    Swelling on my star tortoise body

    I`ve never heard that star tortoises hibernate ! Your tortoise is very sick and needs a vet appointment asap.

    Personality between tortoise breeds

    Hermann tortoise are not shy, very active and get not so big. They are very interesting tortoises. They like to climb and roam around and need a big enclosure even when they are still small. Redfoot tortoises ( Cherry Head or Yellow Head ) get bigger than a Hermann`s tortoise and like to hide...

    How long can a sulcata tortoise live with hay ?

    Thank you Mark. I have found NutraZu on amazon but it is not available currently. I think my torts will love the food because they try to get dry cat food pellets whenever they can ! I will try to get the NutraZu pellets and add them to their diet.

    How long can a sulcata tortoise live with hay ?

    Thank you for your answer. My winter is likewise 7 months of the year. By reading all the answers I am convinced that hay can be the main food for big tortoises during the winter. The private experiences of tort owners here are the best ones.

    How long can a sulcata tortoise live with hay ?

    I had the same idea like you and I feed the hay only in one really dry corner of the enclosure. I am careful with hay and humidity because I want no mold. Mold and fungus can damage the lungs of tortoises seriously. So I don`t want the torts to poop and pee on the hay. I can get easily high...

    How long can a sulcata tortoise live with hay ?

    Maggie, I am glad that there is no problem. I am the last one who wants to create problems, but I am a newbie with these big tortoises and the ammount of food they eat. I only want to be sure to do nothing wrong. I can get sometimes grocery greens in winter for my torts but their appetite is so...

    I don`t like to put something that is wet on hay. The hay will mold fast, unfortunately. But I will try @Yvonne `s suggestion with the soaked pellets on a plant saucer. I place the food in an edge. It`ll will be more difficult to crawl over the pellets in an edge.

    Mazuri is not available in Germany but Pre Alpin. I have fed the Pre Alpin several times but they ran over the soaked pellets and made a bigh mash without eating much. But hay they eat well. Should I try the Pre Alpin once more again ?
