    New Ornata

    So while I was feeding the box turtles at Y's I noticed one who had closed eyes and it was still in the same spot for a couple of days. So I brought it in to Y and she said it was a rescue and hadn't eaten for a while. So I soaked it and set it up in one of her enclosed thingys. I noticed her...

    YuTai and Simon

    My new friend and neighbor from Taiwan knows nothing about animals, so of course I asked her to take care of my birds, tortoises, turtles and cat. She did an excellent job, except some things she just didn't know. For instance, my Hosta was not for cats to eat. I grow spider plants for the cats...

    I'm going out of town and my neighbor is going to take care of my house, so I was taking her around so she can see, with instructions. The very first habitat we walked up to had a deformed box turtle upside down under a CHE. She was so hot I'm surprised she didn't burst into flame. I would have...

    Ungrateful Sulcata

    So I have posted photos of the basically new pens I made for Big Sam and Mary Knobbins. My pens are not fancy like a lot I see here. Anyway, I gave Big Sam just a little more room with lots of graze, and after Sam saw what I did he started grazing on that lush side immediately. So I went into...

    Knobby again

    This tortoise is simply too much. Yesterday he decided to break into the box turtle pen. After chasing the turtles around, Kobbs decided to go for a swim. Well, not exactly...he was eating the big healthy patch of white clover, and grazed himself off the cliff. So he fell down into the water. I...

    Knobby knocked down the cinder block wall to go in and attempt to destroy the grape vine that helps feed Big Sam and him. Knobby tried for whatever reason to go thru the grape plants, only there was no 'thru' there This is what I had to do to protect what's left of the hydrangea he tried to quash.

    Wanted frog or toad advice

    I think this belongs to a large toad, this is my box turtle pond. There's been a new pile every morning for about a week. I think it must be a raccoon, as I have seen this poop at the foot of the raccoon tree. Or so I think. My neighbor says it's a frog, but there not water in that pond...
