    Help!!! Sulcata tortoise ate a soda can!!!

    I read this awhile back and was very intrigued! Now remember, I’m not saying to not call a vet, it’s just for your piece of mind. Also when dogs eat cooked bone fragments it’s usually a wait and see situation also.

    how to keep my tortoise cage humid?

    My Hermann’s is also 1 year old. I had an open table but quickly realized it’s too hard to maintain the humidity. I added a greenhouse. The lights hang from the greenhouse frame.
