    Flat-tail tortoises

    Can someone please post some pictures and descriptions of these tortoises? Is the tail really "flat"? I am curious as I don't know what they look like.

    Hurricane Michael? Anyone here experience it?

    Hey guys, was watching Michael tear up North West Florida and wondered if anyone here has any stories about this storm to tell or if they do, what are they? It was a real horror of a hurricane especially for Panama City and other nearby coastal places.

    Can they Climb up a rough vertical block?

    Would my one year and 4 months old redfoots be able to climb straight up a vertical concrete block for any distance? Their outdoor pen wall is made of 2 rows of concrete blocks forming an enclosure against a wall and fence.

    Cuttle Bone of Contention

    Following advice on this site, I have given my redfoots cuttlebone since I got them a year and 2 months ago. There is always a piece of cuttlebone in their enclosure, although I really don't see them making much of it. Now and then I grater a bit of it and sprinkle it on their food. Now I...

    Bucking Big Bully

    Well, it has happened as I was warned it would. My redfoots are now around 15 months old and I have been keeping them together from I got them last April. All seemed OK but I was watching them carefully, and this morning I saw the slightly bigger one bullying the other one when they were in...

    Desperate Condition!

    One of the pet shops here in Jamaica called me. They know I have a bit of experience with turtles (like about 30 years) and that I care about them and would try to help. They asked me to come look at a turtle someone had brought in to them and told them they did not want it any more. I...

    Would they attack us?

    I greatly admire these fabulous creatures, but know very little about them, and was wondering if they could be dangerously aggressive, for example, mating males, towards humans or other animals? Are there any documented cases of attacks on humans by large tortoises? Just curious.

    Do they ever stop growing?

    I have heard that snakes continue to grow, albeit more slowly as they get older, all their lives. Is this true for tortoises as well? How big will my redfoots get if kept in optimum conditions? What is the record largest redfoot?

    Billy's story

    This first part is a check to see if I can post a new thread at all, because when I tried on Friday last, I had written quite a long post, and when I pressed "Enter" to post it, it just disappeared forever. This was after choosing "Preview". I did not see any button saying "post new thread" or...

    Feed Day and Night?

    When do tortoises (especially redfoots) eat the most? In other words, what is the best time to feed them? I feed them in the morning just as the sun is coming up, a big pile of food for the day and take out any that is left over as it gets dark. Should I leave fresh food for them in the...
