new pet

I have recently been given some tortoises to look after .. I live in Cyprus and the baby t's were living on a boat in a basket they are about 3" long and I am unsure of really how to look after them. I have cleaned there basket and put them some newspaper and a towl in to keep them warm as well as some tomatoes... can you give me some advice please on food, bathing? space needed, if they hibernate etc as I want to make sure they are well looked after till I have to give them back to the boat when its a bit warmer for them. the average daily temp here is about between 17'c and 22'c at the minute

thanks so much

You didn't say what kind of tortoise you have.

No matter which kind you have, you need to be providing enough heat and light. This page will give you information you need.

Keep it slow and steady.
