    I might try to go! It would be neat to meet you, seeing as I just ordered cactus from you and they were great (it is so much easier to handle despined pads!) Good luck with the missus.

    Hi Tortoiseluvr, welcome to the forum! I'm new too, but I found these websites helpful and thought I'd pass them on. Sulcata station has a list of grasses towards the end of the site which may be good to plant (you're lucky to have gardening space!) This site has a list of what is good and...

    Adopted sulcata

    On a very off-note, I do love being in LA. As I was standing at the checkout, with my wheatgrass, organic spring mix, and calcium citrate tablets, a woman got to chatting with me about how great the organic culture was, and then recommended these ginko biloba tablets for memory. I felt...

    Is there really an answer/solution to this problem?

    This topic was discussed with a lot of heat in the amphibian forum as well. What do you do about non-native species in sensitive areas--it really isn't possible to go in and eliminate a foreign species simply because you can't find every last bullfrog. They only need two to repopulate. D: D...

    Adopted sulcata

    Actually I think you hit the nail on the head about stress. After two weeks, the stool has gotten firm now. Guess she was just stressed about being in a new place. Arrrgh, now to go take the sand out.

    Adopted sulcata

    Hi Spike, Maggie, tortoisenerd, and Laura, thanks for the welcome. There does seem to be a spectrum of care ideas. :D It would be nice to have a section of caresheets for different species on this forum, so you can just point the newbies to read it and then ask nongeneral or exotic questions...

    Adopted sulcata

    Thanks! I am beginning to see that Sulcatas are the Axolotls of the tortoise world. Still, I am quite happy to see how this goes and to push forward with yard-ownership. I've cut back on the dandelion greens and am giving her a soak twice weekly.

    Adopted sulcata

    Her name is (creatively) "Tortoise." Unfortunately I'll be living in an apartment for at least a year. We had originally planned to get a hatchling tortoise (and a much smaller breed as well), which would have been small enough for 1-2 years until we moved...but best laid plans....) Yes...

    Adopted sulcata

    Hello! I am exceptionally new to the entire tortoise owning sector of the world, having kept a tiny fence lizard for 6 years. So you'll have to let me know about all the things I am doing wrong (or right) as I quickly figure out her care. :) I just got a ~4 year old sulcata from someone...
