OVERWINTERING YOUR TORTOISE
WELCOME TO THE HAMPSHIRE TORTOISE SOCIETY
To keep your tortoise awake and eating we have to convince him that summer is still here. We do this by:-
Providing a nutritious weed diet becomes difficult during the winter months. Why not start growing the Tladys Tortoise Mix on window ledges? If you have to resort to supermarket food then choose the most nutritious items such as watercress and rocket - available in bags on the salad section. Red, green, orange and yellow peppers are usually enjoyed (always remove the pips and cut into thein slithers).
Provide an interesting environment for your tortoise - things to climb over and things to hide in. Ask us for advice if necessary.
Don't forget to provide fresh water. A terracotta plant pot saucer works well.
Allow him to have some exercise by walking around the room (the kitchen is usually the best place so that any accidents are easily mopped up).
