    The End Of Pyramiding

    Your welcome. A recent field study of leopard tortoises at both high elevation and sea level was conducted over a year using remote probe thermometers inserted up the tortoises cloaca. They showed that the desired core temp of theses tortoises is around 92F. They seek out both sun and shade...

    How do you all feed Mazuri, wet or dry?

    Hatchlings - soggy. Soak for about 15 min. Adults - dry. Make sure there is plenty of water available.

    Best Set up For Leos

    At 5 weeks the shell should be getting pretty hard. All mine that hatch out plastrons are just slightly flexable at 5 weeks. Not as hard as a tortoise 6 months old, but I would not describe it as soft. I dont use any supplements. You should be getting your tortoise outside in the sun as much...
