Re: New Enclosure for Vera

OK so since my earlier post I’ve had an awful thought ... with all the slate, as he is a climber, I’m petrified in case he falls and cracks his shell so I’ve decorated again 🤦🏼‍♀️

New Enclosure for Vera

Hi everyone, it’s been a while since I’ve been on here, I hope everyone is keeping well and staying safe in these crazy times. I thought I would pop on and let you have a peek at Vera’s new tortoise table (I’ve added the photos as separate posts as it wouldn’t allow me to add them all to this one). ...

Power Cut!

So, theres a power cut and they predict 5hrs. I'm guessing Vera will be ok for this length of time? I've popped a hot water bottle in his bedroom. I am keeping a check on his temps and they seem to have stabilised at 22 degrees. I am guessing it's best to wait until the power is back on for his dinn...

Re: Vera has a mansion!!!

Yeah we will be switching him to playsand and to soil.

There's a bearded dragon in the viv and the empty space to the left of it is where our house rabbits cage lives. We've also got a puppy ... full on menagerie I tell you.

Glad you like the set up.

Re: Rehoming Info for Hermann Tortoise

Awwwwwwwwww. I'm overjoyed too. He's quite the character. Cannot wait to see what he makes of a 6ft table. He's even going to have a bath in there (well a glorified one made out of a cat litter tray lol) as opposed to his plant pot dish. I will definitely send photos. He celebrated today by having b...

So, now that's set in stone, we can get on with our new project that's been in the pipeline for him, which is extending his tortoise table to 6ft. Watch this space for photos ...

Re: Rehoming Info for Hermann Tortoise

Hi Lin

That's great, thank you!!

Yes I know about the money situation. I wouldn't be looking for money. As long as (if it came to it) Vera went to a good loving home, that's all that would matter to me.

I'll keep you updated.

Hi girls, hope you're well. It is with huge sadness I write this post but we may be needing to have Vera (Hermann) rehomed. Due to family circumstances and a life changing occurrence, we think it would probably be best if he was rehomed (yes Vera is a he lol ... we thought he was a she and when we f...

Absolutely! I
I did drop the bulb down to increase the temps a little as advised by the vet.
Just wondering if this was the reason.
