Newby here, I have gone from 0-5 tortoises in the past year: 2 Greek Spur thighed (now approx. 10 months old) purchased for my kids/ family. Living on table with cedar chips. 2 mature Spur thighed (aged 2 & 3yrs - doubt ages are accurate) - rescued. Living in viv- cedar chips. 1 Hermann's (approx. 10 months) - adopted. Living on table with tortoise substrate. Any advice or guidance welcome.
hiya could i have advise i have had a tortoise for a month and he has watery eyes and sleeping a lot and barley eating i’m really nervous because i’ve told it could be a respiratory issue but others have told me not to worry so could i have some help please. With the eating they’ve tried to eat but kept missing the food like they can’t see. Also if i wake them up they’ll walk around for a big then go back to sleep
I keep finding these white bugs in my redfoot tortoises water dish every morning anyone have an idea what they are and if they are harmful to my tortoise or his bio substrate?

Hi, I am looking for baby aldabra. Trying to see if you have some available. Thanks
How often do I feed my baby sulcata? I bought him at the pet store and she told me she couldn’t tell me how old he/she is. :(
