    Is my RT sick due to being dehydrated ?

    The bowl I used was just a normal reptile bowl that I bought from Petsmart a long time ago. I usually dont use it but I believe the bowl was too deep and he climbed in there. As I stated before, I 99% of the time use a slate, but that day I switched it out for some reason. And to clarify, it was...

    Is my RT sick due to being dehydrated ?

    Hi, A couple days ago, I found my tort got stuck in his food bowl ( I usually use a slate but that day I didn't. ) I left that day to do some things away from the house and he apparently climbed into his food bowl for some reason ( which is under the basking lamp side / hot spot ) and could not...

    I never meant to be rude or hurtful. I never cussed or sweared, but the OP never described the set up until later. Its not that serious. The OP decided to not listen to other's advice. I am not the only one who agree with this. Pipe down.

    Im saying u don't need a $700 enclosure. You can build one or buy one for much cheaper. Just move him inside. that's all

    But people have given you professional advice and you're not taking it. And you're the one that is cussing out everyone and being very disrespectful.

    Woooooowwww. I feel really bad for your tortoise. It breaks my heart that his owner is not going to protect him and take care of his needs. You are literally more concerned about having followers than your own tortoise's wellbeing. As much as I hate to say it, don't come crying when he dies...

    And if you don't, he will die. He has a long life ahead of him, but not with this kind of care.

    If you truly cared about your tortoise, then you would at least give this a try. You don't have to buy some expensive enclosure. You can make it. By what you are saying / posting, you are implying that you know more about tortoises then me and everyone on this forum. I stand by what I said. If...

    But we are talking about ur situation. Yes it is different where I live, but I'm not talking about that. And wherever u live, whether it's in Florida, Asia, or Antartica for all I care, you SHOULD NOT house a baby outside. Doesn't matter if they are enclosed. We aren't here to bash you. We only...

    Please try not to swear. I am only trying to help. I was following your posts, and I am not judging you at all. Yes. He is exposed to predators while he is a baby. Babies are preyed apon by other animals, specifically birds. When he is older and bigger, then he can be live outside. When torts...

    Its not just about the temp. There are multiple factors that go into it. Babies need to have specific needs, and if they are not met then they will get sick and can easily die. You can not rely on the weather and the sun to make sure he is okay. Not to mention predators.

    If you are not going to take proper care of your tortoise, give him to an experienced owner who will take proper care of him. He deserves better than that. U admitted you've never had a tortoise before. What makes you think you are more knowledgeable then breeders and owners who have had...

    What Gender?

    alright could you send pics of your new tort?

    Is me again.

    Ok so I've been following the original posts that you sent, and you aren't seeming to take the members advice on keeping him indoors. Please listen to these people, who are expert tortoise owners. We want the best for your tortoise, and if it is not corrected he can, and will, die.

    Somebody come get these poor babies!!!

    I found this guy on craigslist who is selling baby sulcata torts. The way he is housing them is inhumane. No uvb, no heat lamp, they are literally in bins on top of one another. I would go and get them but I just moved. He is located in San Jose, California. . I'm not in the Bay Area anymore so...
