Default Tortoise advice needed for beginner

I had decided to get either a herman/horsefield tortoise however after seeing an orante wood turtle today I am now unsure what to go for. Would appreciate any thoughts/input

Also unsure whether a tortoise table or vivarium is the way to go read various informtaion on both and its all a bit confusing, so if anyone has any advice greatly appreciated.

Hi I've just acquired a Horsfield and he is lush, i'm also a complete beginner but I have read a lot of about them and mostly it seems Vivarium's are frowned upon so i'm building a open top table and filling it with a soil sand mix so that he can burrow. Good luck with your new pet. Let us know what you decide!!!
