    Tort whistling ???

    I just tried to get it up there and it didn’t work. Every time I went to squirt it rex put his head in and I dont want to try and hold it‘s head and hurt . He/she is only three inches super small. Any tips for me to get the saline in there?

    Tort whistling ???

    I’ve posted a recent thread about my tort whistling but didn’t get too much feedback I’m hoping for more chatter in this thread. My one year old eastern hermanns started to do this whistling noise about three weeks ago. Naturally I think the worst of his health and am so worried about him. His...

    Tort whistling ???

    My one year old tort (eastern hermanns) has been whistling and making a loud squeaking noise. His temps and enclosure are right ( thanks to the confirmation and good advice from this site)…. I would imagine torts make some vocal noises? His nose is not runny and he is active as usual, he eats...

    Moving 1 year old tort to the yard?

    He is in a closed chamber enclosure now and thriving so that’s why I was hesitant to do this. I let him out on the deck in a rubber maid container with water and a hide for about 45 minutes on nice days. Thanks for the advice I guess I’ll continue to just do that until he’s older and ready!

    Hello, My Eastern Hermmans enclosure is a pretty text book set up, thanks to everyone on here over the last year. I am in PA and It’s been 13 degrees the past week. Even with blasting my heat and trying to seal off the enclosure the best I can I am struggling with humidity. I make sure the...

    Transporting Tortoise In Freezing Weather?

    Wow this was very informative thank you! I agree I do not feel comfortable leaving it alone for days , I mean I change it’s water , clean up food, check temps alll day I cant imagine leaving with no tort sitter I’d be so nervous. Maybe in a few years but not a baby

    Transporting Tortoise In Freezing Weather?

    Since its just a little guy , yes it will have a complete set up like at my house... His big plastic bin, UVA light and UVB bulb along with the CHE. Also it’s soaking bowl. For now it’s easy to transfer his whole enclosure because he lives in a 4x2 Rubbermaid

    Transporting Tortoise In Freezing Weather?

    That’s a great idea, I wonder if pets smart or pet owner would have something like that and I can set it in a wooden box. Let me know how many warmers you needed... mine in a little guy only 3 inches big .

    Transporting Tortoise In Freezing Weather?

    I think I’ve heard of this for hunting to put in gloves, do I put it in his enclosure or in a little box with the hot hands to the side not touching him?

    Transporting Tortoise In Freezing Weather?
