(Hintlesham, just past Copdock, Ipswich)
Happy for them to all go together, or separately. £130 each, or all three for £350
I am sadly having to re-home my baby Hermann Tortoises due to having an obsessed dog that won’t stop bothering them – fortunately they are in a covered cage but she has caught her paws and teeth on the bars and I intended to get an open table for the tortoises but this will not be possible. So, with regret, they will have to go for their own safety.
With Hermann Tortoises, once they are set up with their home, heat, lighting and outside access for warmer days, they are the easiest pets to care for. Great for kids .. but please be aware they can last up to (and poss more than) 80 years!
* UK captive bred 2016 Hermann's tortoise - hatched June-August 2016
* feeding and growing well * incubated for female but it's not a 100% guarantee
* all have correct paperwork (DEFRA Article 10 Cites certificates)
* been fed a natural diet of small amount of Florette whilst being introduced to weeds and wildflowers (they love lilacs & lambs lettuce!) with regular use of calcium supplements
* current substrate pure top soil
* well handled and do not hide in their shells (they love having plastron and under their chins gently stroked!)
NOTE: they will need a set-up, including lighting and heat, ready for them (NOTE: this is NOT CHEAP!) along with background knowledge of their needs and diet before they go to their new home
Important Checklist for adopting or buying a Tortoise
Before making contact, or planning a visit for this Tortoise, please make sure you have considered all the points made on the below checklist. We advise that you DO NOT buy a reptile from the advertiser unless you are happy that you can tick off every point on this list and are confident that the advertiser is genuine. If you have any concerns over an advertiser please report them to us.
The fact that you’re considering adopting, or buying a new reptile is an important decision. Your new scaly friend will solely rely on you in many ways, so it's important that you’re 100% committed beforehand. You can do further reading about caring for a reptile and their well-being in our pet advice section.
Is the advertiser genuine?
Confirm that the advertiser is genuine. You can do this by arranging a visit with the potential advertisers home, if they try to avoid you visiting, or make excuses, then you should be concerned. If the advertiser asks for money, or deposit to be paid online without you visiting the reptile at their home, or they request to meet you somewhere or drop the reptile off at yours, then please DO NOT agree. We advise that you should never send money online. If you’re concerned about an advertisers authenticity then please report them to us.
MyPetZilla conducts various checks on advertisers on this site, but are unable to confirm that all are genuine. So please make sure you visit the advertiser at their home and verify this yourself.
Age of the reptile
The vast majority of reptiles, such as; Tortoises, Turtles, Lizards and Snakes should be at least 8 weeks of age before they leave their mothers.
Confirmation of the CITES Article 10 Certificate
There are certain exotic pets such as some species of snakes and majority of tortoises that are covered by CITES regulations. You must ask the seller if they are in possession of the Article 10 certificate and if you decide to purchase or adopt the reptile, then you must ask for the original copy of this certificate.
Health check of the reptile
It is very important that you check the health of your reptile before you decide to adopt or buy. Although this can be difficult, most sellers will agree that you can return the reptile within 48 hours should they have any health issues. It's worth taking your reptile to the vet for a complete health check as soon as you take them home. The seller should be willing for you to do this. If the reptile has already had a health check by the sellers veterinary practice, then they should provide you with the legitimate paperwork to support this. It is also worth ringing the vet to confirm everything beforehand.
