The Marginated are a great starter tortoise, they are a Mediterranean tortoise.
Hatched June 2018, these Hermann hatchlings are UK captive bred, microchipped and come with a their species specific license (meaning you will never need to apply for a new one).
Marginated are a friendly breed of tortoise, that have beautifully marked shells. During the summer months they would very much enjoy being outside, basking in the natural sunlight.
As with all tortoises temperature is key to your tortoise health, along with a good natural diet.
Please be aware that it is essential for a tortoise to have access to UV light all year round for the growth of their shell and bones. They especially need it during the winter months when they are no longer able to go outside and in the first 12 months when they will not hibernate.
Please ensure you have your setup ready for your tortoise before
purchasing your tortoise. We will always ask for photo evidence of your
tortoise table and combination lighting before we book your delivery. If
you are unsure of what you need, give us a call or drop us an email
