Hi, I am new here and I have never had a tortoise and I live in Northern Virginia and I would really like a tortoise that would go outside when possible and I have heard that soil and sand is not good for them so I need some advice.
I bought that rabbit/bunny bedding and I knew it was a mistake but the lady at the reptile store told me it was okay. I would like to purchase the Orchid bark. I need to change his lighting but I'm lost to which one to buy. I'm might buy the herbal hay from tortoise supply. He is eating pretty good at dinner time. I try giving him carrots and hibiscus leaves and seems to be picky but only eats romaine lettuce
Wanted to give you the heads up that I posted pictures of my babies on Facebook and explained that they where Sudanese sulcatas and I’m getting a lot of people asking for contact with the breeder and or your info, so I’m telling them to message you here. Thanks again they are absolutely stunning.
I went ahead and separated them as you advised, now i have the dad alone and the mom with 3 2&3 year old babies. I suppose I should bring him back next spring when they wake up to mate? How often and for how long should I keep them together? Thanks my guru!
Tom, my male ibera is biting the female's legs and banging her all the time chasing her around the enclosure. I know it's how they mate, but in nature, she can run away. This looks more like rape than flirt. I am wondering if I should get a second female to allow the first one to get a break or keep him separated when he gets very excited and starts biting.
