Tortoises are calm natured animals who enjoy affection and make the perfect pet, given the ideal home. They can live up to 150 years- dependent on species and grow to a variety of sizes.

Tortoises have different dietary requirements, however, the majority enjoy leafy greens, grasses and weeds and some enjoy fruit on a rare occasion.

There is a vast range of tortoises available, from many different parts of the world, each have their own care requirements. Horsefield or Russian Tortoises (Testudo horsfieldii) are found in areas of Asia such as; Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India and some parts of China. Horsefields are one of the smaller species of tortoise, ranging up to around 7-8” and enjoy a dry environment.

There is a range of tortoise housing available from vivarium and table set ups to outdoor enclosures for those summer months!
