    I think Yoshi (RT) is ill? I'M WORRIED

    i have a couple of russian, had them about 6 years, I also have a couple of redfoots and one box turtle and one sulcata, who is very young and gentle thing so far :) one of my adopted russians was dragging on sick for a while and even with antibiotics he is still in a very slow recovery...

    rescue claims it is a sulcata!

    it was not adopted, it was removed from the site, something finally worked, most likely they were contacted by the CTTC and were forced to release the tortoise to them. thanks everyone:) mission accomplished :)

    Albino Sulcata VS Ivory

    ivory - light skinned but otherwise normal, albino - red eyes, white to pinkish skin, and just a note - it is very likely that she/he will be 80-100% blind, red eyes are incredibly sensitive to the light and the outdoor existence is painful to them ( light wise), keep that in mind:)

    I think Yoshi (RT) is ill? I'M WORRIED

    Wild strawberry leaves edible?

    my russian will nibble a bit but not a fan, as there are much tastier things around, but when comes the spring - they love the variety of wild grasses.

    Salmonella???

    why is this even a question? yes, of course you wash your hands after each contact, nt because of salmonella, but because it is a freaken common sense. they crawl through pee and poop and unless you want that in your mouth, yeah, wash your hands every time after handling anyone that is not...

    New tortoise owner, help please, red swollen sores

    have you seen the vet? I keep russians too, swollen eyes are USUALLY a sign of Respiratory infection, if he is not eating, it means it is pretty advanced, he will need antibiotics to survive. I do not claim to know what is wrong with your tortoise, but mine is currently in the hospital tank...

    Soak Water

    red foots are not fully herbivorous like sulcatas, they eat meat, eggs, bugs. I am not saying it was the TORTOISE poo per se. I am saying the poo came from the meat eater (redfoot that is a foot long, so it was a big log, lol, pardon my french). maybe something colonized it meanwhile. the vet...
