I have miss the forum. I have looked here and there but was not able to spend much time as school work for wild. With all “online” learning it’s hard to grasp some of the concepts and not able to ask professors and classmates face to face is really difficult.
Herbie seems to be doing...
My torts enclosure is made from plywood - it is not sealed as I know I will have to upgrade it before it even has a chance to be gross. However I would like to wipe it down with chlorhexidine solution (mixed with h2o), as I want to change his substrate to add more since he loved to dig.

Wanted to share with others, to help understand what can happen even when you think this would never happen.

My friends keep telling me “oh Herbie is getting big !”
Me: Hmmmhh he is gaining weight (we are almost at 60g), but I don’t see him bigger size wise.
Till I looked at the pictures and compared them 🤣😂🐢
Herbie straight out of the box
Look at all the new growth on his shell.
I am reading that there is Mazuri (called original one I guess) and there is the Mazuri LS.
I have the LS - it’s not main food for Herbie more so add on to his weeds.
Is there a difference between the two and does it impact directly tortoise health.
I see many discussions about the closed chamber enclosure, people having trouble keeping humidity in the right spot.
For everyone who is still questioning closed chamber enclosures, here is some data collected today in Herbie’s enclosure.
You can see the moment I opened his enclosure how fast...
I often see posts saying:
I can’t get grass for my tortoise .... grazing is not an option... I can’t grow grass for my tortoise... and so on.
I am blessed with a big house and a big yard etc. but I lived in a small apartment before with a dog, cat and a guinea pig.
Also now as soon as I put...
Since Herbie’s arrival he has been provided with a close chamber enclosure as recommended. He seemed super happy in his 32in long and 16in wide enclosure. However every time I looked at it I knew this is not something that he can thrive in.
After reading many, many posts over here, reviewing...
I found this link as I am researching safe to eat flowers etc.
Can you guys confirm this list adequate pretty please.
Also any other recommendations, links, greens, I am searching for all in the wild stuff not store and...
I have been looking for a solution to keep the baby Herbie in a nice humid and warm environment. I did not like the idea of closing the box with a lid and calling it good.
Since my little guy is getting bigger and I am adding upgrades to the actual indoor enclosure I found a...
I am keeping everything low in the enclosure that he spends most of the time in. In his mini outdoor enclosure my tortoise has a little obstacle course where he climbs up and down and pushed things around he seems to really like it. But to the point.
What if he rolls over on his back when, I am...
After the whole stress of getting the baby it arrived this morning. First thing I did nice warm water and the baby right in. Seemed sleepy and after about 30 min in the bath and the real sun - Bellevue, WA very warm and humid today - baby simply became a little devil 😈.
Stayed in a bath for...
