Hermann's Tortoise -- Friends

by Anne

I have a Hermann's tortoise and I want to know would she be happier with a friend. Please write soon because there are tortoises at my pet shop now.


Hello Anne,

A tortoise doesn't need a friend. Tortoises are happier to stay alone.

Keep it slow and steady

Hermann's wants friends
by: Anonymous

What I have heard from Danish breeders is that Hermann's are happiest when they live together. They will not play or anything, but there will be somone to watch, compete with. I have read that in their natural environment they don't live together, but normaly they live several in the same area.
