    Hey, Pearly!

    Thank you Yvonne! I have to figure out how to use this site. I used to always use TFO app on my iphone. It’s very different now and I’m getting some silly advertisements all the time.

    I am so sorry you had such bad experience. I had a rough start as well but found TFO early on enough that over very short period of time corrected all of my tort environment mistakes. It is absolutely imperative to cover the top of your enclosure, otherwise there is no way to keep the...

    Pearly’s RF -not „Babies” anymore! in 2019

    I meant „incubated”, ofcourse. And yes, I did follow your Tortoise Library care sheets for RF. Heck, they were my „tort bible” the first year or so. Thank you for sharing your expertise with all of us amateur hobby keepers. It’s important to me to know that what I do for my shelled babies is...
