I have messaged you instead. Top of the screen (onleft), below the Tortoise you will see 'new messages'. Click on that and my message is there :D

Hello,

We have a Hermann's east coast tortoise, male (this information was given to us by a vet specialising in tortoises), approximately 30 years old with a shell 8" long who has been with our family for nearly 25 years. He was found by a work colleague of mine walking along a road in St Helens who could not trace the owners.

Tort was in hibernation for longer than usual this winter and when he did appear was not interested in food at all although he was drinking. After a visit to the vet Tort was diagnosed as very run down and was kept by the vet in a vivarium under u/v lamps to raise his body temperature and tube fed. The vet gave us lots of information on the care of tortoises and we were dismayed to find that what we thought had been good care was not totally correct. Tort is currently being hand fed at home and kept in the house with the heating on but is still not feeding by himself, although when the weather is sunny and warm we have put him in the garden and he has been seen attempting to eat grass.

We are not in a position to be able to provide the proper conditions required for the safe caring and management of Tort and ask if you can take him into your specialist care.

We will not pass Tort to just anyone as he is very much a part of our family and this is very hard to do but we are very concerned that if he does not eat properly this year he will not survive the next winter.

The e mail I am using is on a computer at my place of work and I do not have access at all times, if you could supply a phone no then I will ring you to discuss further.

If this is not the right way to ask for your help then please let us know.

We hope to hear from you soon.

Many thanks

Ann & Keith

Please contact me when you can at sankey_julie@yahoo.com to discuss rehoming. In the mean time, you need to get your Tortoise back to normal. Do you have a heat lamp and have you bathed him? Aswell as not eating your tortoise could be dehydrated. How was he hibernated?

Hi,

This is Emily and Davo.

We have just submitted our application form to you and are awaiting our password.

I would just like to say what a great scheme I think this is. We have three hermanns (2m and 1f) and have been looking for one or two more females to eventually introduce to the groups for nearly two years. It has been quite upsetting to see the state of these imported torts up and down the country with every shop owner claiming they know what's best.

If only there were more ways to control them, this scheme seems very fair as tortoises need special care.

Thanks Emily
