    Incubator questions

    Wouldn't the temp gradient n lower Temps at night be most natural? I'm guessing that a single constant temp is desired so that breeders can say which sex they should be? And it doesn't actually have more benefits than say hatching in nature or a closer to natural setting?

    Closed "Chambers"

    Hello Kristina, I'm feeling like the worst tortoise mommy right now! I have two amazing Sri Lankan Stars about 6 and 8 months. Had them since they were 2 and 4 weeks.

    orchid bark

    Thank you so much. I didn't realize the orchid bark is the fir bark. I found some flukers reptabark and some reptibark from zoo med. The zoo med says it's washable and reusable. Any experience with either?
