Hi iam looking to rehome my 2 tortoises. [mod edit- in Cardiff] together
The leopard is 23 years old and the Hermanns is 3 years old.
Both males
I can’t give them the care they need anymore due to a baby and work being done in the house.
I would like them to stay together And go to a household who are used to tortoises and can care for them well

Tortoises should never be housed in pairs, and species should never be mixed. These two species have very different care and temperature requirements. You are doing them a disservice by trying to adopt them out together. It would be best to let them go separately to good homes, and warn the adopters that they've had contact with another species so that they will take the proper steps to quarantine and run diagnostics before adding your wonderful animals to their own herds.

I'm sorry you have to give them up. Good luck finding homes for them.

Ditto on Tom's response. Not only should tortoises not be house outside their own species, but not in pairs, and not in such a size difference.
Please for the sake of the tortoise either rehome them seperate or explain to the new owners they cannot be housed together.

List where you are located.
Also be very careful of new members responding to your thread. They usually only respond to free tortoise threads so they can get a free tortoise and then sell them. They will not be a good home.
