Great Indoor Enclosure Seen Youtube

23 March 2018 - 10:27 PM

Here is an idea of indoor enclosure for babies and young tortoises, and it is extentable when needed. Looks rather cheap in terms of cost too

Picture Of The Indoor Enclosure

Here are some pictures of the indoor enclosure of the little babies. This year I actually planted the grasses in the substrate, rather than in pots. Hopefully the plants will do well. That will also offer the babies to have the option to dig in next to the plants.


They will stay indoors for a couple of months. Then they are moving outdoors 24/7 until end of September.




Slide Show - Emerging From Hibernation

17 March 2018 - 01:25 PM


Here is a slide show of my two 30 months old Hermann babies emerging this morning from hibernation after 9 weeks in the fridge.

All went well. They were soaked, fed with fresh weeds and now they are napping and basking.



Disposal Of Mercury Vapour Bulbs

Hi there


Where do you dispose your old mercury vapour bulbs? For example Mega Ray bulbs?

The instructions in the box are very broad, not specific.


Thank you



Influenza Virus

05 March 2018 - 12:56 PM


I have the flu symptoms and my two Hermann babies will come out of hibernation very soon. I am unsure if they are safe from this virus as i might be still contagious and they are potentially depleted to some degrees of their immune functions.

I understand that the viruses carried by humans are not transmissible to tortoises. Please let me know if they will be safe.

Of course I am treating myself as much as i can.


Thank you
