      My adopted Russian Tortoise looks like it has some shell problems. His shell is very dry and flaking. He has white spots in the shell top indented in the shell. The underside is peeling and entire parts are coming off. I started treating with some chlodexine in case I'd shell rite. Not sure what is wrong or what to do. I got him this way but seems to be getting worse. Or maybe it's better. Not sure. Please help

      Thank you for the info for the sale of the sulcatas. I am trying to figure how to post pictures. As i'm sure you can see I am not computer savvy.

      Just looked at all your enclosures. Got some great ideas. Thanks for showing pics it really helps the new people like me!

      We are just so overrun with tortoises, the thought of making more is freaky. But we do understand the difference of maintaining a species. With that said, I have no idea where this planet stands in regards to the Belliana. Seems other Kinixys are not so rare. So while I'm putting weight on her, making sure she's not egg bound and is healthy, we want to learn more and do what is best for both her and her species.

      Hi Jacqui. Seems this little HB rescue has been creating quite a stir. I joined a FB HB group and they are going nuts about having her in the Kinixys Conservancy. I just need to learn a bit more. I think Josette and her husband (who own the actual rescue that "owns" her) are open to discussing the idea of placing her in a breeding program.

    I actually live in Nebraska. I am working on creating a turtle/tortoise rescue focusing mainly on hingebacks of course...lol. I have a very supportive husband, who sometimes will ferry tortoises for me. My critters are currently my full time job and I am loving it!
