Hi everyone,


My name is Kathryn and I am looking into purchasing a Tortoise.  The only problem is that I have no idea what breed to go for and could really do with advice on this, how to look after them and where I can home them.  Can they be kept indoors?



Please help

Kind regards

Hi Kathryn

No tortoise is suitable for indoor housing on a permanent basis and should have access to outdoors wehrever possible. At either end of the season, it's OK to keep them in when temps are low, but not on a permanent basis.

My own caresheets are here but there is info here on buying a tortoise too, on the left hand drop down menu ;)

Hope this helps
