Jacqui, I saw an old post that stated you were in Nebraska. I live in NE and just got a sulcata. I’ve done my research and contemplated it for a long time before committing to it. We live on a farm and I use green houses in our market operation, I have some ideas to extend my sulcata’s outside time in the shoulder seasons, was just curious what you do?
Well, I guess she's alright, as she is posting on the forum. the rest of my family treats me like that too. I give up. I've done a whole lot to be a nicer person, but none of them know that as they don't want to have anything to do with me. It's their loss actually. Now it's me who wants nothing to do with them. You are very lucky to have a family that obviously loves you.
Jacqui....Been trying to call my sister and can't get an answer, she never goes any place for the whole day. Do you know anything? I always get worried about her....maggie 541-231-1366 Thanks , how are ya?
Hi, I found a badly injured tortoise on my way home yesterday, probably ran over, I can see that its shell is badly broken, bleeding and I think a gut came out and cut due to the impact...some grass it ate came out from that gut...where can I bring the poor guy because I’m still hoping it can still be treated or something...I feel very sorry about it and wish I can do something to help
My adopted Russian Tortoise looks like it has some shell problems. His shell is very dry and flaking. He has white spots in the shell top indented in the shell. The underside is peeling and entire parts are coming off. I started treating with some chlodexine in case I'd shell rite. Not sure what is wrong or what to do. I got him this way but seems to be getting worse. Or maybe it's better. Not sure. Please help
Im Emily new to the forum. Ive already written a thread to introduce myself but i wanted to reach out to others and say hi as well. I dont know much about lemon drop tortoises, but im sure theyre interesting. How long have you been raising them?
We are just so overrun with tortoises, the thought of making more is freaky. But we do understand the difference of maintaining a species. With that said, I have no idea where this planet stands in regards to the Belliana. Seems other Kinixys are not so rare. So while I'm putting weight on her, making sure she's not egg bound and is healthy, we want to learn more and do what is best for both her and her species.
Hi Jacqui. Seems this little HB rescue has been creating quite a stir. I joined a FB HB group and they are going nuts about having her in the Kinixys Conservancy. I just need to learn a bit more. I think Josette and her husband (who own the actual rescue that "owns" her) are open to discussing the idea of placing her in a breeding program.
