I will be posting more than usual to get ready for my new baby to come in June.
What is a good humidity/ temp for a well started hatchling? He is going to ba Western Hermann Tortoise.
I am trying to get the most accurate temps for my baby. Anyone experienced in Hermann’s please...
I am looking forward to my male hatchling on the way. If you are looking for a hermann’s Chris Leone is the person to order from. He was great throughout the entire process and goes beyond with care instructions and all you need to know. You can find him on youtube as well. He has...

I am curious as to what is the best way to adapt two tortoises into your home. I am not so much worried about space, that in which I have but electric...
