These are our 2018 hatchlings, they are currently the size of a 50p
With similar markings to the Hermann, this is a very popular species. You may recognise it as one you or your grandparents had as a child.
This tortoise needs to be kept in a tortoise table with heat and UV (see lighting category for combination bulbs)
As with all of our species, this tortoise can go outdoors during T-shirt weather, but needs to be kept indoors the rest of the year
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 first.
This species needs to hibernate. Do Not hibernate during the first winter of ownership.
We are proud to offer a 2 month guarantee on all or our tortoises. (More information can be found in our Terms and Conditions)
