      Hi Josh,
      Thanks for the welcome! I am learning a lot already.
      Question: My sulcata (Tortellina 14 months) loves being outside but the weather is getting cooler. What is the minimum temp for her to be able to still play outside? It is getting cool here in GA , but in the sun, it is warm. She has a secure area in my yard for her to run around in and I walk her on the driveway.

      Thanks for the greeting Josh. I'm in the SF East Bay Area. When is the best time to put Booker in his tack room in the barn for his semi-hibernation? Temps here are now in the 50s at night, 80s daytime. How frequently should he have food and water when in semi-hibernation? I'm excited to browse the info on this site. Thanks, Sue

      I live in Riverside county in so cal. Can I leave my Russians outside during the winter, or should I hibernate them in a mini fridge?

      Josh, I have a year-old African Sulcata, named Wilbur. I soaked him today. As I was drying him, I noticed a darkish-spot on his plastron and a hard, irregularly-shaped knot on his leg. Since I found out I had cancer myself last year, my siblings got Wilbur for me, and having him has been cathartic. I am so worried.
      Any chance it ISN'T cancerous?-Marci

      I live in Hemet Ca. I have a male and a female Russian tortoises and I let them meet for the first time yesterday. The male didn't seem interested in the female at the time. This morning I put them in my front yard so they could munch on the weeds and the male started exhibiting mating behaviors. If he is successful, how long will it be before she lays eggs?

      Hi I've just joined, I have a 7 month old horsfield tortoise and have recently moved her from a vivarium to a table, that me and my girlfriend built for her and am constantly worrying about her. I worry about substrate, lights, food, humidity, and general well being.
      If I put some pictures on I would be grateful for your comments and advice. . Thanks Mark.

      It is w such a heavy heart and broken soul that I have joined this forum today. I came home yest from work to find my 4 yr old sulcata had passed away in his tort house which is inside my house. I'm hoping to find answers to what might have happended and went so wrong w my sweet Mortimer . I got morti when he was a few wks old and not 2 inches long.

      not sure if my tortoise is a radiated tortoise or an Indian star.. This morning it's just wasn't moving much and didn't want to eat.. I tried putting it to water bath to cool it down or let it poop.. After an hour or two.. It did pooped but it's very undigested.. May I know what might be wrong? Is it because it consumed some sand while I put it out in the garden?

      Hi, Josh,
      Thank you very much. I have to learn how to use this forum. I just left a new forum, "Introduction. " about my new African spurred tortoise and not knowing it age, left a picture. Have a good day!
