Just got my baby Hermann's today! He has already won my heart :)

And yes, he's eating off a plate - even though I ordered everything 2 weeks ahead of time, his terracotta dishes got lost in the mail! He'll be getting his tomorrow.

His name is Tommen, but if it turns out female, she will be named Myrcella. My Russian is already named Tywin, so I am really happy with this choice :p

Congrats! And welcome Tommen! It’s so much fun to watch them grow and have their big personalities shine through! They are like little toddlers, always wanting to be up in your business lol! Here are my Eastern Hermann’s Ivy and Murphey to welcome this sweet angle to the TFO! And a very warm welcome to you as well!

Where did you get him/her?
From a local breeder! I was very skeptical at first, since I was initially looking for someone recommended through TFO, but when I contacted her, she had a great setup for them! Checked all the boxes I was looking for in a breeder. And so far, Tommen seems active, happy, and healthy.

Thanks! Ivy and Murphey are great looking tortoises! Tommen is an Eastern Hermann's as well. I am excited to watch him grow, and in the meantime, I am taking as many pictures as I can.

Tommen is getting some outdoor time today! He’s a very extroverted little guy - he’s been spending a lot of time eating and basking. And he seems to love mustard greens!
