    my mate used to have one, they let it out in the garden once, and it dug a hole to freedom!!!

    I think all types need a viv for quite a few years my cousin has one thats 3years old and that still has to be in a viv and just goes in a run in the garden on warm days.

    They used them in the war for tunneling in Colditz :whistling:

    I would say you have to get one, I have had them before and am looking to get one again and have found these, which i think look cool, if you want to have it open and not take up much space
    look at item number 330363575208 on ebay

    not fussed about the breed
    just don't want to buy a vivarium for it
    or do they all need a viv

    Well, before you buy one you might also like to read the laws on buying/selling of them to see if you are breaking any laws

    Don't know what?

    I can't advise as to whether you're buying illegally as I don't know the seller or anything...

    from the link I gave you

    Before buying a tortoise check the certificates which are being used and … Before buying a tortoise check the certificates which are being used and make sure it is in the sellers name unless it is a Specimen Specific Article 10 Certificate which will show the microchip number in box 4. If you suspect that a tortoise is be sold illegally with incorrect papers or no papers at all you should report them to DEFRA and help discourage the illegal trade in tortoise's.
