    Does my Mango look healthy?

    All of those ridges look ok? I just wanted to be sure it's not signs of pyramiding starting. Any guesses on the sex? I know only being a year old it's hard to determine but if I had to guess, I'd say female??

    Any male/female guesses here?

    Here is my baby. Approx a year old. I know it's hard to be sure at this age but in guessing female??

    Does my Mango look healthy?

    Hello! Mango became part of our family last July. According to the pet store, he/she was about 4 months old which means Mango would be about a year old now. We try our best to make sure she's healthy by doing all the "right things". The only place I fear we are failing her is in her diet. She...

    Spa day

    Mango loves to stand in front of the moisture being pumped into the enclosure. Maybe it's a girl? I don't know a girl that doesn't love a facial. :)

    My Redfoot will only eat these!!

    I should probably add I was given these in a ziplock bag by the exotic pet store I bought my torti from. That's why I'm unsure of what it is exactly.

    My Redfoot will only eat these!!

    I'm not sure if these are mazuri pellets or just pet store tortoise food, but that's the ONLY thing Mango will eat. I've tried everything under the sun. All kinds of produce, weeds, succulents, grasses, fruits etc. Mango will eat a bite or two of banana, strawberry, or soft carrots but that's...

    Any guesses on sex of redfoot?

    We have a young Redfoot (almost 4 inches) that the pet store we purchased from said is about 3-4 months old. I know it's hard to determine sex until they are bigger but thought maybe someone might be able to tell?

    Torti table

    It is, but mine is more of a hood shape. The ones I'm talking about are really long and skinny so I just wanted to make sure it wasn't something I'm missing.

    Torti table

    Thank you for the suggestions! That was a pic before I added a half flower pot and organic dirt/sphagnum moss on the stairs and upper level. I should have noted that! He also added some tubing attached from a humidifier under the ramp for some extra moisture. It's not doing a whole lot now, but...

    Torti table

    The basking bulb keeps the heat at about 95-100 directly under it but once I set the temp gauge about 5 inches away, it does little for heat. I'm hoping the plexiglass will make the temp overall a little warmer.

    Torti table

    When we first got our lil guy, we wanted to get him out of the aquarium so my husband built him this table fashioned after one we found on here. We are having kind of a hard time keeping the temp and humidity where we want it so getting some plexi glass today. I'm not sure we have the...

    Hello from Kansas City

    I do have a few newbie questions but I'll read through forum posts before asking. I'm sure I can find many if the answers I'm looking for here.

    Hello from Kansas City

    Hi :) after years of begging, my husband and I bought our 14 year old daughter a red foot tortoise for her birthday a couple weeks ago. We purchased Mango from an exotic pet store in the area. My husband built an awesome torti table for Mango and he/she has become kind of a family pet since we...
