    Our new red foot in his/her temporary home while we work on the table. We've been feeding for 30 minute periods. Great appetite so far!

    Roo shouldn't be walking around like that. He should be in his enclosure where he'll have his humidity, warmth and UVB. There are many dangers for a tortoise walking around like that. He could eat something like hair or lint balls, which could ultimately cause impaction. He could also be stepped on, cicked or even snatched by another pet of yours.

    Roo is a cute one Indeed! I hope you are keeping roo and his baby brother in separate enclosures. If you don't know why I would advise looking up the dangers of it. I can't wait to watch roo grow! Remember to post pictures!

    Chris, nice looking tort. Id suggest u sink your food and water bowls down into the substrate so your tort doesnt have to climb up into the bowl. It's more natural for a tortoise to drop it's head down into the bowl to eat or drink.

    Yes he's having a bit of lambs lettuce, I plan to trim down his underbite soon but to be honest I'm slightly scared and have been putting it off
