i am thinking about getting a hatching hermanns tortoise ,i have been doing lots of research over the past year but I was wondering what your opinions were on keeping a male in a 2x5 foot enclosure
I’m not sure he works with Herman’s, but @osbornereptiles may be able to lend some advice. He’s knowledgeable in tortoises, wish I could be of more help.
This is an extremely informative website devoted to Hermann’s.
I don’t keep this species but what I’ve read, they don’t get large and should be fine in an enclosure that size. I have my adult star Tortoises in a 3x12’ enclosure. This is their indoor quarters, but they’re kept outside in a 6x12’ area when the weather is appropriate. If you’re only keeping one, I’d say you’re fine.
