102 Year Old Bertha

102 Year Old Bertha

We do love a visit from Bertha, she came to see us at Manor Vets Exotics, Edgbaston as she woke up slightly earlier than usual from hibernation so we just wanted to make sure that everything was okay.


She had a full health check and is in fine form for 102!



Tortoise Hibernation


It is a common misconception that all tortoises hibernate in winter: some species of tortoise need to hibernate, some may or may not hibernate, and others do not hibernate at all.

Not only do different species vastly vary in size, diet, and lifespan, it’s important to know which category the breed you’re thinking of getting falls into.

If you are thinking of welcoming a tortoise to your family, you will need to do your research into the species you’re considering.

Please contact Manor Vets Exotics and we can help you make the right choice.
