Just been given Bert!! a two and a half year old Horsfield, any help advice etc gratefully accepted as I have not kept a tortoise for years ( since I was a kid ) and then he wombled round the garden quite happily until it was time to hibernate.

Hi & Click and drag me down to the editor 


May I suggest you start by reading through the Horsfield care sheets we have on our website and if there is anything you require clarifying - please post on here where we are lucky enough to have both experienced and newer keepers who are always willing to help:-


May I ask what accommodation/heating/lighting you have for him/her?


Kindest Regards

I have 2 horsfield torts and they really are fantastic just like this web site!  Everyone is soooo helpful and supportive.  I felt completely lost until I found this site and no matter how silly you think yourquestion is just ask and you'll learn lots.

Would love to see pics of Burt too!
