    Recommended Digital Temp Gun

    General Tools Mini Infrared Thermometer $22.97 Home Depot And I also have sensors set up all around my enclosure which this little gun agrees with. I have also used a more expensive gun which gave me the same readings as my little cheapo. Works for me. -Meg

    Help (Need help with Russian Diet)

    GRR. Work computer doesn't always play nice. Back to what I was saying. But make the "mash" with new items and tortoises "favorites" to encourage tasting new. My guy won't touch pellets, but you can try soaking those and adding them to the mash as well...

    2020 tortoise forum calendar?

    Okay. I know I am newish(well been a creeper for years but only recently legit), but I am gonna toss my two cents in. I get that the actual production of a calendar would/could be ridiculously expensive especially without doing it with forced preorders and with it being something that would...
