Talk on Tortoise Diet, April 9th, 2017

Post by Nina » 17 Mar 2017, 09:07

Evolution Reptiles have asked us to give another talk on tortoise diets, and this year's talk will be held at Exeter Hall in Kidlington, Oxfordshire on 9th April 2017. The talk will cover
-- what do tortoises need in their diet, and the composition of a good diet
-- what to feed and what not to feed
-- planting up the enclosure and creating a weed garden
and more.
Here's a link to more information and tickets for the event:

Thank you Nina for another great talk on tortoise diet and feeding.
Jonny said thank you for the seeds, he is looking forward to devouring what they produce! :D

Thanks so much, Tina! It was great to see you today and I'm so glad that you found the talk useful (lol, even if wasn't hugely different from the one you attended last year!). I hope that Jonny has some really tasty treats from those seeds, so best of luck with them. And the next time I see you I expect you to tell me all about the wonderful trip you made to the Galapagos!

Lovely to see you too Nina. I still find it informative as i always forget things! My husband said he could listen to you for hours (that's not something he says about me!!) And always nice to be around people who are nuts about torts as we are :D
I don't have much luck with anything i try to grow in pots but had success last year with the weed mix of seeds i bought at Pete's shop where your talk was last year. So i will be just sowing them in what used to be a veg bed but now a weed bed for Jonny! Oh i hope i get to the Galapagos at some point before i shuffle off lol. I will start doing the lottery and if it comes up pack your bags because you will be coming too! :)

Ooh that sent my heart beating! I would love to go to the Galapagos with you and your hubby and would happily carry your bags and wait on you hand and foot for the opportunity to go there! I shall live in hope. . . . . LOL -- tell your husband that he must be a bit mad to want to listen to a crazy tortoise lady with a horrible American accent, but that is a lovely compliment and as you say it's so nice to meet like-minded people! Are you ever in Oxford? It would be great to meet up sometime -- maybe some place half-way between us (Oxford is a nightmare for traffic and parking, as you probably know!).
