    Young Female Sulcata for Adoption

    Hello, I took on a rescued sulcata a few months ago. I live in WI and hate the thought of her being inside 8 months out of the year. I would love to find her a good home where she can be outside year round. If you are interested please contact me!

    Box Turtle Friends?

    I know most tortoises and turtles do better on their own but I have read conflicting information on if female box turtles do better in small groups? I am coming to the experts. I adopted what I read told was a male a few weeks ago but am 99% sure it is actually female. The rescue had a...

    She laid an egg!?!?!

    The new tortoise enclosure is finally done! It just needs to air out for a week or so from the stain and poly and then it will be ready to come inside! The long sides are 6 feet, short sides are 3 feet.

    Feeding live food... good or bad?

    I have a baby diamondback terrapin. Right now she is eating a variety of pelleted and flake food and once or twice a week a dried shrimp or mealworm. I have been wondering about starting to feed her live food once in awhile, probably feeder guppies and ghost shrimp.... but will this make her...

    leaf fish

    Does anyone have a leaf fish? I saw a super cute one the other day and am wondering if he would go in my tank. It is a 37 gallon with 2 angelfish that appear to be the same sex, a Germany blue ram and a clown pleco. Or does anyone have any suggestions? Tropical fish are not my forte

    Shell problem?

    What do the people with more experience think of the shell on the guy on the left? He is not mine. It is at the place a volunteer at. He is under 3 inches. The guy they got him from said his shell is shaped that was because he is "wasp shaped" and a male....It was my understanding this was...

    Gravel Cleaner for shallow water

    Can anyone recommend a good suction cleaner to get the gunk off the bottom of the turtle tank? I have a regular suction one for my aquarium but because the turtle water is shallow it doesn't work well. Thanks for any advice!

    Snails for turtle food?

    Has anyone raised snails for their turtle? A lot of things I have read say diamondback terrapins love snails. I got some of those tiny pest snails free from the pet store and have them in a 1 gallon tank with an algae wafer and they are happy as can be. Would there be anything wrong with...
