    Ghost's vet appointment

    Took Ghost to the vet yesterday for his yearly checkup. They gave him vitamin and calcium injections (vet said they do that for all their Sulcata patients), and also did a fecal exam. They noticed pinworms and prescribed Panacur to be administered once every 2 weeks for 8 weeks. What is the best...

    Happy 3rd Birthday, Ghost!

    The pond / waterfall was his birthday gift. Nowhere near done with it yet, but he seems to be enjoying it nonetheless.

    M or F

    Ghost turns 3 next month and is a tad over 14". I'm really torn over whether it's a male or female. To me, the anal scutes could go either way. The plastron does have a slight, but noticeable, "concave-ness" to it. The tail seems a bit long to me to be a female. What do y'all think?

    How much does it cost to raise a healthy sulcata?

    I was pondering this question earlier today. Set aside the price you paid for your tort. How much would you say it takes on average to raise a sulcata (properly) from baby to say 5 years old? I'd be curious as to what kind of figures folks would post! My reason for asking is that I was...

    Need opinions on insulated door

    I was perusing Amazon and cam across this insulated door curtain. Anyone have an opinion on these? I am considering using them on my outside enclosure in lieu of the vinyl curtain strips I originally planned to use.

    Ghost attacked by dog

    Ghost was attacked by a stray dog yesterday out in my yard. I was standing maybe 6 feet or so away from him while he grazed. Dog came out of nowhere, made a B-line towards Ghost, picked him up, and carried him about 60 feet. Medium size dog, not sure what breed. When I finally caught up with...

    Injured baby snapper

    I found this snapping turtle on the sidewalk outside of my office. It appears that it might have been carried by a bird, then dropped. I picked it up and placed it in a shallow dish of water. It is moving around and breathing regularly. There is a deep injury to its back left leg that concerns...

    Burrowing question

    How likely would it be for a tortoise to try burrowing through 4+ inches of 1" - 2" river rock? I have one section outdoors that I would like to keep a bit more decorative.

    How to introduce Ghost to new outdoor enclosure

    Ghost is fast approaching the size where I feel comfortable leaving him outside during the day. Enclosure is 95% complete (pics soon to follow). How should I introduce him to his new home? All at once or slowly over time? Thanks in advance!

    T8 / fixture question

    We've all been instructed at some point on this forum not to place any obstructions (glass, screen, etc.) between the UVB source and the enclosure due to the UVB being filtered out by such obstructions. So I have a T8 setup similar to the one pictured below, and it donned on me that there is a...

    Concern over Ghost's weight

    Based on the tBMI formula (tBMI= cWTcm/tWTgr), I'm a little concerned with Ghost's weight and am looking for suggestions. His current diet consists of a variety/combination of greens including weeds, dandelion greens, bok choy, turnip and mustard greens, and escarole. I will throw in maybe 8-10...
