Hello Dee57. Teddy here in Leesburg. I have 7 red foots. 5 youngsters from 1 to 2 years and 2 adults of 9 years. Great outdoor terrariums, fresh foods and water daily. If I qualify I could pick them up in JAX after the 1st week of July. Phone. 954-815-7402. Thanks
I have two Ornate Box Turtles from West Texas Border area. They've been with my for a year and have grown from 2 and 3 grams to 111 grams and 112 grams for the other in that year. I have learned everything about them, so far, on my own through research, they are a difficult breed to to tend to for sure!
Hey Tom new to the group and tortoise husbandry, I read your article on care for leopards and found all the information fascinating. My question is….is this information and guidelines just for hatchlings? I believe I have a yearling and I want to make sure I have everything correct. The enclosure is a 4x4x8 ft everything to your specs as well. Just wondering when to switch to different specs as they grow
Turtle was lost in backyrd winter 2020-21. Tho relatively mild, there were 5-6(?) freezing nites. He didn't bury deep enuf & top half of keratin froze off, leaving him mostly "bald". 5 mos after he was found "black stuff" started growing UNDER shell at seams of scutes. Is the black replacement keratin? or? He acts ok. (the single herp-vet in Eugene,Ore. is NO help at all.) Tried attaching pic w/o luck.
