hi I’m Sarah I am 38 living in England in Mildenhall right by the air base I have just purchased my first ever tortoise after wanting one since I was very little. I have a leopard tortoise he is 6months and called Franklin. I totally love him already but find myself panicking at everything! I’m so scared I’m gonna do something wrong he is so perfect and doing really well. I have been enjoying looking at this website and all the useful info there’s sooooo much to learn it has taken me nearly a year to get everything set up and get Franklin but I’ve wanted to do everything right and not rush as they are not like a dog or cat you just feed an love! My auntie used to have a Herman tort that she rescued from a restaurant many years ago which was going to be eaten! An he just lived in a cardboard box in her conservatory with free reign to the garden! Boy was I in for a shock when I seriously started getting set up! He has far more than a cardboard box an newspaper. Look forward to chatting to other tortoise owners and reading bout your adventures. this is Franklin he is very active and inquisitive.
