    Baby sulcata has bump

    No I haven’t...I’ve looked him all over...it’s just the one on his eye. It seemed like there was a little piece of skin over the corner of his eye yesterday, but I left it alone thinking he’d shed it or get it off on its own. This morning it was about the same..then this evening was when I...

    youre right. I really thought I was doing the right thing by taking him to see a vet, but I’m just glad I know better now so it won’t happen again if he can pull through this. I’ve been keeping a close eye on him. It started about 4 days after he came home. I was keeping his ambient temp at 75...

    Okay, thank you! Last night his ambient temp was no lower than 82 & today I added some small plants to hang over him, so the humidity has been between 80-87. This is totally off subject, but I had to take Thor (his/her name) to the vet Monday & he has URI. They gave him 2 shots, one was an...

    It’s my first time posting, I finally created an account since I’ve received great advice from so many forum topics here. Moving on :) I have a tortoise house, it’s 2x3 ft. and is 12 inches tall. I am having a hard time maintaining an overall temp above 80°. His basking area is about 90° At...
