    What Gender?

    Does anybody know any signs of telling the difference between a male or female? Because I just got a new baby Russian that we got 4 days ago and he/she is about 6-10 months old. Can anybody help me I want to use one gender instead of just the antecedent(name) we picked for them “Sonoma”

    Is this normal behavior? (Baby sulcata)

    hey everyone, I have my baby for about a month now. He (assuming its a he) is still a literal baby. Normally once I turn out the lights at night he just goes to sleep, however tonight I noticed he was kinda just sitting there. He wasn't sleeping because his eyes were open but he wasn't moving...

    Can my tortoise be away from home?

    Hi, I have a 1 year old leopard tortoise, I go back and forth between my mom and my dads house and I recently set up a second enclosure for him at my dads. Initially, he lived at my moms in a 20 gallon tank, and I gave him the exact same set up at my dads. I’ve heard that with some turtles and...

    Closed eye

    Hello everyone! I am not so sure what’s going on I noticed my tortoise has one eye more closed than the other at times. It’s not always sometimes they’re both wide open. I don’t know if that’s normal so I was hoping to get some advice or help. Thank you!

    Extra scute questions

    I noticed a extra scute on the rear end of my tort. Is this just cosmetic or could it lead to problems in the future since it’s located above his hind leg? I wasn’t made aware of this when ordering him but I don’t mind, I just want to make sure it won’t be a issue in the future. I was also...

    Update on Peggy :)

    After taking Peggy to the vets today they have said that she could possibly have an infection. But there’s still hope! She is being given antibiotics and we’re giving her special food. Things are definitely looking up and I just want to say thank you everyone for all your advice.

    Help please. (not eating)

    I got my russian tortoise this week, one year old approx. He’s been hiding quite a bit which I guessed was because he was getting used to his environment and he was eating fine. I have been giving him daily soaks to keep him hydrated. He would usually eat when I put him in front of food,wander...

    Meet Panzer, the Sulcata Tortoise!

    I've been on the forum for a few months now and thought it to be high time that I introduce my little one. As s/he's so young, I don't know and won't know the gender for a long time, so for the purpose of making life simple in typing, I'm going to use the gender-neutral "he" until I know...

    Bigger baby tortoise can = bigger adult?

    Aside from the size as a baby, are there any differences between a big baby tortoise and a small one? Do bigger babies tend to be healthier or be bigger adults (assuming good and equal husbandry and diet) than what a small baby would become as an adult? Is it just better to buy a big baby than a...
