    Florida Gopher Tortoise - Egmont Key

    I was fortunate to visit Egmont Key (Tampa Bay Area) over the Memorial Day weekend with my family. We spotted several gopher tortoises on the island and it was beautiful to see them enjoying the day foraging for berries.

    Male Hermanns needs new home

    Cypress mulch talk, again

    I use coco coir with a cypress mulch top layer for my tortoise. It works great and helps with humidity. I never had any problems.

    Burmese Star Baby - Thriving in a Humid Enclosure

    4.25" and 550grams. Rainbow enjoying his/her outdoor enclosure. This is temporary and I'm building a large permanent enclosure with a heated night box for two. Making a big enough outdoor divided pen, so I can get a Leopard or MEE/MEP.

    There is some very slight concavity. I guess we’ll see how it develops over the coming months. I appreciate the replies and information.
