cold) use. This year my eldest female (Molly) laid her first clutch of 4 eggs and after a hastily purchased incubator 2 of them hatched 8 weeks later. The 2 babies are now 5 weeks old and are doing very well. They are in a vivarium at the moment and in our lounge,  where they will be under constant observation over the winter period. As you can imagine, I am chuffed to bits with these two newcomers, I never thought I'd be in a position to rear babies! 

I'm a keen biker and my wife and I love doing long distant walking holidays.
