    @ Tom, Here's the current setup for 6mth baby Hermann... Please look at both water dishes. Do you recommend either - one is an "oasis" style that has fake "rock" to climb out. The other is just a basic corner dish with about 2" of water. Dimensions of enclosure are 36" x 20" x 18" High. It's...

    Where's the poop??!!!

    I'm concerned - where and when is my baby popping?? Beanz (6mth old Hermann) is active and eating well. He gets a soak daily. Enclosure has all the humidity and temps recommended by the forum. I feel like all my bases are covered. I've had him for 2 weeks. He has NEVER pooped during his soak...

    Russian Available - to the right home - near Atlanta

    I have a handsome Russian available for adoption. I will ONLY give him up to the right family. We've recently acquired another tort and Henry is having a tough time adjusting. I blame this on myself. After reading all the great posts and truly learning from this forum, I've come to realize I...

    Dalmatian Hermann pics...

    I don't always see a lot of Dalmatian Hermann pics out there. Here's a few pics of Beanz so you can get a better idea of what they look like - top to bottom. He's 6mos old. The fluorescent "button" on top of shell is breeder's mark and will fall off in couple months. I didn't want to pull it off.

    Baby Hermann - How active should they be?

    This is our first baby tort (about 4mos) - we've had him a little less than a week. He sleeps a lot - buries himself into substrate majority of time. I have to get him for feeding time. It takes him about 5 minutes to get "active"... I've been giving him regular daily baths, UVB and heat to 90...

    Baby Hermann - 6mos old - First Vet appt?

    I just got him this week from TortoiseSupply. We have an excellent reptile vet here who saw my adult Russian (I got him as an adult). But with this baby...when should I bring him to his first vet appt? He's eating, drinking and all seems well.

    Baby Tort - sharp nails

    I have a baby Hermann (about 6mos old). His nails are quite sharp. When should they be trimmed for first time? I'm assuming it's like any other animal, have to be careful not to cut back too much.
