Marginated Tortoises is the largest European tortoise and kept by many people in the UK.

Marginated tortoises can be kept in a tortoise table with heating or vivarium and can be outside in summer months. Marginated tortoises should be bathed in warm water once a week to keep them hydrated. 

For all our tortoises it is essential to add multi-vitamin supplements to their daily diet(Nutrobol/Calcium Powder). A good mixture of plants and vegetables such as cabbage, broccoli, dandelion, peas, chickweed etc. Visit our tortoise diet page to find out more info.

All tortoises require ultra violet lighting for 14 hours per day to stimulate appetite, activity and vitamin D3 synthesis which can also be given through natural sunlight, it promotes long health.

Marginated tortoises do not hibernate.
