    Was on a U.K website dedicated to Hermanns, the eastern variety is the most common over here, and is the 'bigger' of the two varieties. It grows to approx 20cm so even then it aint big.

    Just to add rue, ive posted on my journal a bit about hibernation, you should check it out.
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

    I think I'd need one that doesn't have to hibernate...

    ...but those are mostly larger species I think?

    Rue, if I happened to have just lots of money to mess around with, I would have a Paludarium with 3/4 land and 1/4 water and have some little frogs, turtles and maybe some geiko's? I am far better at land plants than water plants. Too bad they don't have cute little silver dollar-sized turtles.

    I "almost" went there and got as far as ordering the mulch, the potting soil, the hygro-balls, and all the pots for plants. Plus the plants! Then said to heck with it and crammed everything in my "forget I exist" closet.

    LOL...I notice, that while it's all crammed in the 'forget I exist' closet...you haven't actually forgotten...

    There have been a couple of animals on my 'maybe rescue' list...that I'd have to seriously consider should they ever come up.

    For example...I don't really want a macaw...but I'm fascinated by them. My youngest son's friend's mom has a macaw...and if this particular bird ever came up for rehoming...I might consider taking her...but there would have to be a real need to 'rescue' her...for example...no better home came up, or she was going to the humane society...or the really odd people that live around the corner from them where willing to take her and I'm pretty sure she wouldn't live long in that environment...

    A tortoise is another such animal...thankfully, we don't actually know of anyone who has one. Safer for me that way.

    No it's not. With proper permitting and housing, they are obtainable. Then there is always the $$$.

    ...and then of course, you'd need several...and saddles...so you can get involved in tortoise racing...
