    Hibernation

    I don't know for sure, I've just read that before...maybe it has to do with liver/kidney function? :)

    Hibernation

    I'm gun-shy about hibernation in general, so it might bear waiting for others to respond, too...but I've heard that even people comfortable with hibernating don't typically hibernate hatchlings for the first year (or few), they just bring them in over the winter; I think the young ones are more...

    Newly Finished Indoor EBT Enclosure for Winters

    Just an update now that the grass has grown in a little: [hr] [hr] I think that next spring I might try to plant honeysuckle along the back wall to fill it in, but I'll have to research that; I don't know anything about how it well it would do...

    Turtle Ramp for Water Dish

    Here's another forum post I found discussing something similar: http://www.tortoiseforum.org/Thread-Hatchling-water-dish#axzz25hcMdcvu As for me, I've used a ZooMed Repti Ramp dish for the whole time I've had mine; I just filled it with gravel when he was a hatchling to make sure that it...

    Pill bug colony

    Here's a link from new England herpetoculture: http://www.neherpetoculture.com/bugs.htm They sell a starter colony and some food for them; that's the 'sterile' way to do it, although I'm sure you could go outside and harvest your own. I ordered mine from them and got them quickly and with lots...

    Baby box turtle help!

    Congrats, good luck with them! Same thing as the others have said, UVB/heat and super-humid to semi-aquatic setup worked for me...I fed cut up worms (of all kinds, just make sure they're tiny and wiggling!), and after a few weeks I had a lot of success with small crickets, too (that's fun to...

    Newly Finished Indoor EBT Enclosure for Winters

    Thanks very much everyone, I really appreciate it! :) I'll post some more pics in a day or so when the grass fills in more...does anyone have any tips on that, by chance? It's coming up really quickly but I think it's a little sparse right now; think I should try re-seeding it, or will it...

    Indoor Setup

    When mine was a hatchling, I used a 40gal tank and lined the outside bottom quarter of it with cork; it didn't look bad to us, and prevented the possibility of stress for him. I never had any problem with nose rubbing, ect. Of course, others don't seem to have problems even without that, just a...

    Newly Finished Indoor EBT Enclosure for Winters

    Thanks! Yes, all of the big ones are Petco specials :), the $2 ones that are safe for reptiles; I've just had them for about a year so they've grown up a bit. I also planted some tortoise grazing mix sporadically all over it; it's coming up pretty nicely so far! I don't know how much of that...
