    Hi everyone. I have a yearling Marginated tortoise that I got August 2020 when it was a hatchling. I did a lot of research before acquiring him and believe I've built a very good temporary indoor encloser for him(until it's big enough to live outside). Seems very healthy and active. For the...

    Wellness check?

    Hey all, Baby Ez and I have made it a week! Or we will at 5:30pm. I just want to make sure my tort-keeping skills are up to snuff. My temperatures are looking good now at an ambient of 75-82F and 95+F directly under the lamp (but he rarely is right underneath). He digs into his coco coir or...

    Planning ahead- is this safe?

    Hello! Ez and I made it a week! I know this is incredibly early, seeing as how it's still winter up here in Canada, but I'm wondering if the plants which grow naturally in my yard are safe for a redfoot tortoise.
