    Male having hard time adjusting to larger female

    Hi, just wondering if anyone else has had trouble putting a larger female with a smaller male? My male hermann has adjusted to many females but they've always been smaller than him. He's being abnormally aggressive towards her, only difference is her size. Normally I can just put a female in the...

    So aggressive

    Anyone else have a male who is extremely aggressive only towards other male Hermann's but no other tortoise male or female? "Herman", my 3yr old eastern will not tolerate another male hermann. He is perfectly fine around female hermanns, female & Male russians, basically any other tortoise but...

    Are they still really sick? If they aren't showing any improvement soon I'd take em back to the vet for x-rays. Their uri may have turned into pneumonia or have some secondary infection going on. X-ray will also rule out stones and other issues you can't diagnose without it. I've been praying...

    "Herman" my male eastern is kinda the same way. he has absolutely no fear being handled by me but still gets a lil nervous around ppl he doesn't know. Sometimes wants to act more like a human than a tortoise lol smh.. but he's unique, I have 4 other turtles who don't want much to do with humans...

    Has the vet given an x-ray? One of my female hermanns had the same symptoms but it wasnt a uri at all. When he did an x-ray to check for pneumonia he found a large bladder stone. Her symptoms were Congestion, lethargy, not lifting her back legs to walk, opening her mouth to breath bc she was...

    Different testudo breeds hanging out

    Yeah thats the only concerns ive come across online as well besides cross breeding but I'm just talking females. Would the germs they carry really vary that much being in the same testudo family? I have allowed my female hermanns and female Russians to sun bathe together & its seems they don't...

    Different testudo breeds hanging out

    Just curious what ppl's opinions would be on different breeds of the testudo family of the same sex "mingling" for lack of a better word. For example female Hermann's & female Russians basking outside together? Is there danger or harm in that?
