  • Hello. Looking to buy some of your products. Likely a variety pack. Any specific recommendations for a Russian? I feed a mix of some weeds and store bought escarole, raddachio, or endive. Looking for more variety while my plants grow. Thanks!

    Sorry for the late response. Maybe we conversed via email? Testudo Munch is good for Russians.

    No worries. No converse over email, but I did just receive an order. Very happy with it, thanks! I'll get that one next time.
    I read your attachment. My tort doesn’t have any outward signs of uri, but she makes crying sounds that I think must be a uri. It’s not all the time, just sometimes. Is that a uri?

    Torts do occasionally make noises, kind of depends on how often and what context. Does the tort also grimace noticably or strain their limbs during? Start a thread and include info about your tortoises enclosure, temperatures, etc. . Photos help.
    I've just read about ten rave reviews of your tortoise food. :) Do you have products suitable for gopherus agassizi?

    I do, they might all be thought of as the annual weed type plants - dandelion, plantain, marsh mallow, red clover herb, alfalfa. What is your tortoise eating now? Most of these things are intended to be mixed in with grocery store greens to increase nutrient density and fiber.
    Hi! I have a baby Greek tortoise that I’ve had for about 4 days and I want to give him a great diet even though he’s a little picky. What are some things I should purchase from your website to give him a good balanced diet. You have a wonderful selection!

    I'd suggest the variety pack called 'testudo munch'
    Do you have any leopard tortoise hatchlings coming available in the next couple months?

    I have one right now, just weighed yesterday and it's at 78 grams. I'd like to get it above 100 to ship.
    Will, I'm interested in buying some cactus pads from you. I want to confirm that it is ok to feed to my Russian tortoise.
    Thanks,
    Rob

    I made a 'conversation' responding to your inquiry. Yes Russians can eat it.
    The temperatures here in Charleston will be around 80 tomorrow and our 3 year old tortoise will be feasting outside for Thanksgiving. Is the baby tortoise too young to go outside (in enclosure) for a little bit? What is the minimum temperature/time for it?
    Thanks,

    With the opportunity to be in direct sun (and also to sit in shade), mid 70Fs are okay. Keep in mind a crow or any small mammal can make a meal of them. Also this is when getting desiccated (dried out) can happen. So a heap of something moist to be able to hide in is good, like tallish growing grass.

    We sat and watched it explore the outside enclosure for about 45 min yesterday and today. It munched down on some grass and weeds.
    The tort is out for delivery. I will let you know when it arrives. Quick question, how long should I quarantine him from our 3 year old leopard tortoise?
    Thanks,
    Marion

    Quarantine serves more than one purpose. Aside from seeing that there may or may not be disease, it gives you a chance to know the tortoise as an individual. I think that is equally important. I usually go no less than three to six months. Some individuals will live there life as if in quarantine until I seek to try and mate them with another.
    Hi Will,
    I was curious what type of bedding was used when the tortoise was in your care. I would like to keep it the same while the tortoise its adjusting to new habitat. Thanks

    I use coco husk chunks and cypress mulch. these are larger particles than coco coir, so they can't ingest it and it makes them work a little to get around by walking. I keep it very moist so that underneath the 1.2 to one inch layer there is standing water.
