    She was not amused with my attempts to take pictures. She would not sit still. This photo actually looks like she’s starting to pyramid? It appears worse in the photo? Tortoise Buffet! Eating her greens!

    Making sure your tortoise is taken care of when you’re gone

    Its one of the reasons I keep history in a log book. I’ve also talked to my youngest son about taking on it’s care when I’m gone. Its part of being a responsible pet owner.

    Tortoise for adoption? I suggest you research the breeds and their requirements before you adopt. Feeding, housing and general care varies greatly depending on the species.

    Havent been around much since losing tapatalk but I thought I would drop by and update everyone on this little adopted tortoise. In July '19, this little tortoise weighed in at a whopping 26 grams. I was doing daily soaks and feeding greens, dandelions, romaine, green leaf and opuntia. Calcium...

    Holy this...

    This is a very good point and something that really helped my greek tortoise. In July '19 adopted a seven month old tortoise that wouldn't go in its water plate. A few months ago, I changed from outside container soaks to placing fresh, warm, water in the plate and placing the tortoise in that...

    Calathea lancifolia - Rattlesnake Plant - Is it tortoise safe?

    Does anyone know if this plant is safe for a tortoise to eat? There is a safe calathea in the tortoise table but its not this one. I considered putting it in my tortoise enclosure but I'm not sure if its safe should they decide to eat it. Literature says it's cat and dog safe but that's about it.

    When you open a thread, the "new posts" links is gone. You have no choice but to backspace and then press new posts again. I figured it out, you have to open each page and let it load than you can backspace and press new posts again to refresh the thread list. So in the case of Cold Dark Room...

    I do the same but when I read a thread and go back, it still shows the thread. It doesn’t automatically refresh?

    This was a step backward for this forum. More and more people are using web devices and shutting down access makes no sense. When I read the forums on my iPad with the app or Tapatalk it would show new threads and clear them as you read them. Using the web version it doesn’t clear threads so you...

    The web version on the iPad sucks. The threads don’t disappear after you read them so you have to scroll through all of them.

    Spineless opetunia with no glochidia?

    Lol, that’s why I asked. He sells three pounds for $20, which is fine. I’m just curious how many that is.
