Despite tortoises being fascinating to watch, I also enjoy the care side of things. I try to give them a nautrual diet of weeds, plants and flowers. I forage for these, normally whilst walking the dog. Last week the dog and I went for a wonder and came home with three carrier bags of foraged goods! There was a bag of tortoise food, a smaller bag of blackberries and then some apples too! This is a photo I took a few weeks ago of the tortoise food I picked one morning. Beautiful, don't you think?
I keep two groups of torotises, a breeding pair of Algerian spur thigh tortoises and three of their babies and a group of young Hermanns tortoises aged between four and twelve, in years to come I hope these might breed too.
I also have some recuse tortoises, I will introduce them on another occassion.
