    Should I re-home my russian?

    ALSO POSTED TO CONTROVERSIAL TOPICS SECTION Hey everyone. I haven't been on here in awhile. I adopted a female russian tort. from a friend in March 2017- she was clearly being neglected, and I absolutely fell in love with her. I renamed her Ollie, and I attempted to turn a rabbit hutch into an...

    best hydrometer/hygrometer?

    What exact tool do you all use to measure humidity in your enclosure, and how would you rate it? Could you state where you got it from too? ALSO. If I want to measure humidity, would it be a hydrometer, or a hygrometer? I've seen people use both words to explain the same thing.

    Leopard tortoise diet

    That is an amazing story!! I am so glad she is safe and being taken care of by you. Personally, I think it would be best to stop feeding her tomatoes. She won't starve herself- offer her food, and if she doesn't eat it, oh well. Eventually she will eat due to hunger. THAT IS JUST MY PERSONAL...
