    Aldabra Care Sheet

    Yeah and aldabra's are truly hard to keep in a 'secure' enclosure. If a sulcata can break down cinder blocks and picket fence, imagine the damage of an aldabra. I know that I don't have as much expertise as most of the members here, but if you do get an Aldabra I think you'd be in for more than...

    Some help please

    Hello, sad to say but i think Kevlar may have septicemia... I'm not certain however the carapace of his shell had been turning a faded reddish pink. His plastron is fine, shell is hard, he's even passing waste. He has been sleeping a lot more and drinking a lot more though. I know what's best is...

    Growing with Calci-sand

    Can you grow pants in calci-sand, because if grass or chicory is grown on the sand... it SHOULD have a good calcium content in them, right? Or are you better off with regular dirt I heard chicory is a very absorbant plant when it comes to nutrients, etc. Like how its high in calcium, and...
