    Leo made 300g today! So proud of him. Amazing that such a lazy creature can survive. 😂 Hope he is ready for an adventure and his new home in 10 days. Nervous about sending him with cargo/courier service. Wish he could go in the plane with us.

    Hello! I have a redfoot tortoise, but she has some health issues.

    Look into those portable grow tents that were previously recommended.(on Amazon) Members here have had great success with them. And it’s safe and easy to hang lights and heaters. fir the substrate you need about 4-6 inches. Use a bucket or wheelbarrow, Mix in some water till it is damp(not...

    5.2 & a half Leopard Tortoises

    Oh I see. Yeah, clearly I know nothing about how big an adult leopard should be. 🤦🏼‍♂️ do you know how old it is? Maybe it’s not done growing yet...?

    Hello! I have a redfoot tortoise, but she has some health issues.

    You need more CHE’s at least 2 for that size enclosure maybe 3. And as previously mentioned you’ll never keep the correct temp with the top open. My opinion cardboard will not work. It will get moldy and deteriorate when humidity goes up. It could also be a fire hazard with CHE near by. try the...

    You call it a half Bc it’s neither male or female...? I’m confused. In any case looks like it had some MBD. I know it will be happy and heathy under your wonderful care.

    Help!! I think coco is sick! 😭😭😭

    Your coco coir substrate looks to dry. If that gauge is actuate than 41% humidity is too low. Try keeping it damp to reduce dust and increase humidity. You might also want to try a layer of orchid bark on top of the coco coir this would help keep the dust and the mess down so it doesn’t get in...

    Won't come out of his shell.

    It’s eyes and face look oddly dry and a little strange. Please soak the little guy in warm water everyday.

    Is the glass stressing my little guy out?

    You need to block off the bottom few inches of the glass so he cannot see threw it. He will always be pacing and trying to get out if he can see what’s on the other side.
