    Advice needed please.Growing a prickly pear cactus from a pad.

    You can use the clay, just mix in equal parts coarse sand. Make sure the cactus pad has scabbed over from where it was cut off of the mother plant, other wise, yes, it will rot. Water sparingly. I just cut off a dozen pads from an unruly cactus. To balance it out. Have about 2 dozen fruits...

    Do I return this found tortoise?

    Bowsersmom, I love the pipe cleaner Idea. I was even thinking of a way to attach an Apple Air Tag, with velcro, or maybe a Harness. I have a large yard and my old roommates Sulcata was about 10" in diameter, He (PeeWee) could hide right in front of your face...another "Magician"

    Presentation at an elementary school

    Jamie, You might also mention how some species are threatened, due to habitat loss, & environmental concerns. Like the Turtles 🐢 down in Texas that got stranded in that cold snap that hit the state several months ago. Wow, 🥰 you are lucky to have such a fantastic opportunity to do outreach on...

    Tortimer is just awesome... even though he hates me

    Yes, they seem to have a magical power, the ability to levitate without you knowing it (ha, ha), the epitome of an escape artist.
