Hello! Hoping for lots of useful tortoise advice and some new torty online pals! I have worked with torts occasionally in the past but I now have my first tortoise solely in my care- a rescue Western hingeback. Not the species I had in mind for my first tort but sometimes an animal in need finds its way into your life and it's now my aim to give her the best life possible! She was rescued from a person who didn't know her age, species, sex or even how long she had owned her and she was only being fed strawberries, eek!
Bex.

Fantastic. Thank you. I've read through the stickied care sheet which was fab! Hard to find good care sheets on them!

Hello and welcome. I know nothing about the hingebacks, but good luck in your quest to learn. Jacqui, one of our moderators keeps hingebacks. I'm sure she'd be able to offer some tips.
