Bless you, Daryn. I've only met you once but I could tell you are a pickled onion man. I'm a pickled onion girl too. Something to do with my family being from Lancashire!

Oh, I forgot to say, the injections are easy, don't worry about them. I have to inject myself with drugs for my arthritis, once a week. It's easier than popping twelve pills from a packet.

I arranged to meet Daryn on York railway station. It was a bit like Brief Encounter! We had a nice cup of tea and I handed over Cherry. Always lovely to meet new tortoise people.

His temps are far too high. He doesn't need any extra heat at night, and 25 C is fine during the day. He's not coming out because he's too hot.

Hi,

I lurk on here and have read this thread today, and think you have done a great job of rehoming these tortoises.
I just thought I would tell you what someone advised me a few years ago.
