      Hi Tom, I don't know if there is a way to send a message on here but I wanted to get your thoughts and ideas for keeping a leopard tortoise in our part of the Oregon. Any chance you can email me at [email protected]?

      I buried another of your tortoises; dug her grave and cried over her. Something you never did. At least in the last 7 months of her life she was fed, held and loved.

      Hey Cowboy, where have you been? I recently came back to Pretend Chat after a bout with injuries, sickness, and the death of my grandson who was just 21 year old. How have you been? I see you are still active here. Why haven't you kept in touch?

      Hi Cowboy,
      I am thinking about ordering 2 or 3 Mali Uromastyx from Deer Fern Farms. am a little worried after reading the reviews. Are they usually healthy? You seem to know him well. Thanks, Joe

      Hi my greek tortoise who is almost a year old (will be one year old in December) has not been pooping lately. He continues to eat regularly and bathe regularly (30 minutes every other day in luke warm water) he tries very hard to get his stool out but always fails. He used to be very active and such but lately he has almost seemed weak. Should I take him to the vet? Please help. I'm very concerned for him. Thank you!
