Corner Sleeping/basking

19 February 2015 - 06:45 PM

Hey (promise this is the last post today)
Just curious as to whether any other tortoises find a corner and either sleep or bask in it? Sheldon has been basking in the same spot for a few hours but he's rights up to the wooden sides. I don't know if it's cause he's more comfortable here...but he's usually asleep by now.. His light comes off in a hour and half, shall I leave it on longer?
Thank you.m

How Often Do You Feed Baby Tortoises?

Just curious as to how often ya'll feed your tortoises?
and whats their favourite munchies? (my little one, seems to be ignoring the greens)

- When i first purchased him four days ago, i noticed that the pet shop was feeding him, iceberg lettuce and mixes of other lettuce as well as small cubed tomatoes - i want to ween him out of the poor diet.

My name is Sheldon, I am a 5 Month old Hermann Tortoise and i've recently been moved into my new home. I am settling in well and starting to get to know my owner, Holly. She loves to talk to me and i love the company, for a little 'fella' like myself, I'm not as shy as i make out, infact I'm rather picky; i like to keep holly on her feet, and I'm not a bad climber too. 

Likes & Dislikes:
I love climbing, tomatoes and because I'm a baby I'm often found sleeping in my little house or on-top of my twig bridge.
I dislike, baths - because I'm so young i have to be bathed daily and its not something I'm totally enarmoured about, i look forward to when i grow up and it becomes less often..

On that note... Bath time.  :mellow:  :)
