    So i have a mud turtle and he lives inside in his aquarium and I have a UVB and heat bulb for him so I decided to bring the tortoises in for a little while to soak inside and I used the turtles heat and UVB bulb for the tortoises so it is like sunshine. Will that be enough to keep them warm and...

    But I am kind of worried about them is there anything I can do to keep them warm in the mean time? Does it help that they have something to borrow in to? Becuse they have a really big hay pile.

    Yes I understand entirely I just have been very busy and will read the link you gave me soon. My tortoises seem to be eating fine and drinking fine they act normal so I don't think they are sick. But i will do everything I can to make them warm in the meantime.

    In the link you gave me it said that adult tortoises can tolerate temperatures in the low 50's and 60's and right now the lowest temperature it is supposed to be is 55f so my tortoises should be fine. Right? Becuse they are almost adults.

    Really? I have never heard of that! Ok well I will do the best I can right now to get them warm. I just hope they will be ok for a little while until I get the night box. Is there anything else I can do in the mean time?

    I do not currently have an indoor encloser I used to have one but broke and they do not have a night box but they do have a Terra cotta pot with nesting hay in it and a whole different big pile of nesting hay where they sleep at night.

    Same here! I mean I kind of miss them when they are sleeping all the time or hiding. So is it bad for them if it is kind of cold and there isn't much sunlight for them? Will it make them sick or something?

    So have a quick question it has been kind of cold and cloudy like around 70-76f for like 2 days now and the tortoises have not been moving around almost at all they just stay in one place, sleep or hide underground. Is that normal behavior when it is a little cold and there isn't that much...

    Got it. On the hot day they did have plenty of shade not including three hiding places And they had a shallow water dish. I will try to post some pictures of the encloser I am building when it is close to getting done and will I consider separating the two tortoises but so far everything has...

    So far so good! The encloser I am building is coming together. I have not seen any bullying between my new tortoise and Sophie which is good.

    Though my best bet is to just make the male a separate encloser instead of rehoming him becuse I feel like I have a close bond with him he is just such a sweetheart!💗 As I am sure most of you here have special bonds with your tortoises to. I just love tortoises.😍

    I have started to make the 20 foot encloser for the tortoises. I will try to put some photos tomorrow. I figured since you said that my encloser was to small for Sophie I would give her an upgrade. The sooner the better. I am considering rehoming the male tortoise though becuse you said they...

    Another tortoise?+new tortoise owner tips

    Your right all of you I am sorry I just got really ahead of myself there and now I think i have made a mistake! I am sorry if I was rude to you I do make a lot of mistakes. I really don't know why I didn't listen to you. I would return the male tortoise but the breeder said there is no refund or...

    Would it help if I gave them the 20 foot extension to there encloser? Would that be big enough for them not to see each other that often?
