    MBD?

    Update: Thank you to everyone who responded with advice, Tortellini’s appetite and energy is back in full force! He is back to being his explorative (and mildly cranky) self! :)

    MBD?

    He doesn’t really drag his legs so much, that was more a picture of him burrowing down, they are just turning a darker color and idk if that is normal. It doesn’t really seem like it would be

    MBD?

    I’ll look into the solarmeter, thanks for the tip. I did make sure to get the tube not the coil. I looked it up again on Amazon and it looks like I purchased it from Zilla not reptizoo. Probably for that reason

    MBD?

    I don’t have a heat pad, but I do have a basking rock for him under a basking bulb. He likes hanging out around that area

    MBD?

    That is extremely good to know I will switch his vitamins immediately. I use one of the tube lights I believe it was reptizoo brand. It’s been 6 months this month so I have a new one on order coming this week. The reddish brown dots are all his substrate, especially the red on top of his...

    His temperatures are high 80s low 90s. He hasn’t pooped much lately and that has really worried me.

    MBD?

    Hi guys, I have been having a really difficult time getting Tortellini to eat much lately, I’ve tried all kinds of different greens, and lettuce is really the only thing I can get him to eat (and only about half of what he used to eat at that). I did recently change up is diet quite a bit to...

    The Best Way To Raise Any Temperate Species Of Tortoise

    I have only had my tortoise a couple of days now. I keep my humidity right where you suggested and he has damp substrate and humid hide, but so far he hasn't touched his water dish. I also soak him for 15 minutes every day in warm water. What would you suggest trying to get him to use his water...

    Burrowing!

    Hello! I just got my cute baby russian tortoise today, he started burrowing which I know is normal but is it normal for them to burrow head first? He dug a little hole halfway under one of his rocks. Is that a normal thing to do or should I move him?

    Newbie Heating Help

    Here is a picture of the lamp over the rock. It will be a hatchling, and the enclosure is not near a window at all. It isn't near a vent either. I'm wondering if it's maybe because I have too light of a rock, maybe I need something darker? Luckily, I haven't received the hatchling yet, I'm just...

    Newbie Heating Help

    Hello! I'm here to ask another newbie question! I am getting a baby Russian tortoise, and I am really struggling to keep the heating where it needs to be. I am using a 50 gallon tank, and for the daytime basking spot I am using a 75 W house bulb. I can't get the basking rock higher than 83-85...

    Coconut Fiber Help

    Hello! I recently bought the expandable coconut fiber substrate. As I went to wring out the water after soaking it for a while, I noticed white bubbles forming in the water, almost like soap? I didn't use ANY soap whatsoever, so I know it's coming from the substrate itself. is this normal? This...
