Hello my name is Jakki and I am a new member! I live in WI and I have a 2-3 year old Russian tortoise named Little Foot. I have noticed that his front and back nails have been getting really long over the past few months. I have tried adding additional substrate (I use a mulch-like bark substrate) so he could naturally trim them by digging, etc but they are still getting longer. I was wondering if anyone knows of a safe way to trim the nails. I definitely don't want to cut them to short or cause harm. I am not sure what kind of tools I should use or what approach I should take. I'm thinking he'd become very upset if I just grab held one of his little legs lol. Please let me know if you have any advice/suggestions! Thanks!
