    Rehoming beautiful Western Hermann - Brighton UK

    Im so sad to be rehoming my beautiful Western Hermann tortoise Greta. She’s the absolute loveliest pet and I adore her, but I worry I can’t give her the space she needs. She is 2 years old andp loves to roam, climb, snooze and eat. She’s low maintenance but is much more active when there’s...

    Sexing by plastron?

    Hi there! I took my little Reggie to the vet today, and the vet said he thinks he is a she, because his plastron is very flat; he said himself that indicators vary species to species, and everyone there asked if he was a Russian, so it's not like they're Hermann's "experts," just a local exotic...

    Hey tort lovers - I have a group of 4 Hermann living outdoors. I know one of them is a 4 year old male, but I am not 100% sure on the 3 pictured in this post. I believe 1.Squirtle is female and so is 2.Speedy after lots of research but I am not confident. Anyone disagree? Also, I think...

    My Hermann tortoise has a greyish white spot on shell where it should be black

    I tried rubbing oil on the area with a toothbrush and it didn't do anything. Maybe it's got something to do with the nutrients he's getting? I've been feeding him dandelions/clovers from the wild so I'm wondering if it could be the result of pesticides, too much oxalic acid or protein...any...

Casually curious, as the tort was I believe temperature sexed at a higher chance...

    Thank you to the tortoise forum!

    Just wanted to say thank you all for giving me advice in the beginning and seeing all the advice given in the past, I'm so glad I found you when I did. I thought I had everything together, but there probably would have been pyramiding due to ambient humidity issues, and he has a nice varied...
