Default Hi!



Hi All,

I just wanted to introduce myself. I adopted a hermanns tort on 1st Jan.
Little Irwin is approx 1.5 /2 years old and has some serious MBD.

We've been to the reptile vets a few times and they seem content that Irwin seems to really be doing great in her new home on Liquid Calcium and with access to new UVB light.

Its going to be a long road to recovery and I've been lurking a lot on here for advice a lot, its been really helpful

This is all new to me and there seems to be so much info to take in! But i'm absolutely besotted with my little tort and so impressed with how well shes done even in the 1 month i've had her.

So yeah, Hi! from me and Irwin.

(P.S im not too sure how picture posting works but I post a lot of her on my Instagram: Rambosaysso feel free to add me!

Hello and welcome, and well done for taking her in, sounds like she's being very well looked after. Please feel free to ask as many questions as you need.
You can't post a picture until you have done five posts, then you need to upload your pics to a host site first, most people on her use photobucket, once you have your pics on there, you can then copy and paste on to SW.

Welcome to you and Irwin. Good name!
Hope you continue to find the forum useful and as Suze says, ask any questions and there's usually someone about to answer them.

Big warm welcome to you and Irwin from me too.

I don't know much about MBD but some torts can live a good life even after a dreadful start.

Photo posting on here is easy via photobucket. Basically you copy and paste the IMG link from photobucket onto your post and the photo magically appears.

I think we all get very attached to our tortoises so I'm not surprised you have bonded with Irwin!
