    I would really like a tortoise but I have not beena ble to find enough information on care and what you need. Food, vivarium, heat [pad? Before I'd get one I would really like to have the facilities to keep care of the wee thing.
    Also, if you know where you can get one-small one.

    If you have any good information post it here or PM me with details.

    lol you don't hear this very often, i would quite like one actually, since they live for ages, can't escape very quickly and look funny when they eat; i don't think my dog would make very good company for it though.

    I was at a garden centre in Staffordshire last week and they were selling baby tortoises.

    You could also try the RSPCA.

    I tell ya. That poor thing has lived a life. They took it from the back garden and my poor Grandma was in a state so we went looking for the poor thing and the animal protection thing said that the people at the airport phoned about one being there and we picked it up. We have put my grandmas address on its shell now

    His autobiography will be out very soon
