    Interrupting Nesting

    Hello everyone! Haven’t posted in here in quite a while but I’m in need of some advice! My older red foot tortoise (approximately 15) started nesting today. I haven’t seen her nesting recently so it may just be a test spot. What I’m concerned about is she’s still in her outdoor pen nesting and...

    Happy Birthday Nova!

    So it has been exactly one year since I got my lovely Nova when I first got her she was just under 6in and now she is just under 6.5in! She has also grown from 530g to 673g!

    Nova's Temporary Outdoor Enclosure

    Until I complete Nova's full outdoor enclosure I through together a simple one because I had a feeling she was getting all depressed in her cage because she didn't spend as much time as she would like outside. I will still bring her in at night because it doesn't have a top but for the day time...

    Hatchling Fever

    So for about a month now I have been thinking of the possibility of getting another tortoise. More recently I have been thinking of getting a hatchling because I want to watch it grow. I was thinking of a redfoot of course but I have also been pondering the possibility to maybe get a leopard...

    Finally Found Myself A Florida Gopher Tortoise!

    I have been looking nonstop for a wild Gopher Tortoise to take pictures of. I marked burrows and would go out weekly to see if I could catch any action. Sadly I never saw one until I unexpectantly came across one on Easter Day. (Be prepared to read a little bit because it's now story time) I was...

    Toxic Plants

    I was wondering why we all are so worried about our tortoises getting into toxic plants. Of course I know we wouldn't expose them on purpose but what if there happens to be a plant that is good for them. Of course we would think that we have to rip them out but don't tortoises in the wild...

    Every time a clean out Nova's water and refresh it she goes and soaks in it but once she is done she starts digging right next to it and makes the water all muddy!! She sleeps there for a while and then moves back to her regular spot. Is she just being a rebel or is there some logic behind this...
