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?
Hi! I’m a young tortoise owner from England. Had my baby Hermann’s since July 2017 , though she hatched in 2016! Her name is Piella, as I’ve always thought tortoises look like little meat pies (also a character name from Wallace & Gromit).
She’s growing bigger every day and soon will move into a larger run out in our garden - summer 2021 is approaching!
Hoping Duckster’s girlfriend’s eggs that were laid 3/3/21 are fertile and healthy. All set up in the Reptibator. Smart thermostats keeping 86 and proper humidity. Nice and white. Don’t disrupt them. I will candle in another couple weeks. Hopefully to see some veins and a small mass. Only time will tell. If not this time maybe the next time.
I have 2 adult Hermann males.. I live in Georgia and game completed an outdoor pen..My question. After completing the major outdoor pen I've now got black red ants. Can mt tortoises be around diatomaceous earth? Or what can I use to get rid of the ants that won't hurt my babies. Relocating the pen is not an option. Thank you for your help
someone please help me with my russian tortoise!! i can’t find any good enclosures or hides. she’s very picky with her food. i don’t know what lights i’m supposed to be using there’s so many opinions on all.
hi Bill. i talked with you in 2013 when i had purchased my first rads, and i appreciate the care sheet you sent me back then. I replied to the email you had sent before but it bounced back. I have a quick question for you about a new purchase and think you may have an answer i am looking for. if you could please reach back out to me at [email protected], i appreciate your time. jeff
This is not a tortoise related question, but how the heck do you survive the puppy biting phase? It’s been 15 years since I’ve had a puppy in my house and my arms and clothing are really taking a beating. I’ve become a human chew toy and it’s exhausting!
