    UVB winter usage

    For those of us with forest tortoises in cold climates, i.e. Forstenii, Manouria, etc., I am trying to get an idea of how many people use UVB during the winter when they are indoors, and how many just supplement. I know this has been debated a lot so I am not trying to start a debate.

    Two newest additions

    These two little guys arrived this morning from Turtles and Tortoise Inc. They are an unrelated temperature sexed 1.1 pair of 2015 mee's. Already munching on colocacia and very active.

    Manouria updates

    It's been quiet on the Manouria sub forum lately. How are everyone's mountain tortoises doing? I just purchased another hopeful 1.1 pair of 2015 mee's from Jay Fruer. The tentative shipping date is the week of the 15th. My newest pair is doing very well and get along perfectly.

    Manouria breeding age

    I was wondering how old Mee's have to be before you can get fertile ova. I've read that they can lay at about 6 years of age, but the eggs won't be fertile until they are about 12 years old. Is it possible that CB healthy females can produce viable ova at a younger age as opposed to WC? Any...
