Tortoise Trust DVD's - Back Soon!

Postby Tortoise Trust » Sun Nov 30, 2014 3:17 pm

We have had many, many requests for these.... so in response to that, we are re-issuing the entire series very soon.

We have recent had the entire series re-mastered and made available in environmentally friendly new packaging. One result of this is that they will be available at less cost than they were originally (!) and will be able to be shipped worldwide completely free of postage costs.

There is LOADS of very good, still relevant information in these! Many include quite a comprehensive downloadable booklet, too.

The main titles are:

Care & Maintenance of Mediterranean (Greek) Tortoises

Includes sections on identification, indoor/ outdoor housing, behaviour and feeding. Excellent! With downloadable booklet. For all Testudo graeca group tortoises. Includes ID guide.

Keeping Tortoises as Pets
Designed for the beginner, this DVD offers a comprehensive outline of precisely what is involved in keeping tortoises as pets.

Introduction to the Tortoises of Southern Africa
Filmed entirely in South Africa, this exciting and unique film depicts many species in their natural habitats and discusses their fascinating lifestyles. Features leopard tortoises, angulate tortoises, hinge-back tortoises, tent tortoises and much more. 50 minutes.

Care of the Russian Tortoise

Complete with informative booklet covering all aspects of the care of this species. Indoor and outdoor accommodation, diet, hibernation, etc. Highly recommended.

Care of Leopand and Sulcata Tortoises

Downloadable booklet on the care of these fascinating and popular tortoises included. Highly recommended.

Specific information on incubator designs, construction methods and how to use an incubator once made. How to make incubators which work quickly and cheaply as well as more advanced designs.

If you have a VHS player, you can watch them still, of course... :lol:

The quality on the DVD's is a lot better, though!

Also, the REALLY, REALLY OLD videos (!) are not available on DVD, so those are probably collector's items... or antiques :lol: :lol:

Incidentally, the ones we are working on now are all being filmed in really stunning super-HD (4K) and are so realistic you feel like you are actually in the habitat...

Well, they'll make a break from the usual repeats! :lol:

I watched the 'South African Tortoise' one myself today. A lot of work went into that, and it bought back a lot of memories. There is some truly incredible footage on there of male combat in Leopard tortoises, and the famous swimming scene... I will never forget that. Just happened to be in exactly the right place at the right time! A lot of very rare species shown in that film - some of which I had never even seen before. I remember being behind the camera for one scene, and then hearing a very loud, low "HISS" only a a few feet away... huge puff adder siting there, under a bush, watching us.... we very, very carefully moved away....
