    What's that scratching at the door?

    Yea I am starting to think he is finally opening up. The three years I have had him he still hides when I try to rub his head. He will let me rub his nose and between his eyes. He also tells me in his own way when he is ready for bed each night too. When I go check on him around 4-5 I he will...

    What's that scratching at the door?

    So I was sitting in the house looking at the reef tank and I heard a scratching noise at the back door. I don't know why but I instantly thought Thor was in trouble and went to investigate. When I opened the door I found Thor trying to break into the house. It's been a couple months now that he...

    Sulcata Tortoise

    They reach maturity around 12" in length. To tell if the sex look at the bottom of the shell the male has a concave bottom shell to set on top of the female. Also the shell near the business end has a V shape for male and U shape for female.

    How important is organic?

    StarWars: The Force Awakens

    I agree with you there :D, I'm just trying to say it's not only for one group of people everyone should watch it. Too many people over look these movies because they think it's too nerdy.

    StarWars: The Force Awakens

    I would say it is definitely an action movie. Don't look at it as a "geek" or "nerd" movie all of them are really well done and are a fun adventure to experience just give one a try.

    Thank you for the tortoise forum

    I am so glad that I found this forum and corrected all of the things I didn't know I was doing wrong for my torts. I will say my tortoises were living but not to the best of care possible and some tortoise aren't as lucky as mine to have made it ok until I had found this forum. So I was thinking...
