    Soaking and age guesses?

    Soaking and age guesses?

    Hi! I have a leopard tortoise that I got a few months ago, and I was wondering how old he is? Our guess was 3? He is around 10 inches. Also, I've seen that some people soak and bathe their tortoises? There is a wide but pretty shallow terracotta pot base with water semi-buried in his enclosure...

    scared of the gardeners?

    The dog house we got is insulated and sealed, and the door is on one side, so the heat stays in better. There's a think layer of timothy hay in the bottom as well.

    scared of the gardeners?

    He already has a doghouse that he sleeps in at night, would you suggest that I put a heat lamp or something in that?

    a couple questions :)

    Hi! I was just wondering if anyone knows if watermelon rinds are okay for leopard tortoises to eat? Also about how often can they eat fruits and treats? My tortoise also has a kind of a lot of pyramiding (he had it when we got him about a month ago). Any suggestions on what to do to fix it, or...
