      Thank you for closing that thread before I got in trouble. I was just trying to be realistic. Now she's giving it to me in PM's. I told her to knock it off or I'd make a thread and post all the bad stuff she's saying to me....hahahaha. Anyway, thanks.

      Hi my greek tortoise who is almost a year old (will be one year old in December) has not been pooping lately. He continues to eat regularly and bathe regularly (30 minutes every other day in luke warm water) he tries very hard to get his stool out but always fails. He used to be very active and such but lately he has almost seemed weak. Should I take him to the vet? Please help. I'm very concerned for him. Thank you!

      You mentioned in one of your posts that feeding prickly pear cactus makes your tortoise have diarrhea. Mine eats about one cactus pad a day and he is got the runs! Am I feeding him too much cactus? thanks! Jordan

    I live in SoCal with my husband and our menagerie. I'm an archaeologist by trade and an amateur testudinologist on weekends. I am drawn to tortoises because of their amazing personalities as well as the challenges of researching, gardening, constructing enclosures, and just learning everything I can about these amazing prehistoric little beings.

    We had California Desert Tortoises in our family when I was a kid, so it was natural for me to raise them when I grew up. My parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents all had DTs growing up. We were the weird tortoise people long before having tortoises was cool. I can't imagine life without them. My torts are more than pets, they're family.

    I strive to be as open-minded as possible when it comes to tortoise care and welcome any comments, positive or negative, regarding my husbandry techniques. I'm here to share my experiences and learn from others. Feel free to PM me anytime.

    Sincerely,
