Hi TFO members. Am a new tortoise mom, after acquiring a 3-month old sulcata tortoise last month. I have learned so much about caring for my baby sulcata, just by reading the exchanges. Am looking forward to learning how to address concerns in raising tortoises, especially from those living in tropical areas.
I am looking to upgrade my baby leopard tortoises habitat! He is currently in a plastic tote which has worked wonderfully and I have been able to regulate the temp and humidity in it great but he just needs something a little bigger. Any suggestions would be a huge help!!!
Hello Mark! I am new to the tortoise world and am quickly realizing how much misinformation I received. Glad to have found a reputable forum and see that you are the person to speak to about enclosures. We have an adult Russian. Can you please send me information on your enclosures when you have an opportunity? My email is [email protected]. Thank you!
I am starting to build an outdoor night time enclosure for my Sulcata (Sherman Tank), and the thread you had previously posted about your best night box yet has great text, but none of the images are showing up... is that something wrong on my end or has something happened to the post? I remember viewing it previously and would really appreciate that helpful starting point!
Hi Tom I have a yearling marginated I posted for about a week ago. I bought a glass terrarium like you recommended to help keep better control of the humidity. This terrarium is much taller than the box I was using so my 100w ceramic heating element is only getting the basking spot to about 86F. Should I move up to a 150w element? What element brands do you recommend?
