    Hey everyone. Basically, I had a Bearded Dragon and a few weeks ago he was found to have a tumour in the stomach and after an operation to remove the tumour, he died :cry: I had a Vivarium custom made for him about 6 months before he died and of course now, it's just sitting useless. I don't...
  4. Shelled - Turtles & Tortoise
    Hi there! I've had my tortoise for a few months now and I feel like the current substrate I'm using is a bit of hassle as I need to clean my tortoises water very very regularly and it seems to be creating a bit of a smell. It's quite a sandy substrate (of course, it's not sand) which also...

    Hi everyone, I'm considering getting a hermann's tortoise for my 21st birthday in November and getting some research in before then! I've seen some people say viv's aren't good because of ventilation, but some places say they're fine.. I don't really want a tortoise table because we have cats...

    Couldn't find any "specific species threads" in the shelled section so I thought I'd start one that we can keep going. I chose the Hermman's Tortoise for this one as it is the species I keep. I haven't got any photos of my tort on me at the moment so someone else will have to start us off...
  8. Shelled - Turtles & Tortoise
    Hi all, I am really worried about my Hermann's tortoise. He has been sluggish and hasn't eaten as much as usual over the last week or so, which I'd put down to it being a bit colder, but he now (noticed yesterday evening) seems to be making a tiny pop sound when he breathes, and this morning...

    I have already got a bioactive substrate in my chameleon enclosure that has been fairly successful, and if I get ackies soon I will be using that with them. I was just curious whether I could make some for my hermann's tortoise and if i can what should I use? He is currently in a open top...

  13. Shelled - Turtles & Tortoise
    Hello all, This is my first post. I expect this has been asked many times before with no definitive answer, so I want to make sure I properly understand some of the differences between the two breeds. Russian = burrower (I consider that to be a negative) Hermann's = Doesn't burrow? (I...

    Today I got my first ever tortoise! I travelled to Perth to get her (Or he, for some reason "she" just stuck) from Hermann Bruce, and she is just perfect. :D She is three months old and I have decided to name her Taffy. Picture time, since I know how you all love them! ;) Taking her home...

    Hi, I have a Hermanns hatchling, and now that it's winter, it stays indoors under the light. However, it seems as though he is really dry, all his scales look dry and like they are peeling. The air is very dry in my house, and I am thinking of gettin a humidifier. Would this be suitable for him...
  16. Shelled - Turtles & Tortoise
    Can someone please tell me which this little fella is? You see I got him off my mum's friend and she told me he was a Hermann's, but I've recently discovered you need papers for a Hermann's and neither me or the original owner have any. I have no idea why there'd be no papers other than if he...
