    I have just changed the substrate in my tortoises enclosure to a mixture of cypress mulch and some coconut terrain! I just came into my room to check on Tiddles and he was no where to be seen, I was panicking and didn’t understand where he could be. There was no way he had escaped, and then I...

    Bath time

    So after you bathe your tortoise how do you guys dry them? Because if I put him back in his tortoise table he will just get muddy again! And if I try dry him He keeps walking away so I have to pick him up again or he’ll walk off the table and he obviously doesn’t like that so is there a better way?!
