Thanks for the welcomes


realy glad to find this forum :)


Its so sad that pet shops sell tortoises in such states , it realy upset me seeing willow in the shop in that little tank

Id only called in for some wild bird seed and ended up rushing About buying enclosures and lights ect and went back

and got willow ... They tried sooo hard to sell me a vivarium as well, they were realy pushy until I told them id been researching

online about tortoises and I believed that vivs weren't any good for them and especially the one he was being kept in there .

Unfortunatly id done more research on the housing and diet than the species or I may have realised they were wrong

saying he was a horsfield...........

I cant imagine not having him now , hes so funny.

Thanks so much stella


That's a great idea , I have a little girl next door who would do that ....

I was worried about him being cold as well ! he has lots of edible weeds which I purposely grew in his enclosure

so hes got plenty to graze on.


I feel much better now about leaving him.. (I think we worry too much sometimes )

Usually when I go away for a week or so I take him to my parents (3 hour drive away)

but couldn't do this just for a night.


many thanks
