Golden Greek tortoise habitat
Both species are common in moderate to hot arid climates and both may remain fairly active late into the winter, aestivating partially submerged into shallow pits or burrows, retreating for brumation only during the coldest times of the year. The natural diet of both species is similar to that of other Greek tortoises (T. graeca) consisting of edible weeds, thistles, and vegetative debris.: Golden Greek tortoise size: Maximum adult shell length of 7 inches for T. flower and 11 inches for T. terrestris, males often being considerably smaller at maturity than females.
Golden Greek tortoise for sale – ENCLOSURE:
As with most tortoises, these do better when kept in outdoor enclosures, especially in warm, arid climates. However, caution should be taken in wet, humid areas of the country. as these species are prone to issues with both respiratory disease and shell infections when kept too wet. Outdoor enclosures should be moderately sized for adults, at least 4’X4′ is necessary.
When housing your new golden Greek tortoise for sale indoors use of a “tortoise table” or large storage tubs is recommended versus glass aquariums as these allow better ventilation and will prevent the tortoise from constantly trying to walk through the clear glass.
Greek tortoise SUBSTRATEFor outdoor enclosures avoid gravel or sand as these may be ingested and result in impactions. For indoor enclosures, I recommend cypress mulch or packed-down organic topsoil
Greek tortoise for sale – TEMPERATURE
Golden Greek tortoises are fairly temperature tolerant and are usually active outdoors as long as highs remain in the 70s, however, little food should be offered with the lower temperatures. The preferred optimal temperature zone is between 85-95 degrees. Outdoors will retreat into cooler burrows in hotter weather. Indoors, a basking heat lamp should be provided. Temperatures are controlled with a digital thermometer or infrared thermometer. Thermostats are also useful to assure temperatures remain fairly constant within the enclosure.
Greek tortoise LIGHTING
Golden Greek tortoises require UVB lighting in order to process calcium properly. UVB lighting should be provided using either fluorescent (tube or “spiral” bulbs) or mercury vapor bulbs designed specifically for use in reptiles. Place UVB lighting no greater than 12 inches from the basking site. Connecting it to a timer is good in order to provide approximately 14 hours of light and 10 hours of darkness.
