Hello Chris. I have a baby greek and am having trouble with humidity. I read your care guide and I have a question. I have a plastic tote for the enclosure. I plan to drill holes and use the lid at night once lights are out to hold humidity and moisture as per your guide. Question, during the day when lights are back on, I leave the top open and that's ok? I'd love your advice.
Hi Chris, it's Patti from the UK.
My 8 Hermann eggs are now 4 weeks into incubation.
Still no obvious veins sadly.
The eggs are continuing to chalk however. The first three are almost completely chalked except for the bottom.
On candling they look orange.
I've taken recent photos but can't figure out how to attach them to this post.
Is it time to switch off the incubator?
Hi Chris, My Hermann tortoise is 10 months old now and weighs 120g. His length is 8cm. Is this a healthy weight? I have been searching the web for answers but cant seem to find them. Thank you in advance. Carol
Found a hermanns tortoise that needs re-homing desperately. He/she is approx 6 years old but has a soft shell, he has not been looked after very well. I would like to take him on but I am hoping you could advice me on the best way to care for him please
Hi. Greetings from dubai. I found a tortoise on the road and took it home. Absolutely no idea what type. Pls help me with this. I gave it some lettuce and greens. And it ate it all. Should i give it more? Can tortoises be overfed? And i cant put it outside yet because i have nothing to keep it safe from cats. Im putting it in a narrow box with newspaper. Pls contact me as soon as possible thank you
Hey. On the back of your post to me yesterday how were you able to tell my tortoise was a Turkish as opposed to a Tunisian? I only ask because one of my friends is in the same dilemma. They aren't a member of this forum but asked if I could call out the key differences
