    M.e.p. shell

    Does anyone know what the cause is for Hotcake's shell to have a small growth / uneven raised piece on his shell? I have been watching it for a few months. It isn't going away! Any advice , and/or care instructions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Alena

    Coconut Shell

    Beautiful! Goodness, I see what you mean by the growth! I've decided to make my own indoor enclosure out of marine grade pvc . I better get it started soon. I am still researching and figuring things out as far as which is safer for Maui. The food grade /marine grade is my pick so far. I plan...

    Coconut Shell

    Is yours a Cherryhead redfoot tortoise? Maui is a cherryheaded redfoot. I believe cherryheads are the smaller redfoot. It appears Maui is growing fast...faster than I expected for sure.
