When my mother went into a residential home I acquired her two tortoises which have now been in the family for 47 and 57 years! Early photographs confirm no change in their appearance during this time! One was a foundling (from the days when tortoises frequently escaped and wandered from garden to garden) and the other cost 7/6 (0.38) from a pet shop - very good value. Wonderful and characterful friends.

Why do people only get one? What if he or she gets lonely? They need one more for the pair!

A glass terrarium is fine though it is discouraged because it doesn't allow air to flow in and out easily as a wire mesh cage. As for size it is always recommended that you give any pet an enclosure that is as large as possible but after confirming with several websites myself I found that a single greek tortoise needs only a 4ftx2ft enclosure. it is also recommended that he can spend as much time outdoors as he can, which is why I designed and built my own 4ftx3ft wire+screen mesh cage so during the summer my little buddy rocket is almost self sustained thanks to the sun. good luck.

Hi, I have just homed a spur thighed greek tortoise and have read loads about him, but I am concerned that I am housing him in a glass varium. Although very large, most of you choose not to house this way. The place I got him from has only just started selling them and I probably know more about him than she does, which at the moment is not a great deal. This has been my dream pet since being small myself, and as an animal and tortoise lover I want to do the best I can for my friend zippy. So if anyone can help, please do. Thank you, maxine and zippy

I have my first Red Foot Tortoise. His name is Tooter and he is the most adorable creature. He has a companion, a female Russian Box Tortoise named Tina. Tooter is almost her size now and will surpass her soon. They are both very curious and playful. I put them in a small tub of water to bathe a couple times a week and allow them some play time to walk around and explore. The cats are very gentle with them and they seem to enjoy their curiosity although I always keep a close watch on them. I love to watch how excited Tooter gets when he explores and Tina too loves the feeling of being able to go where ever she wants to. I've never seen a tortoise run like she does! They respond to my voice and Tooter too, leans his head forward to touch nosed with me. Tina has things to do she doesn't care too much to be handled and spoiled but Tooter loves to have his little feet rubbed and is very fond of attention and touch.

I have a wonderful red foot named sammy. He is 5 years old. He is very sweet and curious. He loves strawberries and lettuce. But unfortunately he has some trouble walking. He lost his foot on his right leg at a young age. SO he is a little unbalanced. He is a bit shy but he loves basking in the sun and roaming around my backyard. He even gives kisses by stretching his neck out to touch noses with you. They are the most amazing animals. I love my Sammy!
