Hey Tom, I was wondering if you sell those baby tortoise enclosures you have, if not how did you make it? I’m trying to get my hatchling sulcata tortoise a high humidity enclosure and it’s difficult. I bought a greenhouse to put over it but I’m not going to use it because I fear the plastic will catch on fire. Thanks

I buy them from @Markw84 or from Animal Plastics.
My tortoise keeps climbing his enclosure and flipping himself over, he is also scratching the sides of his enclosure non stop any advice?

Hi Katelyn you would be better off posting this on the main forum to get more responses.
Maybe write it in the introductions section and tell us about your tort species, age etc with pics of his enclosure and lamps so that we can see if there's anything affecting his behaviour.

How big is your enclosure? You may need to size up. Make sure there is a hiding spot as he may be trying to find somewhere to hide.
Hey Tom, I liked the baby sulcata care guide you made.
I was wondering do I really need any artificial uvb light in my enclosure? I would rather take my baby sulcata outside for an hour or two for the natural uvb instead.
If I don’t take him outside, how long does artificial uvb light need to be used for?

I live in San Diego, California and it’s always sunny how long do you recommend the baby sulcata being outside for daily? I was confused because people discord were saying you need artificial uvb in there enclosure for 8+ hours a day. Are they wrong? Because I would prefer my baby sulcata be outside for some of the day getting natural uvb

Yes, they are wrong. Most of the tortoise info you find out in the world is wrong. My general rule is one hour of sunshine per inch of baby tortoise. 2 or 3 times per week is plenty. Be sure there is always shade available, and soak afterwards. Its no problem to skip a few weeks in winter.

Ok thanks a lot!
I ordered a WH from Chris too! When you paid for your tort, about how long did it take until you recieved her?
