    Male Russian and Female Sulcata needing rehoming

    I have a male Russian box and a female Sulcata (we think) that needs rehoming. They were both rescues given to me at different times a few years ago, and I haven't been able to give them the care and dedication they deserve. The Russian is at least 8 or 9 years old; the Sulcata might be less...

    So I've had my baby for almost three years now and all was well, her shell was perfectly healthy up until she got to big for her terrarium. At that point I got rid of the terrarium and set up a location where her heat lamp and uv lamp were set up for her to use as she pleases but I'd say a...

    Surrendering 6-year-old Sulcata in Southern California!

    Hi everyone! I have raised my 6-year-old male Sulcata since he was a hatchling, but life circumstances are now making it untenable for me to keep him. He is about 14 inches long, 9 inches wide, and weighs probably only about 8 pounds. He is in great health, raised on a grass and hay diet mostly...

    Blood found on Sulcata tortoise’s poop. Only in a small amount.

    This is the first time I have seen noticeable, what looks to be like, blood on my tortoise’s poop. My tortoise is about 8-9 years old and has been doing fine recently, he has been acting normal and I think pretty healthy. It has only been today that I saw his poop about 40 minutes ago from...
