That's great to hear. Thanks for the picture.. I will start putting together my setup so it's exactly what a tortoise needs. Good to know you like to deliver your babies, gives you a chance to make sure the setup is correct. I don't think I'd be happy to have a tortoise delivered via courier, like I'd never buy from a pet shop either. I'm sure once I start sorting my setup I'll have plenty more questions.

Thanks for all your advice.. I've decided that I'm definitely going to be getting one. During my research I noticed you are a breeder of Hermann tortoises in the Shropshire area. Would it be better to wait till the spring now to purchase one? I haven't got a setup sorted yet and don't want to rush putting one together.

Thank you for your response. It's good to know that other people with auto immune conditions keep tortoises.. I'd read in a couple of pages during my research that people with weakened immunity should avoid all reptiles due to the increased risks of associated with that possible infections but like you say as long as your careful with hand hygiene etc.
