I have a Russian tortoise named IvantheGreat (all one word). He was found on our dirt road by my neighbor. I have built an enclosure for inside our tv room right under a bright sunny window. It is about 4 ft long by 2.5 ft wide and high enough he can't climb out. He loves yellow bell peppers, Kale and spring mix. His shell is rough. Do I need to wash it with a soft toothbrush? do I need to oil it? With what?
Nice to meet you! I just got my baby sulcata exactly 3 days ago. So I'm still a little bit confused about what requirement should I buy for my baby sulcata...
Now I'm looking for a lamp for my sulcata, should I get a UVA or UVB lamp? or even both? and what number of watt do you prefer?
Beemer is awake, he likes the new water dish and spent quite awhile in it when he came out. He likes to be misted I have discovered too. Do tortoises shed skin?
I think he's is cold. I got a thermometer it reads 70 at night during the day on the cool side, but 90 under the lamp. I thought this would be ok but he always wants to lay on the warming mat, which is where he has burrowed.
