I don't know if this person is an idiot or joking, but either way, it looks like someone glued some fabric to this Russian tortoise.
Not my listing. A hatchling yellow footed is missing in Toronto. "got out or taken from out door inclosure". If anyone sees it up for sale or their kids 'found...
This is probably a long shot, but if anyone, at any point in the future, has elongated tortoises in Canada to part with, send me a message as I'm interested in buying (preferably females, but open to males and unsexed).
Day and night, highs and lows, what temperatures are you keeping your Indotestudos in?
The Tortoise Trust says for elongata:
"Daytime environmental temperature should be maintained in the 26 - 30°C region during summer (78 - 86 °F). In winter, daytime temperatures can be reduced to 24 °C (75...
Good prices for Canada. Don't know the seller but I suspect I've seen their babies.
Not my ad. Hingebacks aren't too common in Canada so I hope it goes to someone well equipped for their care. I wish I had room for hingebacks right now.
In case any Canadians were swinging by today, I can tell you the rundown of what was there yesterday. Apologies, I didn't take any vendor photos.
Sellers were mostly catering to ball python collectors, like most reptile shows. The were decent numbers of other snake species, as well as...
Anyone else getting a "free iPad"/prize giveaway spam pop up while viewing TFO today? It keeps popping up for me here (I'm using safari and iOS) and this seems to be the only website I am seeing it on. Just me?
There just aren't enough photos of Indotestudo tortoises here, so I thought I'd try to start a photo thread by posting one of my elongata. He may not have the prettiest shell, but he's got that charming yellow-pink face that can't be beat.
@Tom had an amazing thread back in 2012 where he showed an underground sublayer in a hatching Sulcata habitat: http://www.tortoiseforum.org/threads/indoor-underground-housing.39146/
Have people been trying this since? This seems like a brilliant idea and I want to build one of these - I wonder...
You rarely see any species being resold this cheaply here, so I imagine it'll go fast.
I've seen them recommended for hermit crabs (to eat and 'play' in), but I was wondering if anyone knew of any safety concerns about adding Catappa leaves (the dried kind typically sold for aquariums) into a tortoise enclosure. They seemed like they might make a nice leaf litter, especially for...
Not my ad, but someone is selling two brown mountain tortoises for $1800. Given that I have never actually crossed paths with a Manouria emys emys in Canada, I would say that...
Not my listing: http://www.kijiji.ca/v-other-pets/markham-york-region/tortoise-for-sale/1073178161?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true
But $300 is an excellent price for a leopard tortoise in Canada. Comes with an unfortunate tank for a tortoise.
Not my ad, but hopefully the original owner is on here since it looks well cared for. If anyone knows someone in Vaughan, Ontario that has lost their sulcata, get in...
Anyone used Epiweb http://www.epiweb.se/introduction.htm (as an alternative to tree fern panels) in an indoor enclosure? I'm looking for a good backdrop material I can grow epiphytes on, and it sounds pretty good, but I can't find any North American distributors. Anyone used it? Anyone know who...
In thinking about plantings for my work-in-progress footed habitat, I am wondering how much of their native habitats can we realistically - safely - create.
The Vinkes and Vetters provide a great list of native plant species that footed tortoise eat fruit/flowers from in their 'diet' chapter...
