I know sorting through sci lit can be a challenge and it might be easier to just do what others do. However that methodology has lead to iceburg lettuce fed rabbit pellet substrate sulcatas, Yeah?
Angulates have a huge range with highly variable annual cycles of water and temp. They would seem to not re-establish well, but once established are pretty durable. There are reports in the lit of them getting out and about so early in the morning that frost is on their shell, hardly wall flower tortoises. I got to see several in RSA, and they are very common where they occur, insect like proportions. Even found a nest.
I hope to see you all be successful with them in captivity.
I clicked on the link for this article:
"Seasonal and Site Variation in Angulate Tortoise Diet and Activity"
It only gives me the abstract, and not the article. How do I get the whole article to come up? Forgive me if its something obvious, but I've tried clicking on just about everything, and can't seem to find the text.
