REHOMED: Theresa needs a new home

It is with regret that I put Theresa up for rehoming. She is a four(?) year old Horsefield tortoise, healthy and friendly. I do love her, but she was given to me as a gift without my prior knowledge and I had not really planned to have a tortoise. Theresa lives in the West Midlands but we are willin...

Re: Microchip?

Thanks for the info guys! The tile thing looks handy...problem is attaching it as you say. Still I have a few months to ponder on this as it is nowhere near warm enough for her to go out. Found this....but think harness could get caught in vegetation.... https://web-assets.sugru.com/hero/upload/1866...

Re: Microchip?

Thanks for your reply Nina. I too had the thought that people might not even think of a microchip, so have gone off the idea.

Now this might seem a sill y question, but it is a serious one.........can I write our phone number on her underside in marker pen? Or would it be toxic?

Re: Introducing BungalowBel and Theresa

Thank you - Doris and Dolly are lovely! Love your 'plant' tortoise too! Thanks for the Horsefield care sheet, I have printed it out for my folder. A s regards the sex, she certainly resembles a female (small tail) but she is only three years old. So I suppose I will have to wait and see. Thanks all ...

Re: Introducing BungalowBel and Theresa

Thank you Lin for your reply and good advice. About the name...I'm saying nothing either, for example I wouldn't dream of saying that she is named after the PM because she is slow to make a decision and even slower to act :lol: (Only joking!). I'm going to see if I can put a photo on now: ETA : Can'...

Introducing BungalowBel and Theresa

Hi there! I was given a gift of a young horsefield tortoise about five weeks ago. This is the first tortoise I have owned since I was a child in the 1950s! I am aware we did not treat them properly in those days so have had to have a rapid education in tortoise care. Hopefully I am doing it right. S...
