    Large juvenile cherryhead - Wilmington NC/Myrtle Beach area

    Relocating and concerned for my red foot's welfare. I would prefer this tortoise stay in the Southeast/coastal/humid region. I can deliver, depending on distance. No shipping. They are chunky, but still able to fully tuck up. Born July 2019. From top of the shell to the bottom, they are about...

    A little bit of silliness

    This gave me a chuckle and I wanted to share it with my fellow tortoise nerds.

    Have plastic Christmas tree totes gone extinct?

    This is the third year that I've kept my eyes out for one of these magical plastic bins of enormous size, but I've still yet to see one. I'm not sad to see less plastic in the world, but they still make bins that are twenty feet tall instead of long 😄

    Got to say hi to the janitors this morning :)

    Sometimes I’ll see a worm tunnel, and the springtails are annoyingly bold, but it always cheers me up when I get to see the shy little rolies! (Dwarf tropical isopods) Hopefully they clear off the food slate before the dinosaur wakes up 😆

    My dirty boy is growing up!

    Carbo has really started to marble! He’s not too happy with my photo shenanigans. I’m sure he wants me throw him a shrimp, go back to work, and leave him alone 😆

    The perks of living in the Southeast

    I'll be joining camp Redfoot soon! I have a 40B to start a hatchling, and we custom cut some polycarbonate panels to cover the mesh around the light bar/CHE. Four days ago, I added moist soil and orchid bark to the setup. No heat or lights on right now, I'm still waiting on plants to come in...

    Raleigh Repticon

    Yeah, another Repticon thread, but this one is because I’m still unclear on whether NC expo’s are allowed to sell torts or turtles yet. The vendor page said no, but a friend told me that she’s seen tortoises at the Raleigh Repticon earlier in the year (as well as other restricted species)...

    Is blue-green algae bloom toxic to turtles?

    Several pets in the area have died from the bacterial bloom this summer and I'm kind of worried about my pals out at the pond. I couldn't find much information about it being toxic to freshwater animals, but one article suggested that it can kill sea turtles. Here's two of the mud-butts...

    New here! Still in research phase

    Hello! I've been lurking for a bit but decided it was time to join. More and more I've become interested in having a tort and I think I'm finally going to take the first step and start working on a table for one. One thing I do to relax is bring veggies and mealworms to the turtles at a nearby...
