I think they are like comparing human children growth, you can't really compare.
My Sheldon at 2 3/4 inches was 68 grams. A little heavy than yours, however at
5 inches he weighed 457 grams, a little less than yours.
He is now 7 yrs old, 7 inches long & 4.2 lbs. And currently has...
I found it. By looking at the leaves it reminded me of variegated ginger without so much of the yellow on the leaves.
It is a Hawaiian red ginger plant. Can't find it on Tortoise table though.
Could always put it some place else in the yard.
Thanks Maro2bear for your response.
That thought had occurred to me, my childhood home had a bottle brush tree in the front yard.
But this plant holds the red part upward, not dangling downward like I'm used to seeing with a bottlebrush tree.
That was why some kind of bromeliad came to mind.....
I saw this plant in some landscaping at an outdoor eating restaurant a few days ago.
I have some landscaping to do in the future for Sheldon's enclosure & I am hoping it would be suitable.
But I don't know what it is. Can someone please ID ?
It's the plant with the red on the top. It...
Hello, I can understand you being a concerned tort momma. I have never experienced any health issues with my Sheldon so in that regard you describing blowing liquid out his nose sounded alarming.
Traveling can be rough, maybe somehow you can hide a wet sponge someplace in his travel carrier so...
Sheldon, loves to soak, has lots of personality. Saved his life twice, has bad tendency of trying to eat mulch. The last time i gently pulled out a piece from his mouth that was twice as long as his neck was wide. Not cool. That's his bad habit.
Feed him lots of variety foods. Favorite foods...
Yes, you are right. Better safe than sorry. We have all sorts of wildlife around and Sheldons outside cage looks like Alcatraz!
That is my nickname for it. I too am preparing for a larger area and the house is getting painted, so I am waiting.
Maybe your area could have a several wire tops...
Hey there, Wow - we have the same thing here. :eek:
I can look over my fence and see them along the waters edge of the canal in their burrows.
The holes are in the coral rock wall.
Not cool, they love the pool, damage the patio, etc. They are a non-native species nuisance.
Sheldon loves tomatoes. But we don't have them frequently.
I cant imagine them having more sugar than a banana, grapes or blueberries.
He gets those fruits more often & eats fruits once a day. I use it as a topping for his baby spring mix.
He is a good eater. He never just eats the fruit and...
Your poor little guy ! Sounds like you are managing his condition well. How did you obtain the healthy donor poo before ?
Do you have a donor redfoot in your care ? I guess you would have to be careful not to transmit the protozoa to the healthy tort ?
Sorry so many questions....
Gotta have that baby talk ! 😀
That's how my Sheldon knows I love him and he is special. Or else he would just be any other tortoise in a ditch outside or something. Pampered guy, sure why not !
He is my pet.
He's smart in his own tortoise way.
It's not like I sing the ABC song expecting him to...
Yes, sometimes you have to walk away from the conversation.
Everyone is an expert at their opinion.
And life gets better when you don't care what other people think.
There will always be conflict, find your own peace.😀
