When keeping wild animals, nature should always be used as a model. This is the only way we are able to keep our turtles as species-appropriate and as close to nature as possible.

I have always been fascinated by the Mediterranean nature. In spring, entire landscapes turn into overflowing gardens. The summer drought enchants with its diverse hard-leaved plants, the evergreen bushes and the sometimes abundant succulents. In autumn, when the first leaves are already falling, the bush landscapes awaken to their second bloom. Depending on the season and the landscape, the intoxicating scent of flowers, the spicy aroma of herbs and fruits, the airy, fresh smelling bush forest or just the salty tasting sea breeze are in the air.
It is therefore certainly not surprising that my garden exudes a certain Mediterranean flair. In addition to the countless Mediterranean potted plants, including citrus trees over 30 years old, and the two ponds for my turtles, my tortoise enclosure is the centerpiece.

Through my many excursions into the habitats, guided by the example of nature and with the appropriate technology, I created a natural habitat in which my turtles can lead a wild animal life more or less left to themselves. This constant and therefore stress-free life is, in my opinion, the key to every posture and 100% success in reproduction.
