    Georgia going to the...

    That's one of the things I really like about them, the size. Except it makes it harder for me to have one with the winters. If I had another unused room to dedicate to it, I'd have one.

    If they can survive freezing temps they should come here. I would love to have lizards in the wild. I'd also like to own a tegu.

    Free Time Projects

    Now I'm jealous! Palm and Plumeria trees are my all time fave. I have 2 plumeria that I have growing and bring them in, in winter. Unfortunately i had a lot of them that i got from a lovely forum member but only 2 survived. I have tried the cold hardy palms that some people in Illinois keep...

    Need to know if my land tortoise is female or male?

    Insurance and vet suggestions in Washington

    Don't know of any that covers tortoises. However it's likely you would pay way too much for it. Tortoises don't need a lot of vet visits if the care is correct. I have had mine since 2011 and the only one that ever went to a vet was a female that I jumped the gun on about being egg bound.

    Swirls inside shell.

    No not an infection. Many many tortoises have them.

    Post Drowning

    I would take him to a reputable vet for xrays and possible antibiotics/treatment for pneumonia. I am not one to run to a vet or to suggest it. However I think in this situation its warranted. I also hope the pool is getting blocked off.

    Turt Mom, wannabe Tort Mom

    We have a good RF section with care guidelines so be sure to check that out. Also the advice already given. I don't see any water in the turtle tank. I'm sure there is. However they do need a very large aquarium in order to have enough land and water area Also please never take from the...
