A wild species wrongly considered as a pet
The image of the Hermannís tortoise is one of a very nice animal whose presence is considered accidental in nature. The belief that captivity protects dangers is false. These are indeed wild populations and their environments it is necessary to preserve.
Captive breeding often leads to difficulties related to the lack of space due to the multiplication of individuals. As is the case here, the turtles are distorted due to nutritional deficiencies.
