One on its own is fine its just i find them quite addictive and wanted more :shock:
You have to consider if you want another one that there will probably have to be a period of quarantine to make sure they dont pass on any diseases to each other,also you have to be prepared that they may not get on when they get older so will have to have space for 2 enclosures. If you decide to get another please get one from a breeder and not shop or online(as im sure youve already learnt!)
To be honest, although tortoises are solitary animals in the wild, hatchlings that have been kept together since hatching do respond to each other and seem to adapt to new homes better when they go in pairs. Having sold lots of babies, the people who take two or more always say how personable they are and how they eat almost the minute they get them back home. Sometimes this happens with single babies but usually they take a while longer to settle and eat, which to my mind means that they are suffering stress from being removed from their clutch mates Just an observation you understand Mrs D
Great well if there fine on their own Which he does seem to be.
he's active and eating, but if you all would have said they really should
be in pairs or multiples I would have gotten him freinds without hesitation
I would hate to think he was lonley. If i ever do get another one though
i would definatly buy it from a breeder and never a pet shop again.
