    True tortoise friends…awesome video

    I don't know if this is going to work because I copied and pasted from my facebook, I really hope you all can see it because it's evidence that Tortoises are a lot smarter than what people give them credit for…..They're also as amazing and sweet as most of us here already know them to be, but...

    Hello everyoneeeee!!!! All three of my sulcatas have gone from eating like pigs to not leaving their pen for nothing in the world, NOT EVEN TO EAT and they're starting to worry me, I even put their food closer to their doors so that they can just eat and go back into their nice warm and cozy...

    Do they always hibernate?

    Why aren't any of my box turtles hibernating. I live in Louisiana so it's not extremely cold yet but it's cold enough for them to start doing what they do isn't it? Should I take them inside every night since they're not protecting themselves from the cold?

    I absolutely love and cherish my torts and turts, I even have one that is not mine who I can stare at for hours while he's zooming around in my back yard but my herd doesn't feel complete.....I believe from the very bottom of my soul that I was meant to have a Leopard tortoise. Lol :)

    Just theoretically dreaming...

    I know the subject on hybrids is as controversial as same sex marriages but I was wondering what hybrid do you all think would be an interesting mix??? I personally think I would theoretically love to see a 1/2 Chaco 1/2 leopard hybrid. PS: I personally thinks its best to avoid hybrids so its...

    I thought there was no way 2 males could be in the same enclosure

    I met a gentleman yesterday who swears his two adult male sulcatas get along just fine in the same enclosure with one female and the enclosure is only 1/4 of an acre......First of all I thought that was impossible since sulcatas males are territorial plus to have just one female for both of them...
