I have been up all nite making sure my Galapa Tort is warm and still alive.I just want to give him the best home I can.keeping his temp enclosure(10 gal tank)dry but misting him.I will make a moc mudd pit for him to wallow in and an outdoor pin for the daylight hours and i will supervise him while outside. Im not sure about alot of things but I am very knowledgable when it comes to reptiles.I am also the proud parent of 18 hatchling Salcatas that are doing excellent.
By temporary enclosure, how temporary are you talking. I was at that show and having seen the ones being sold by Mr Fife, a ten gallon tank is barely suitable for transporting it. Have you figured out what your next enclosure is going to be. I’d say your permanent enclosure but for young galaps there is no such thing; when kept in good conditions these guys grow at an amazing rate.
My two were 9” (twice as large as the one you purchased) and 2000 grams when I got them a year ago. They are now a bit over 16” and 9500 grams!
If you want advice on keeping young galaps this is definitely the best place and I am always willing to chat in private messages though public discussions help everyone learn.
