Default Hello

Hi, I've owned a Hermann Tortoise for about 6 years now after taking her in from a family member who didn't want her. She is about 8 years old now. I'm quite good at identifying weeds for her now, but always have questions.

She has lived in an outdoor house for three years now, this year I've built a new one after finding problems with my first attempt. She has just woken up without problems from her third hibernation.

I've not used an Internet forum for years, used to use all the time. I have posted a picture in another tread but it hasn't shown up. Just signed up for photobucket as that's what I used to use, I'll get some pics up soon.

Hello K.J and a big welcome to the forum!

Glad your tort has woken up well.

I change my torts' housing quite often, hopefully learning along the way. I realised that not all my ideas work out well so I try to observe what the torts make of it and work out how I can improve. I have plans for spring...

Great photos. Looks like you have given her a lovely home. What is she called.
