Thanks! Well, years ago I visited her website.
Horsfieldiis are kept relatively dry compared to mediterranian tortoises. Perhaps this caused some confusion.

Horsfields have the same humidity requirements as the Med species. Humidity is surprisingly high in the tunnels that they live in, even though the conditions surrounding the area are pretty dry. My horsfields lived outdoors in U.K. and hibernated naturally too. They did have covered areas but preferred the outdoors.

Wow, that’s an interesting story Graham. I’m betting though, that although he was underweight, the natural life contributed to his smooth shell. He looks very much like my Sam (usually known as Sam the B) or naughty Sam by the children. My torts are spoiled too, but only in a torty way rather than the fate of so many. He’s actually a good weight for an adult male, many are around the 1kg mark. Well done Harry and of course Graham.

Let me see if I still have them. I remember years ago extolling the virtues of humid hides, deep substrate etc etc and then saw a post on a Tortoise Trust Forum saying this was dangerous information. How I laugh when I see they are now giving out the same advice. I bet they don’t credit myself or Editha with the knowledge though. Haha

He’s in his prime Graham. Did you have him as a hatchling? Lucky to know his actual age
