    I swear your aldabras would roll over to have their tummies tickled if they could :D

    Sabine can you use the rheostat?
    Personally I run mine on a dimming thermostat but rheostats I think are better for the closed chamber.

    Sabine! I have not been on the forum for a few days, so I missed the arrival of the babies. I am so excited for you! An aldabra has always been my dream, but for me it is not a practical dream. So I will happily live my dream through Mahe & Moyenne. What beautiful babies they are. I bet you are getting nothing else done but sitting and watching them, am I right? Please post many videos!

    Hello Shirley, the arrival of the babies you can see and read here:
    https://www.tortoiseforum.org/threa...-from-2-aldabra-tortoise-babies.169044/page-5
    I am proud and happy when you can live your dream a little bit with the pics and videos of Ma & Mo.
    I will post many pics and videos, I promise.
    I love to watch them but I have more pets that need me too. But when I am sitting at my PC I can watch what they do.:):tort::tort::<3:

    Ok I think it's not recomended to put an mvb on a dimmer. It only works on really old ones. I guess you could put a uvb tube instead and put a che on a dimmer for heat. Just a suggestion...

    Todays news: Ma and Mo doing fine. Sleeping, eating, soaking, eating, eating, eating, pooping, sleeping.... ( their day ):D
    By the look on this tiny shelled creatures I really can`t imagine that they will get big so soon.

    One of the two happiest sights for a tort owner — when your tort eats. [emoji173]️ (The other is when he/she poops[emoji23])
