    In love with a potted plant?

    I think each tort has its own thing. This one just loves that pot. They are just all so stubborn in their own way...

    Is my tortoise ok

    I think it's just stain from the coconut coil. I put a light color marble tile on top of the coconut coil as a serving plate to my Clyde, and the bottom side of the plate turned dark brown overtime and it's impossible to wash off.

    Leaving My Tort Alone.

    Need some help to find Pyramiding debate posts

    If it can be done, that would be amazing. Because this breeder is selling the babies at $2,500 each. I understand the rarity in Canada, but the price is still too steep for a baby that is already pyramiding. From what I know, Canada doesn't allow tortoise to be imported for commercial use, only...

He is the only breeder in Canada that breeds Egyptian tortoise, but sadly, all his little babies are pyramiding. He raises them in open top enclosures with humid hides...

    Sudden death of 3 month old Indian Star

    Sorry for your loss. I think unless you live in a really humid climate and the humidity of your whole room is at 90%, it is impossible to maintain the humidity of your entire tortoise enclosure to be above 90% with an open front. You mentioned that the sensor for humity is in the tunnel, which...
