    Another Effective Night Box

    @Tom Have a quick question in regards to all the flat lids of these tortoise night boxes I’ve been seeing. When it rains, doesn’t the rain water just sit and puddle up on the flat surface lid? Wouldn’t the roof top of a tortoise box be better with it being sloped like a roof of a house, so that...

    Does my Sulcata Tortoise have MBD?

    Hey Tom, Thanks for the response. Much appreciated. With the CHE, I got it rigged up inside the sleeping area, not on the outside, it sits right underneath the lid. So I’m able to keep that humidity up in his sleeping area as well. However, on the other not as much as I would like. The wire top...

    One other quick question. Are the dimples or dents that he has on each side of his shell from the rear a normal thing?

    Does my Sulcata Tortoise have MBD?

    Yes, funny that you mention that about the UVB light. I just replaced it. I actually got it last year July 23 and I know on the box it says to replace once a year, however reading on the tortoise forum it said to switch from 6-9 months. That’s why I it, upon reading the thread. I am in the...

    Using UVB fluorescent light with Calcium powder w D3

    Sounds like a plan. Right now I have my 4 month old Sulcata in a Zoo Med tortoise house. So is it okay just to put the whole tortoise house in direct sunlight? I’m assuming so right? Since the house has its own built-in hide to get shade if my hatchling needs it.

    Using UVB fluorescent light with Calcium powder w D3
