    Just got her last night

    I guess I should have introduced myself a little better. I’ve been a member here for years. This is just my first Leopard. I found the forum years ago when I took in my first Russian. You all have helped me so much over the years. Started with a tiny tortoise table and now my heard has a...

    Just got her last night

    I just picked up this girl(so I was told) last night from a neighbor. She said the tortoise is about 2 yrs old. The pyramiding is pretty bad (she was kept in a gerbil cage). I have her now in a closed chamber enclosure but do you think it’s going to help stop it from getting any worse? Also...

    Temperature help for hatchling

    Russian egg incubation time?

    What's the longest your russian eggs have inqubated? I have one egg at 154 days and I just don't know what to think. Here's two images of the same egg taken about 3 weeks apart. Any suggestions?

    Identification please

    Is MBD mainly caused by poor diet and care or is it something they are born with. From my understand this poor little guy may be up to 4yrs old and has lived on meal worms and strawberries only. Now that my sister has it hopefully she can give it the love and help it needs.

    Identification please

    My sister just took in this little rescue and we were looking for an identification for this poor little dude. It looks like he's got MBD, what do you all think?

    do superworms eat superworms?

    The best thing I can recommend to you is U-tube vermiculture composting. I was buying worms at Petco every other week for my box turtle. Then someone gave me about 200 worms and showed me how to set up a verimculture bin. Super easy! I haven't bought worms since October to feed her. Two $5.00...

    Very Upset! What would you do?

    I think she was picked up and moved unless she climbed a 4 foot wall with out being seen, but judging but the dirt and things stuck to her, I'd say she's been here all week. We have 1/2 acre of heavily planted yard, its a tortoise paradise when they get loose.

    Very Upset! What would you do?

    GOT HER! GOT HER! She is was at the opposite end of the yard (so she had been picked up and placed on the other side of a wall, but still in my yard). I am so happy. She looks like she's had a few fun days roaming and smells of lavender :). Yay.

    Very Upset! What would you do?

    The workers finally just showed up. I asked the one guy who speaks fairly good english about it, his response was "they hide". I told him she is very sick and will die if I can't find her and offered his guys $50 for the first one to find her.

    Very Upset! What would you do?

    Nope, just came back in from looking again. Still no signs, and yet again...no fence guys as of yet. I am going offer a reward to the first one that finds her. I just want her back.
