    Hello everyone. I am very sad to say that I am putting my 8 year old redfoot tortoise, Shelly. She has been my bud since I was 12 years old. I am so sad to see her go, but she needs to thrive in an outdoor enclosure. I can't provide her that anymore. I'm not asking for any money, just a great...

    Sad day

    Hello. I am sad to say that I am thinking of giving up my beloved tortoise, Shelly. She was my first tortoise that I adopted when I was only 12 :( I am so busy with school right now, so she's always indoors. She is so unhappy and unhealthy living in an indoor cage all the time. I really want to...

    Hello everyone! I finally put my love of sewing to good use! This is non-tort related, but I recently opened a new etsy store called HappyHedgies. Since I just opened yesterday, it doesn't have too much in it yet, but I'm making things all the time to add. I sell cuddle cups and snuggle sacks...

    Picky tortoise

    Hello. My red foot has been picking at her food lately. She tends to only eat the mushy textured food, like bananas and wet pellet food (mazuri and another kind). She also likes rose petals.

    Squishy carapace

    This is urgent. I have just realized that my year old tortoise has a squishy carapace. I applied a small amount of pressure and it moved. It is still very squishy. Her gualars move if I gently squeeze her shell as well. Is this normal? Will she be alright? Thanks.

    Safe plants?

    Hello everyone. I bought a few new plants. However, I'm not sure they are safe for my red foot. I bought them from home depot, which means there are pesticides in them. Will they affect her if I feed her the leaves of the plant? I bought a hibiscus, some sort of ivy, and a succulent. Here are...

    Tortoise yard update

    Hello fellow tort lovers. I have finally convinced my family to let my tortoises take over the yard (hehe :D). I have just started it, and they will have a pen with a roof for rainy days. My yard is pretty large, so they have plenty of space. There is a small pond, which is the third pic, but...
