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 the 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.
Hi! I am looking to get a sulcata tortoise sometime this summer. Im doing all my research and getting all the supplies I need for it first though. I was wondering if you will have any for sale to be shipped to Ohio 43026 area, or if you have any reputable breeders you'd recommend ordering from. TIA!
No most that have happened to him is a broken beak that has grown back. The advice on here has been more helpful than the Vet's advice! My Family has had turtles for over 32 yrs. We have never come across this before. Never knew they could get kidney failure! So thank you all for the posts and advice that has helped Our Lil guy!!
Saw the site on Saturday (5/8/21) looking for advice for my Turtle (Russian) because the Vet stated he might have kidney failure! Found so many helpful tips (i.e. Carrot water/Dandelion flowers). So Saturday started with the carrot water and dandelion flowers and the fluid around his neck has started to go down!!!! He (Gamera) has never ever had this issue. My family has had him since 2000.
