Dwarf Western Hermanns
(Testudo hermanni hermanni)
This species of Hermanns tortoise, (UK Captive Bred 2019 and Microchipped) are much rarer than the more common Hermann (Testudo hermanni boettgeri).
We have four bred in 2019 which were all incubated as females.
They have colourful markings and only grow to about 14cm.
They should go outside on warm sunny days and can be hibernate in the winter. However we prefer to keep them out of hibernation for the first few years of their life. This will allow them to continue to feed and grow through out the winter months in the UK.
If you decide not to hibernate them, you will need one of our Complete Tortoise Enclosures as featured on our home page for £139.95.
These Hermanns tortoises really are something very special.
