Re: Theresa needs a new home

Hiya. Before we take Theresa on for rehoming we need a few things from you. We can offer to rehome for you as long as you do not want any money for Theresa. Neither Facebook or The Tortoise Table can allow any monies to change hands because we are not a selling site and the selling of animals is not...

Re: Shell flaking :o

Ah, thats why I asked where you got her. As she was gifted to you it would have been good if you had got a note to say she was gifting you the felame hermans tortoise and a signature. It really just coveres you. Your vet should know that rehomed tortoises, providing they are not wild caught is ok to...

Re: Shell flaking :o

Ok Silverwings. This is a bit of a long one, sorry for that. Yes, I am afraid they do need an Article 10 and its best to have one just incase and its quite easy to obtain one. Can I ask where you got him and how long ago (you can pm me lin@thetortoisetable.org.uk if you prefer). Have a read of this ...

Re: Shell flaking :o

I would defo get him to the vet asap because looking closely at that part of the shell on the left of the scute it does seem to be coming away from the next scute. This could be because of the missing scuute and the growth making up for what is not there but it could potentially be the start of shel...

Re: Hibernating

You are right Dot, it is a little early for hibernation so I would do exactly what you are thinking. Get them up, bathe them, make sure the room and area of the tortoises are very bright to imitate mid summer and double check the basking area is around 30*C and a cooler area of 18*C. This is to imit...

Re: Looking to rehome

Hi Gemma and nice to hear from you and being a vet nurse is a bonus when looking to rehome. I think we do have a couple of here if you go through the rehoming meny you may drop Stitch and his owner a line. She is a two year old spur thigh.

Re: Plant id if possible please

Hi Debz. I would say it does look very similar to Watermint but the mints are so difficult to diferentiate from each other. What does it smell like if you scrunch a leaf between your finger and thumb, is it minty?

Re: Can you identify these please!

I would see how they go Bex. The more room and hiding places available for them will give then a good chance of escape and to sort their differences, so to speak.
Yes, send in photos for sexing and we will do our best.
