The old way - In the garden

The traditional way to  keep a tortoise seems to work for the select few, they must be very hardy!

Tortoises come from hot climates, the UK is not hot!

In order for them to grow properly, and healthily tortoises require vitamins and minerals that are not naturally available in your garden particularly calcium.

Unhealthy, underweight or overweight tortoises were hibernated, sometimes at incorrect temperatures resulting in death for the tortoise.
