    Hi, great to see more people with elongated! They are one of my favorite species! They are very friendly and social, very gentle! I recently just added a second one. Great choice!

    Weird growth on beak

    I’m with the others, the beak needs trimming. And very well could have caused injury or etc, from attempting to eat off alignment. It could be a totally different issue, such as maybe an abscess. Either way, the beak needs trimming.

    Russian tortoise substrate brand

    I never had bugs in my substrate. Are they outside? Could old food be in your enclosure ?

    Which tortoise do I own

    Russian, make sure you soak he looks dry. I would also change out your substrate to something like coco coir, top soil mixture .. or other tort friendly bedding.

    How’s “ he” looking?

    I will post photos from when I got “ him” to today. There’s obviously growth lines, and have been doing good. I’m extremely paranoid about pyramiding even though I have everything “ correct.” I think this is just some growth, but what do you all think [emoji848]

    Won't hibernate

    I have been researching about it. I know this is not the time for her. She’s been awake and acting normal. I’m just unsure if I should do this next year or not.
