    This deadly heat 🔥

    My dogs are “home dogs” we live on an acre. It was 115 here yesterday and the 1 day of the week my sister and I both work so had to leave the dogs out for 5 hours.

    Koopa’s summer home….

    So I put this wood box house on Koopa’s lawn in 2019 for shade and hoping for a little humidity in there since it’s on grass. She avoided it for the first year of course. Then started venturing in but never really stayed. From 2019 to the end of 2020 she had a stock tank, with the end cut off...

    The goal for feeding is to provide variety, so good job!!! Tortoise, like other kept animals, start to figure out that they are always offered foods and will start to just pick out the stuff they want. There’s terms for it in mammals: spoiled or barn sour!

    tortoise going camping

    I would live in a world of stress if I had a tortoise that flipped over often!!! Jeez!! And would not enjoy that trip thinking the tort could be on its back !!

    Quail. A hardy species? I think so.

    It’s a Citronella. It does well in the desert and so far nothing eats it insects or animal. I could use more ant control!!

    Why do so many folks make enclosures so barren???

    These are great. After reading yours and Toms posts about the Rose of Sharon and Lavatera I got some rose mallow seeds. I germinated a few indoors last year but they were not strong and died when I put them outside - fail. Then I made a cinder block garden bed inside koopas enclosure for shade...
