    What weight for hibernation?

    Hi Guys, My rescued Horsefield is - according to experts on this forum - 5-6 years old and has possibly never had a hibernation. Unfortunately he wasn’t very well when I acquired him, he had parasites, was malnourished and has some pyramiding. Right now he is 9.5cm long (from the “V” in his...

    Should I blind my outdoor enclosure?

    My little Horsefield, Khan, just capsized himself in his new, outdoor enclosure! At first I couldn’t see how, but then I found him six inches up the wire mesh sides, and all became clear. Should I put something around the enclosure so he can’t see out? Any other advice gladly accepted! Thanks, x

    My tortoise only does little poos, but I was thinking it would make good fertiliser... just not much of it!

    Help! I bought my tortoise a new tortoise table and he's not happy!

    Well, The wardrobe is on its back, obviously :)I’m not an expert - literally rescued Khan three weeks ago! But I’ve been following the the experts on here. They are saying the minimum size is 8X4.” I mixed organic topsoil (eBay, but not particularly cheap) with the coir - he REALLY liked that...

    Help! I bought my tortoise a new tortoise table and he's not happy!

    I was in a similar position to yourselves a few weeks ago - I got an old wardrobe from Facebook for £10, which seems to be working fine. I checked it was made of actual wood, not MDF or anything like that :) I got 70l of reptile quality orchid bark for £25 and 70l (1 large block) of coconut...

    Sulcata expert question.....

    Hi, sorry, I know this thread is old (I only found it because I’ve been reading everything I can find about Knobby - who is awesome, BTW). So it seems tortoises are not distressed by cats? My cat likes to hop into my little rescue’s table occasionally, and steal his water, or go to sleep with...

    I know, I was being silly. It’s just that my roses are absolutely ruined this year - we had a stupendously hot June, so everything is burnt, and storms since then, so everything’s drowned, too! Tortoise weeds are doing splendidly, though 😹

    Things you wish you knew before getting a tortoise

    Good idea! I wish I’d known that the minimum enclosure size was 8X3.

    I cannot believe that instead of growing roses this year, I am now growing weeds for my tortoise 🙄
