    I am very confused on why my tortoise is not pooping

    Hi and welcome to you and Buddy. As Blackdog says more info is needed especially as Buddy is so small. My tort will go longer in between poops in the winter maybe because he isn't as active as usual and activity helps the digestion. To encourage him when he is in his soak I gently shake the...

    Hello from new tortoise mom in Calgary

    Hi and welcome to you and Donatella. I don't know if there's a preferred way to move homes but I would just make sure the temps are right and there is some vegetation (free from fertilisers, insecticides etc) in there for her to hide in for security. Have you found the hermanns caresheet in the...

    TFO Upgrades

    I was surprised to see the changes when I logged in but I like it so far, and it's a bonus that the annoying ads in between posts seem to have disappeared so thanks for that. Haven't figured out how to insert a video if needed yet.

    I didn't know changes were being made so I was petty surprised when I just logged in. Looks like the ads have disappeared.

    It made me think of the song... 'Catch a falling iguana, put it in your pocket, save it for a rainy day'

    Research into MVBs

    I don't know of any articles but some members have stopped using them because I believe they seem to have a drying effect on shells and therefore cause pyramiding. I'm sure someone like @Tom will be able to explain in more detail. I still use one at the moment until I can rethink my electrics, I...

    That's very considerate of them. Good to see they are looking out for local wildlife.:) Not a case of being caught in a blizzard, but more of being caught by a lizard!!

    COLD DARK ROOM

    Well I'd better sign off, I have a really early dental appointment tomorrow before work because I have a loose crown, or worst case scenario snapped the tooth under it so it needs urgent investigation. Fingers crossed it's not the latter! @JoesMum Is it tomorrow you are off on your travels...

    Russian tortoise not active??

    I think I've read that torts have to submerge their noses to drink, so maybe he was just nibbling the dish. Personally I would stick to the water dish, as they like to self soak as well as drink. Just make sure it's accessible for the tort by sinking it level with the substrate and easy for him...

You are in the right place for up to date information and there's always someone to answer your questions and to advise on what sort of enclosure would be best for your tort. It is best to have your torts home ready before you bring one home, but before you spend a lot of...

    I do hope they can sort your leg out Ray, it must be very painful as well as frustrating not to able to use your prosthetic. Good luck at the docs a scan sounds like the best way to find out whats going on.
