CAPTIVE BRED BABY HORSFIELD TORTOISE 2020

Horsfield Tortoises are very easy to care for and a popular breed of tortoise because of their small size and hardy nature. 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. Horsfields require a basking hotspot temperature of 85F-90F during the day. At night time the temperature should between 65F-70F. These tortoises 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.

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 Horsfield 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.

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

    My tortoise is happily fitting in with his new home and seems extremely content. He is really entertaining and we already like getting to know what he seems to like. He loves eating fresh Kale and we have him his first proper bath this morning which he loved. We were given such support and good advice from the Tortoise centre and we are loving our new family member Tim 🙂
