Hi Karen, yes - it was the lack of certificate that made me worry and start to question the breed so yes, I made sure I got a cert this time.

The good news is that my new Hermann has settled really nicely so I'm hoping to put this behind me any enjoy him going forward.

Unfortunately, I bought from a pet shop - hence the reason I mistakenly ended up with a Horsfield rather than the Hermann's I really wanted in the first place - I don't think hygiene was their first priority! Not good as I'd spent £400 on the set up so thought they could have at least got the tortoise breed right!

Thanks Sue, that's a weight off my mind!

No, definitely wanted a Hermann's - luckily the seller was happy to take back the Horsfield and let us have a Hermann's so we now have Marcel 2 at home!

Thanks Carol, although I've just found out he's a Horsfield tortoise - just discovered when I chased up the pet shop for a certificate!!!
