    The Tortoise Chef

    OMGosh!!! Alice has not stopped eating all day...but now she is laying on her piglet heating pad in her horse tank. That's a good thing. She will sleep until the morning.. My local farmer only makes gigantic bales. My hubby says they are 1800 pounds...I don't think I can do that... NOW, maybe...

    The Tortoise Chef

    So I try this every spring without success. I have tried to get Alice to eat orchard grass, dried and from local farmers freshly cut and dried and baled. She will have nothing to do with it. I have cut it in an small pieces, soak it and serve it wet and just moist. She actually opens her mouth...

    A few questions.

    So here is what they can do..... I used wire closet shelving.. used it upside down with the lip toward the chain link fence and then a piece of plywood so my sully could not see out the fence. This is what she did at 60 pounds. She actually bent the stronger edges of the shelf. I am with...

    aloe vera

    I feed my sully, who is 80 pounds, a chunk a day. I do not take any chances and go through the trouble of peeling and soaking with rinsing about 3 times. I store it in a plastic container in fridge for the week, rinsing every few days. In this picture I cut it into thirds, to show you how much I...

    Help we are going on a long 9 hr drive

    I have complained about this before. Enough said...except it doesn't speak well to this wonderful place. d Disagreeing is one thing but to go back and forth on and on is another thing. Maybe I am more sensitive about this and I am sorry if I am....It kept me away when I first got here...

    Doesnt want soaks?

    I got Alice when she was 5 years old. She absolutely hated water. She goes into my shower once in a while but is never happy. I put her on a couple of large towels in her own room and keep a spray bottle of water near her heat element so it stays warm. Every day I give her a little spray down...

    Spitting match!!! This is why you loose people.. Where there is a will, there is a way. This place is for helping not intimidating people. One should know to keep any of these animals, you need to have a little extra money. Someone can hire a professional or there are plenty of items to keep...
