    Burmese Star Baby Photo Shoot

    I think that is his favorite part about it. I always let him walk around in there for 20-30 mins after a soak to eat to his heart’s content.

    I know, right! It always brings so much joy to my day watching him walk around his enclosure and then enjoy the sun after his soak

    Smart Enclosure & New Burmese Star Hatchling

    I just wanted to give a huge shoutout to @Markw84 on his craftsmanship, dedication, and attention to detail with his Smart Enclosures and the way he cares for all of his tortoises. I had the pleasure of meeting up with him a couple weeks ago to pick up my Smart Enclosure and just received my...

    Ibera Greek Hatchling not gaining weight

    It is a shame that false or unreliable information is allowed to be posted online and made available to others, but unfortunately that’s just how the internet will always be. I know that if I had never found out about this forum, I would have kept him in an open topped table with low humidity...

    I think every day would be amazing to live his easy life and not have to worry about anything haha I do have a CHE for him, but I haven’t been using it recently since I have been able to keep the ambient temperatures in his closed chamber at 75-79 every night without it. My room is always hotter...

    Ibera Greek Hatchling not gaining weight

    When I got him, he was 15.95g. Now he fluctuates between 14.5-15.5g depending on when I weigh him. I haven’t poked through any poops, but he usually goes during his soak, and I do look at it to make sure everything is ok and I haven’t seen any visible worms in it at all. From what I can see, he...

    Ibera Greek Hatchling not gaining weight

    Hi everyone, I have posted a couple times in the past about my hatchling not eating much food, but over the past couple of weeks, he has started to eat much more every single day since I moved him into a makeshift closed chamber. He will be in the makeshift closed chamber until I can pick up my...

    Ibera Greek hatchling can’t eat food

    I wouldn't be surprised if TT had clamp lamps lining the rim of their open top dry bins with CFL's in every one all pointed down at the babies. I wish there was something I could do to get them shut down for good.
