the biggest tortoise hes the dominant tortoise and the smaller one well hes just like to chill and nope my sister is not having one yet only if they start fighting she can have 1 but i like them both and they seem happy than being in a vivarium table is much better

I would say good advice from everyone here Charlie, and don't worry about your spelling, my spelling I'd rubbish because I'm dyslexic, and sometimes I read things wrong too!

they look a little sheepish Charlie! Horsfields are lovely breed of tortoise and quite gregarious actually. CB

They seem very contented in their bath.

Glad to hear they are settling down. Fingers crossed.

climbing the walls is normal for Horsfields so don't worry and as Gordon says they love lots of interest half buried pots to climb over and dig under too. but they may still climb the walls...Im sure we all do at some point ! CB
