Hi Carol,

I’m interested in a Russian Tortoise hatchling. I’d love to chat with you about owning one. Wondering when the next available batch will be! Thanks

Hi, I just got a red foot yesterday from a local pet shop. He actually still had a yolk sack last week.
This is my first tortoise, the guy at the pet shop told me just to put paper towels on the bottom of a glass cage for right now and not have a water dish in there but to take him out once or twice a week to soak him for 10 minutes. He said not to mist his tank right now. Can you help?
I had a question about snapdragons, everywhere I read it says there’s no known hazards and is safe to feed as a varied diet, I just want to be 100% sure before feeding to my sulcata. Has anyone fed there’s snapdragon leaves or even flowers?
Hello i new here and i dont know much about Tortoises. I only made this account because our female laid eggs and we have a male with her so i assume they're fertilized. we had originally planned to keep and help the eggs but now we cant. :( If anyone near Pomona, CA would like some eggs to hopefully have some tortoises soon please reply. :)
So my Tortoises only likes lettuce he hisses at me if I give him anything else! What can I do.
