Hermann tortoises are a type of Mediterranean tortoise. They can be kept in a tortoise table or vivarium and can live outside in summer months.

Tortoises are cold blooded reptiles that need heat to function. Hermanns require a basking hotspot temperature of 85F-90F during the day. At night time the temperature should between 65F-70F. They come from hot and dry areas where the air humidity is low.

They also require Ultra Violet lighting (UVA and UVB) for at least 12 hours a day, this stimulates appetite, activity and promotes vitamin D3 synthesis which tortoises need to absorb calcium and for healthy growth. For an open top table we would recommend the arcadia combined heat and uv bulb for day time. For an enclosed vivarium we would recommend a T5 UVA/UVB tube, reflector and starter kit with a separate heat bulb for day time. Both would use a heat mat for night time.

A multi-vitamin supplement must be added to their daily diet (Reptavite/Calcium Powder). A good mixture of plants, vegetables and our Komodo complete pellet food will ensure your tortoise has a balanced diet. Fresh food should be given everyday. Visit our tortoise diet page to find out the best foods for your tortoise.

Tortoises drink very little water. They should be bathed in a shallow dish of fresh warm water at least once a week. This helps them release their motions and uric acid. Fresh water should be given everyday.

We have found that hemp bedding the best substrate to use for Hermanns as it is dust free and easy to clean. Droppings can be picked out daily and cleaned out fully every 3 weeks or when necessary.

Hermann tortoises can hibernate although we do not recommend it for the first 3 years or if they are not the correct weight and size. For more information go to our hibernation page.

    From purchase to receiving everything has been first class. Advice given to make sure everything is in place before little one arrives. To the packaging and transport of little one being delivered to the door. Has all been excellent. I certainly recommend wiltons as 5 stars if I could give more I would.

    Well what can I say… the service was absolutely brilliant. From choosing our tortoises, picking their new home, along with all the food and everything in between was just great. The pick up service was fantastic, and all the brilliant advice we received from the staff at the shop, and over the phone, was very much appreciated. I have two very happy children who love their new pets.

    The tortoise was transported to me in perfect condition care was taken, I was impressed with the tortoise I thought he would be scared but after his bath he was eating his food and walking around his new home. This is my first tortoise and the care sheet tells me what I need to do to take care of my baby tortoise. I don’t know the gender of this tortoise due to being a baby but the tortoise comes across as placid and very content. Also my older sister has named my tortoise Thomas. This company provided an excellent service and is always available if I need any advice regarding my baby tortoise. I’m really pleased that I chose to buy my first tortoise from this family business.
