    In crisis my tortoise is dying please help

    I'm sorry 😢 But please do stay hooked up with us so that you can help others. It's always good to have others' support and consolation. We can only hope that before others get any tortoise, especially little hatchlings, they do research first but that's not generally the case. Like me I...

    Please listen to Karen and Tom! If you look around this tortoise forum you will see for yourself they have been support and education for a very long time to all of us. You can't go wrong if you listen to them.

    Sulcata scute lifted up

    Poor thing! 😢 Is he going to have to live this way his whole life? I made mine a beautiful yard and a wonderful habitat. Seeing this way of life just makes me so angry.

    Deciding to get a baby Sulcata!

    That is exactly what I used to buy. For the past 4 years I went looking for it. No matter what the season or time of year, they didn't carry it anymore. I ended up buying it online. Violanna, you might ask Tom about your box plans. The doors on the top unless you do something really...

    Deciding to get a baby Sulcata!

    I got the Cypress Mulch from Home Depot, but that was 6 years ago. I can't find it anymore. I'm glad I bought 6 huge bags way back then. I was real glad when we moved him outside because I was running low on it. I would order my sphagnum moss from Amazon, it was green and for Galapagos...

    Deciding to get a baby Sulcata!

    Again I learned all of this by reading what Tom, Yvonne, Mark would write. There are others out there too, that have good ideas. Tom has been a godsend. Listen to them, they care about you and your tortoise. You will be the best Vet Tech out there if you do. Good luck!

    Deciding to get a baby Sulcata!

    Violanna, I forgot to mention too that the sealed inside habitat had a uv light, the CHE heat and a small regular bulb (that put off light and some heat, not much). I didn't want to burn his little shell. I surely didn't get as hot as those blasted heat lamps the pet store tell you to buy and...

    Deciding to get a baby Sulcata!

    I never had a tortoise before I got mine and then it was a sulcata. I did every thing wrong the first 2 months I had him. It was then that I found this forum and changed EVERYTHING. My husband and I immediately made a 2X4ft. SEALED enclosure. I put a window with a caulking in the front so he...

    Folks just like me don't discover this website until AFTER they buy them.

    I'm afraid so many will be abandoned and just let go to fend for themselves. I think that is already happening. It's very sad 😥

    Yes and my husband. My tort started weighing too much for me so my husband is there when I need him. It was soak day. My tort turned 6 years in Sept. I was one of those that didn't know any better. I live in a small town, my son had just flown the coup, my husband and I were out for a ride...

    Listening and watching, yes. I have asked a few questions and got great answers. I don't have much to offer, so it was best to read and learn as I went on.

    I was thinking maybe she was trying to find a mate. I have a lot to learn. But you all are teaching me!

    Maybe that's why she is acting "onry".

    Maggie, do female tortoises go into "heat" like mammals do? I hope my question doesn't scandalize anyone.
