Ok I just night him a pack of stuff from the website...But someone suggested no Hay because he’s too little!!
I would love to do that but right now I don’t have the resources or the time and money for this stuff right now! So I did what I had to do! I got a combination of cactus leaf, mash mallow, nettle leaf and Ross flower coming!!You can also plant seeds of grass and then when it grows you can cut it up and sprinkle over the greens.
Unfortunately I live in a town home! There no yard!!How big is he?? The orchard grass hay is soft. I’ve been feeding it to mine since he was tiny. You have to soak it in water and mince it up. Mix it with the greens to get him used to it. Timothy Hay is harder and usually the tiny ones can’t eat it. Do have any other grass in your yard??
I have those!!They cannot eat hay easily at a young age, but they need/ need to be offered grass at all possible feeding times. If you can't find much grass, use Mazuri LS or Grassland tortoise diet pellets
I give these to my baby 1-2 times a week - I moisten it until it becomes soft and mix it with the greens/veggies.I have those!!
Lord have mercy...didn’t expect so much from getting a tortoise...I can’t spend anymore at this time till I get paid!
So I’ll be giving him a little bit of this in his food if it’s suggested!
Though someone suggested to wait till they were bigger!!
Lord help me!!
Tank you, you been a lot of help! I appreciate you a lot!The pharmacies where you can order medicine from. I order from Allivet and my vet approves the order
Yes...I’ll mix in with his greens tomorrow! Thank you for this information!!Soak those pellets and mix in with his greens. I only give about two of them a day mixed in to get mine to eat more grass. Good job on the new hide and ordering new food! Don’t forget daily soaks!!
Boom*Also, if I consider on getting a bigger tub, any recommendations on sizes...brand is welcome! I found a big one at Home Depot but then I was also suggested to use a bookshelf and turn it over on its back and bara bing bara bomb we have an enclosure!
If I have to put him in a spare room to have his own...
You beat I’ll do it lol!
Yes I have! Someone suggested to get a plastic covering to help keep his humidity and heat..so that’s my next task!Well you need to cover it with something to keep heat and humidity inside. Use that for now while you figure out his next one. Open tops don’t work well. I’m sure you read Tom’s caresheet?
