The Tlady's Hiding Place    TORTOISES     HOME

Rearing a baby tortoise does require a degree of commitment to its welfare and will need some time and care and a little initial expense to create the right conditions.

This ready to print, 28 page booklet will help give you a picture of what this entails.

A Guide to Rearing Mediterranean Tortoises covers the care of Testudo species, with special focus on hatchling and juvenile care.

It is in Adobe Acrobat format (a .pdf file). It takes a few minutes to download, so please be patient.

If you don't have a copy of Adobe Acrobat Reader, download it (free).

If you can get access to a colour photocopying machine, you can feed it in at one end, and get a stapled A4 booklet at the other, or slide the pages back to back into an A4 display book.

I hope you will find it useful and will be happy to answer any queries you may have.

With best wishes to you and your torts from Linda King.
