the pic is in the inherited tortoise thread....i think u replyed 2 that. it was kept in small viv n feed peas & cabbage. he has bad pyramiding but im worried about him & think the best thing is 2 take him 2 vets. i think it was identified as a hermanns. i just wanted 2 weigh him n c how the poor guy is really. im just worried now weve inherited him that if i taake him to the vets they might say hes seriously ill & iv grown 2 love him in a short space of time. also hes never hibinated & i wont hibinate him now as i think hes 2 ill & wouldnt survive!!

ok thanks alot, we have just had him this week so i understand he'll still be weak!! also will he ever grow as big as a normal hermanns or be tiny or will the right diet & calcium help him grow?
what age do these fellas live 2 also?

thanks
