I am re-do my landscaping and sadly to say that I have to part with my Sulcata pair. Female is about 18". Male 15"
(Just estimate only, will provide more details and pictures to interested parties. Male is super tame and will follow you around. They laid 6 clutches last year, about 90% hatched...
Thank you both for reply. Now I know the temperature dropped shouldn't harm them. How about the trauma of transferring them to the new incubator? I have to pick them up one by one to move them. Of course with the most diligent and careful not to rotate them.
I found my incubator was stopped working this morning. It seems like the fuse burnt out sometime last night. The temperature was about mid 70s when I found out about it. There are about 15 eggs and a few of them are piping.
I have no choice but have to transfer them to another incubator. The one...
I need all advices here.
My Sulcata pair have been breeding and so far she laid 6 clutches of average 20 eggs per clutch. Thank god (I hope) she is done for this year. I have 4 clutches hatched at average of 80-85%hatching rate. I incubate them at about 87F with about 80% humidity...
Hi Tom and everyone,
I am using Avitec incubator. It's look like a water cooler one. I actually got it for my baby birds.
Oops, I have been spraying directly since yesterday, oh well hope they are okay. I caught her when she just about to get done with laying so I didn't weight...
Yeap, she laid 16 eggs yesterday!! I am thrilled. The moment that I saw her dropped the first egg was unforgettable. This is the first time that I ever observed the whole egg laying thing. It was beautiful.
I did exactly what you recommended with the eggs. I have one question on...
Bruin, my female Sulcata started her odd behavier in the last couple days. Two days ago she dug a big hole right in the middle of the yard. She dug holes here and there in the past but always something right next to the wall. THis time is right in the middle of the yard. Then this morning, while...
Yes, I will make sure have another one built as soon as I think it need a bigger one.
I am so happy about them finally going in and out the house of their own. Bruin (female) especially love her corner. Once she got in, I will hear she moving around to snug into her favorite corner.
Thanks for all replies.
I don't think 3'x3' is too small for them (for now anyway). They can have their own separate corner. I have had another bigger one that was 4'x4' and it was the same problem. I have been physically moved them for about 3 weeks now. One good point though, I never...
I got a custom made dog/tort house for my torts. It is 3'x3' slant shingled roof with the 20"x20" opening with vinyl flap to kept outside element out. So far, I have to physically moved them from their burrow and stuck them in the house. If wet and cold out, they will slept until it warm...
Yes, I feel very lucky that the previous owner let me adopted her. Bruin is her name and she is very sweet girl.
Now, questions :-)
- Is it normal that she is going to bed at around 5 PM and she won't wake yp until 8 AM. Is that anything I should worry about?
- I know she is...
Thanks Yvonne for your guidance.[hr]
I just adopted her from a wonderful lady nearby. She broke her wrists and cant take care of this baby any more. She is very sweet tort and LOVE Hibiscus flowers. It just my curiosity to see if I should treat...
I am new into tort. I just adopted one a few days ago. Still learning about them. He or she is about 60 lbs, but I don't know is it a boy or a girl. I don't know how to post the picture on here. Can I email picture to somebody privately?
