The small Sulcata you just now thought the bump on it's head looked like an abscess...to me it just looks like a normal Sulcata head, the skin looks rugged and tough, not like an abscess...I think...lol I'm saying this here so I don't embarrass myself in public by saying this...hahaha

Hi Mark!
I was wondering if you're accepting orders for a closed chamber enclosure. I am looking for a good enclosure for a young leopard tortoise and was recommended to talk with you. My email is [email protected], if you have the time to discuss.

Thanks for reading!
Seeking a foster home 9 months a year for my redfoots - eastern shore of MD. Please contact me asap if interested. Thank you!
Hi, I’m new here and I am so thankful I found this forum. I have two red footed tortoises that I got in January. They haven’t grown very much since I’ve had them but never really thought much of it. They are 9ish months old and still fit in the palm of my hand. They are are very friendly and love getting their chins rubbed. I brought their terrarium outside this weekend for the first time and not sure if they like it
