Artificial Plants?

20 January 2016 - 06:24 PM

Hi! :). I'm in a process of decorating my tortoise enclousure and plan to buy some plants. He does have a spider plant and will get some aloe. But it always takes a lot of time with just purchased plants as I wait a couple of months before I put them in. I was wondering how do you feel about artificial ones for an adult Hermanni? :)

Desperate New Owner- Herman Won't Eat Weeds!

20 October 2015 - 08:44 AM

Hi, I hope you can help me. I've got a Dalmatian Hermann tortoise, male who is aprox. 12 years old. My neighbours had him in their garden and decided they don't want him so we adopted him in July. He's been living in our spacy garden ans now is in a terarium in my room. I bought him a UVB lamp 10.0 and temperature is around 26 C.I'm planning to get him a heat lamp, too. The PROBLEM is...he won't eat weeds on daily basis that I ofer him like dandelions, hibiscus, grass etc. Last time he ate them was Saturday. But when/of if ofer him tomato he always eats some. What to do? I love him very much and he seems in good shape, walking around and climbing. P.S. His shell is 14 cm long and 645 g.
