Lately I've had... THE ITCH. Has anyone invented the cure for "maybe just one more tortoise" yet?
Hi everyone, I am the owner of an old Spur Thigh called Toby. I have had him since 1978 at the age of eight, you've guessed he was a wild one. Sadly in those days little was know about how they were captured, thank heavens we live in more enlightened times. He is very much loved and rules the roost!
How do I shut up people who think it is okay to drill holes in the shell of a tortoise. I am sick to my stomach listening to them!
How often do sulcata tortoise eat. I also have mister oogway in a cage with a leopard gecko is that fine I figured they are both desert animal’s
