    my table and reptile rack

    Nice enclosures, Have you thought about putting a cover over part of the redfoot enclosure to help with the humidity. I used plastic lids from my storage tubs, it helped.

    Beardie question

    I think, if I have sexed them right I have two boys. One I am sure of, but the smaller one I am pretty sure. Question, when they are adults can two boys live peacefully together, if there are no females around? They will be in a 125 gallon tank. I wasn't sure, I was thinking no but if...

    Add some squash, zuchinni, or carrots to the garden then they will get there veggies. Betts if you buy non organic plants from the nursery, make sure you let them set in the ground for few months to get rid of all the fertilizers and pesticides.

    Am I feeding the right diet?

    I would give less kale, and go with mustard or collard greens, endive or escrole instead of kale. You can still give kale but occasionally not as a staple part of the diet. I don't tend to give fruits, I usually go with the flowers instead.

    The neatest tortoise replicas I have EVER seen

    To bad I didn't see those before I got my first tort, I would have saved a lot of money :) $70 seems way cheaper then what I've spent over the years. Although I would never be able to replace my torts.

    All of my torts love hibiscus and they usually have them gobbled in seconds, I scored my neighbor just told me I can have all of his roses off of the rose bushes and he doesn't use any chemicals :)

    New tort owner questions

    Hello and welcome. The link Maggie gave you is a great website loaded with information. It also gives you a list of edible plants. When soaking you should use a container with sides, so they can't get out. I don't soak my adults because they drink everyday. I do soak my babies everyday...
