    Hey,

    I’ve read that some species of tortoise shouldn’t be housed together. I am curious to know if Leopard and Hermanns tortoise hatchlings be housed together?

    Thanks.

    Not at all. Tortoises not only don’t like companionship, but mixing species is a good way to give your tortoises serious illnesses from the other tortoise. Not only that, but they require very different care.
    Thanks for asking before doing it!

    No two different species should be housed together.
