Hello. I have had a tortoise for about a year, being persuaded to have him. We have got lights, water bowl, correct soil and bedding but I am not sure of his sex, age, species and have become bogged down with all the facts. Winter is again approaching and I am petrified I am doing it all wrong. We would hate something to happen with Toby and I have tried to get help from my local vets, Rspca and a reptile rescue but to no avail. We are considering letting him go to someone with more knowledge and who can look after him properly. Any advice or help. Thanks.

Hello Anita,

If you upload some photos, I can let you know the species. You can then print off a TPG Caresheet. (Just click on "The Tortoise /" box.)

Make sure you have the correct type of bulb with a reflector.

Can you also let me know it's weight please (as an indication of age.)

Too much trouble ?

Best to find a good home for it.
