    my new double dapple mini weenie!

    A double dapple is when you breed two dapples together. It is not recommended because of health issues. "Double dapple is the result of both the mother and the father dog giving the pup a dapple gene. For example, the father dog gives the pup the gene first and dapples his back legs and tail...

    What's the significance of your tortoise(s)'s name(s)?

    My first sully I named "her" Nalla from the Lion King because I was going to get a male and name him Simba (some adult shells reminded me of the ring of fur on their neck). Well Nalla died two weeks later. However, I got another one and named him Tonka (like Tonka trucks) because I knew I wanted...

    Tonka (my bigger one) looooves to make a mess. Anytime I make the enclosure all nice and neat, the first thing he does is make a mess. I put moss in their humid hide and the first thing he did was dragged it across the table. Yesterday I put some hay in there for them to eat, and what does he...

    Question on Pyramiding

    Unfortunately at this time I am not able to permanently separate the two, but I am trying to feed them separately. However, when I take the smaller one out the feed he doesn't want to some times. But whenever I put food in its enclosure it will race to the bowl like a typically tortoise would...

    Question on Pyramiding

    True, thanks![hr] That does make sense. and I have to say, I think I might actually agree. Lol. Well at least for my situation. My torts were not from the same breeders, so that is a very good opinion I must say :) Thanks.

    Question on Pyramiding

    So I had asked Tom this: I have two Sulcata's, both a little over 2 years old. However, the older one is slightly bigger with a smooth shell and the other is smaller with a little pyramiding. I got them 2 months apart when they were both 2 months old. Making my oldest 2 months older (if that...

    Feeder fish for my RES crew

    I used to have RES and I would buy several dozen of the feeder fish as well. What kind are you buying? Rosies or regular gold fish? Mine preferred regular gold fish because there is more meat on them. Although they would eat the rosies they weren't big fans. Another factor can be the size of...
