    Please help

    Initially, where are you as there are only so many places in mainland Europe that your tortoise would be found wild, and could survive in the wild across all seasons. Releasing him elsewhere could mean he cannot feed or survive a winter depending on where you are. Try googling Tortoise Table...

    Need Help; tortoise making too much noise!

    I think this needs to be flipped around. You are focusing on the discomfort it's causing to your flat mate, but not to the tortoise. Any adult tortoise is wild ranging and needs significant space beyond that of a room in a house (unless it's solely given over to him and planted up etc), even so...

    Hi new here with a baby greek

    You really need to have a look at the care sheets on this forum. They will help a lot. Also take a look at the Tortoise Table Plant Database (Google it) it will give you a good idea of what is safe for a mediterranean tortoise of which Greek is a type to eat. A couple of points: Greeks cannot...

    Substrate built up into my tortoises leg cavity

    While Tortoises do not appreciate petting and handling constantly, I believe there is a place for getting a Tortoise happy with being inspected frequently including full visuals of all parts of legs, under tail etc and into shell.

    IS THIS WEED OKAY TO FEED TORTOISES

    I pay £19.99 annually for it and it's absolutely invaluable.

    Can anyone ID?

    That's absolutely what it is, this variety is Silver Urn, also known as Living Urn, or Living Vase. All Bromeliads can be eaten by tortoises.

    Northen Italy Testudo graeca ibera

    I never saw your thread before! It was really enjoyable to read! You clearly have researched and made a lot of effort on the care of your tortoises! All the names are ones we would recognise in the UK, except Oogway...can you provide some background, is it a name from a child's TV programme or...

    Confused beginner with a hermann's

    Further to my other response, I also wasn't a fan of their volunteers and 'employees' leaving positive reviews online for them. .and sorry OP a bit off tangent.

    Confused beginner with a hermann's

    I went there to discuss possibly getting them to hibernate my tortoise one year while i travelled but having spoken to them decided against it. I too was unhappy to see tortoises still out in very small enclosures, with multiples kept together when overnight temperatures were around 3-4 degrees...

    Confused beginner with a hermann's

    Sorry two responses, just for clarity/ advice then, in the absence of bark or coir being available in a location, possibly as in the example of the OP, what is the suggested "least harm" bedding as a possible alternative in your opinion?

    Confused beginner with a hermann's

    I totally disagree with most of their methodology there on various things; they told me my tortoise was without a doubt female when I've seen his willy and they said I was wrong. I argued my tortoise was an Ibera and that was why he was dark, because he was northern and they said Iberas are...
