I currently have a glass tank with a screen top, but need to upgrade to a bigger size for my baby sulcata tort. What is best to use? I see large shallow containers being used and other housing items. I just want to do the right thing. Please help.
Hello, I’m happy to be a new member. Look forward to learning a lot.
Right now my question has to do with Charlies shell (4month old sulcata) Is it normal for the shell to have dents and or lumps at this age? Or am i doing something wrong with his diet, UV ect. Thanks in advance for helpful advise.
Hey Tom, I am looking for a good UVA/UVB light strip for my sulcata. I was looking for the Arcadia ProT5 17% UVA and 7% UVB and ran into that one and a 12% UVB. I would need to put the light on top of the wire i have on the enclosure. Do you prefer one over the other? Thank you!

My 45# Sulcata just had to have his beak trimmed.. I'm not sure what's its called in Tortoise language but he has to lift his head up over the V type breast piece to eat, it looks like he's having trouble lifting it that high to get up & over.. Do they ever trim that??? The Veterinarian didn't mention anything about it.. I just need to know if anyone has ever had that trimmed
I'm ReflectedGray. I live in the California Bay Area. I have a Russian tortoise named Delilah. Delilah is approximately 13 - 15 years old, though I am unsure as she was a rescue. I've had Delilah for most of her life, and she is my only tortoise. I love tortoises generally and would likely have others if my living space permitted it. In addition to Delilah I have a dog, cat, and horse.
Hey hi...are you still looking for a home for Fred? There's a very experienced TFO member who would like him. He lives about 40 miles from me. He is willing to pay shipping, is there something we can work out?
Hi Carol, I am hoping you have russian tortoises available. Our families has been researching tortoises and what type of care they need for awhile and are ready to bring a tortoise into our family. It seems like you are the breeder to contact! Or if you don't have any now or in the near future, is there someone you recommend? We are so glad to have stumbled upon this site. Thank you.
