    Found a cute baby Turtle!

    What are you doing in their habitat? You are obviously an invasive species.

    White fuzzy things on egg surface

    Not an expert but the one on the right hand side looks like it's no good and the white fuzzy thing on the other one should be wiped off. May be fungus/mold. What are you incubating on? Maybe the humidity is too high? Someone else will come along and help more than I can.

    Redfoot hides all day

    Well, that's a lot of "dislikes"! Very useful information. I guess it's a good thing that redfoots are just about the easiest tortoises to please when it comes to food! They eat such a variety.

    RF Swallowed Chicken Bone....

    I guess I would not give my redfoot chicken bones because of the fear of his choking on it. He eats eggshells (with the boiled egg) and occasional small snails, slugs and he has his cuttlebone and repti-calcium powder. Besides, I would be depriving my rats of their favorite food:D in the whole...

    My lad may have eaten some plastic.

    Odd Tortoise Behavior and Urates

    I am seeing what looks like plastic plants in the enclosure. Not sure that's a good idea. They might be swallowed and cause a blockage/impaction in his digestive system. Not needed. Love his face.

    Hi everyone......

    What is he on in the picture? Are his eyes swollen?

    Play sand? Real sand? what's the difference, they are both not good. Believe me, the folks here who are advising you know their tortoise stuff. They really care and want to help and I for one am so very glad I came here for help over three years ago!

    Greetings from South Korea

    Wow! I guess the herp vets know what each color may mean, and how to go from that indication. I would think that pink or reddish would mean bleeding?

    Help! Is this pyramiding

    He needs some fixing up with regard to the early pyramiding. Make sure you check out the correct humidity levels and the temperatures for this species. He seems to have been kept too dry to start. Daily warm water soaks (supervised) will do him good and help prevent further pyramiding.

    Health concern

    It might just help and maybe help us to form some ideas if we could see pictures of him and of his enclosure.

    Health concern

    Sorry to hear your torty is sick. Wish I could offer any advice but I can't. Have they done an XRay? It sounds like he has a blockage or twisted gut?
