  • Hi Josh. Thanks for the welcome. I'm a licensed wildlife rehabber living in mid Missouri. I have some hatchling box turtles in my care. Absolutely adorable tiny torts! I also get injured box torts frequently. Mostly auto or mower injuries. I need all the help I can get! Lets keep in touch!
    Our learning curve has been hard. Flora Belle is kept inside due to past respiratory illnesses, 1 that turned into pneumonia. she is better now after Doc treatment. I'm concerned that she drinks around 10oz of water daily. Is this too much /little? She urinates around a litter of fluid every week to 10 days. I give her water at one time a day so she doesn't tip the bowl. How much water do they need?
    Hi Josh and Gang, I'm glad to be onboard. I have had Flora Belle from a hatchling- see pic to left. She is 8, weighs 33 lbs. It has been hard learning how to care for her over the yrs. I have listened to a lot of information and made MANY mistakes. I look forward to the knowledge I can gain from some of you who are Pros!
    Hi my greek tortoise who is almost a year old (will be one year old in December) has not been pooping lately. He continues to eat regularly and bathe regularly (30 minutes every other day in luke warm water) he tries very hard to get his stool out but always fails. He used to be very active and such but lately he has almost seemed weak. Should I take him to the vet? Please help. I'm very concerned for him. Thank you!
    Hi Josh thanks for the welcome, we are new to tortoise keeping and having found this forum realise we have a lot to learn! Have you been keeping tortoises for long and what breed do you keep?

    Hi Josh, I posted this a bit ago, and so far have nothing, plus two other things. Anyhow, wondering if you can help or if anyone else can. "Okay, Humphrey is a sulcata (African Spur), he is 25 pds, just got him recently, have not been able to ask the previous owner but she told our neighbor that Humphrey eats fruits of all kinds. My neighbor has a mango tree and I am wondering if Mango is safe?
    Hi Josh,
    The new format is beautiful. I haven't been on for a long time and glad to be back. Congratulations! Question: Do you know why a new thread would not show up in the list of new or recent posts? Thanks and all the best,
    Ron
