So I’ve been feeding my tortoise store bought dandelions and weeds from my back yard (see photo). But I’ve seen a lot of threads saying to feed them grass, but Leo won’t eat grass, hay, or anything like that. Is this okay? I also want to add that he chews on tiles a lot, is this mineral deficienc?
My tort will wake up up, eat, maybe drink, then go back in his hide and sleep. Is this okay? Are my lights to strong? I have a 5.0 uvb bulb (the long ones) and I can’t tell what kind of bulb, but here’s a picture
I know this sounds silly, but can tortoises hear the same things as humans? Cause sometimes when I give mine a soak I’ll play the piano for him. He’ll walk to the side closest to the piano and sit there listening as I play.
My baby leopard tort seems to like rocks. Whenever I take him out, he tries to eat small pebbles and scrapes his beak on the stone pathway (it’s kinda rugged). Is this normal, or should I do something about it?
He has some light patches inbetween scutes on his shell. Also a little on the plastron. Is this a problem?This may be irrelevant but he also spends most of his time under his log and when I take him outside, he runs into the shade.
