    Abandoned sulcata

    Josh didn’t get to come home yesterday. His liver and kidney function have been effected from the electricity. At this point, I don’t know what the next move is. We thought he was going to be okay but the tests are not coming back good. I’ve showed him all the support that we’ve been getting...

    Abandoned sulcata

    Batman got revenge on my mom. I got a call from her a little bit ago. She went to the store to get a “few” things. While she was packing groceries in, Batman knocked a rotisserie chicken off the counter. The plastic container came open and Batman packed the chicken to a safe spot, the bathtub...

    Abandoned sulcata

    Thank you all for the well wishes! If all goes well, my husband will be coming home sometime today or tomorrow. He says that the pain is bearable expect when the nurses change the dressing and put new ointment on. His arm will be badly scarred but he is okay. That’s all that matters. My mom has...

    Abandoned sulcata

    Yesterday was a devastating day for my family. I received a call around 4:00 A.M. that my husband was being transported to the hospital and that I should get there right away. My husband is a lathe operator in a plywood plant. He’s told me that he works with sharp blades and has to be very...

    CB Russian baby tort from Carol S.

    I just received my baby from Carol S. today. My baby is absolutely gorgeous! I named him/her Vitali. So far Vitali has had a nice warm soak, spent some time basking and checking out his/her new home! Vitali is very alert and energetic. He/she is already working to demolish the spider plant that...

    Reptile Supply Company

    I received my order from Reptile Supply and I’m very impressed. I bought coco coir, sphagnum moss, MVB, digital hygrometer, black plastic hide box, mister spray bottle and a small plant holder to use for edible plants all for $80 including shipping. The shipping was rather fast as well. I’m 100%...

    Large Sulcata Fence

    I’m so glad that I saw this. We would’ve made a huge mistake. We thought we could let our big guy out into the bigger fenced in yard for a few hours a day. I will definitely not be doing that now. We will just make his area bigger before he arrives. Thanks Yvonne!

    Outdoor housing in cold climate

    I’m very curious about this myself. Where I live (western Montana) it’s very cold and we get massive amounts of snow. There are people that let their sulcatas out in the snow in this region. I personally probably won’t. I say that because on days that the sun is out it’s usually in the negatives...

    Batman

    Thank you. He’s pretty stinking cute. He’s going to be a really big boy one of these days. He’s a Maine Coon.

    Abandoned sulcata

    After getting so excited about helping this tortoise and then not being able to save him, my husband and I have been seriously discussing taking in a sulcata on a forever basis. We don’t want to buy a baby. We want to take in a sulcata that has “outgrown” their owners or is being discarded for...

    Batman

    Anyone else have a very special cat? We have a kitty named Batman. He was born in April, we got him when he was 6 weeks old. He was such a tiny, fluffy kitten. Now at 5 months old he’s huge fluffy kitty. We love him very much. He’s definitely something special. It would take all day for me to...

    Lighting a double decker tortoise table

    Thank you!! When my table was just a single table, I had problems with the dirt leaking. We used painters plastic and my tortoise was able to rip through it and get under the plastic. Since we lined the table with pond liner, we haven’t had any problems. It was about $40 to use pond liner in...
