    Snaggle toothed tort

    A couple of weeks ago I posted photos about Master and his fangs. He broke a couple off in a zucchini and this is the one that is left. I'm wondering if he is hiding them in his tort cave?

    Your First Tort

    Daughter A was working in a pet store. Daughter B got a fantastic new pet for Christmas from Daughter A! The little guy was a perfect apartment pet. Quiet, didn't bark, wasn't on the banned pet lease list... And then "Master" began to grow. And grow... then grow some more. He grew to...

    Return to wild?

    The more tort's you buy, the more they will bread to keep selling to you. Then the price will go up. One day you decide to disengage from your release program, while tort production is at an all time high- Now what?

    Hellllp (sulcata small for age??)

    Cute little guy... put a nice pile of sticks and twigs and such out there. You will find he loves to hide in there and it gives him a little more shade.

    Stupid questions

    I put Master in a large tub and throw a couple of towels over him. He loves that, stays put and get's a little peeved at me when I take the towels off.

    Warning for young sulcata owners

    Master has a couple inches of sand on the floor of his condo which he digs and moves back and forth before settling in for the night. This seems to satisfy his digging desires as he no longer digs up the yard.

    Tortoise teeth?

    Master get's zucchini on a regular basis, and carrots, although he doesn't like the carrots as much. I think his favorite snack is Ivory soap. Yep, Ivory soap. We had a bar of soap in the back yard cleaning something. Turning our backs for just a second (just like a human child) he started...
