@Tom I have a sulcata 4 years old and I need to make a winter home. Any recommendations? Tight now he is longing in this and has to be covered since we have hawks but I would like to attach something that he can go in for winter
I'd like to see your night boxes. You put a link that shows tinypics to access your pictures but they shut down on September 2019. Did you save them?
i'd appreciate if you can post them again as well as the outside enclosure you did.
Hi Tom. Just wanted to give you a heads up tinypic announces they were no more hosting which I've noticed messes up a lot of post. Your heat box threads super helpful all need updated photos, idk maybe a moderator can upload it or something.. not sure I'd another good photo just too as I use tiny pic myself. Such a pain In the butt
Hi Tom. Last weekend, I saw the pictures of the outside enclosure you built with the bricks and wood. Is there any chance you can post the pictures again. They have disappeared and I would love to build this
And I will get a PVC enclosure like you've mentioned bc it's the best for humidity and ambient temp, which you've said and also that maintaining them are v important factors to minimize pyramiding. Do your leopards have minimal pyramiding from living in such conditions? So many leopards I've seen on the web all have bad/lots of pyramiding, and I wanna do everything I can do minimize pyramiding on my leopard. Thanks
I just wanted to simply let you know that I greatly appreciate you and several others on here and value and respect your suggestions and information. I have 5 sulcatas ages 20 yrs to 9mos, 3 aldabras, and 2 radiated babies.
You are a true blessing to this website and I just simply wanted to tell you that. Thanks for all you do for us on the TFO (and for the torts!)
Hello, I came across your forum postings today when doing research because my grandma bought herself a young Russian Tortoise. I'm researching what a good enclosure for him would be. Most people say turtle tables, but you say vivariums/closed habitats. Could you elaborate? Thanks in advance.
I read mistakes forum. What important things TO DO for russian tort 4 inches?
I live in utah & want to build outdoor enclosure but weather changes quick. What is too cold?
He will only eat romaine (no weeds, veggies, etc). Should I soak grass pellets & mix with food?
INdoor enclosure: I want to build a big wood enclosure but worry wood will get damp & stink.
And Best substrate?
Heat lamp off at night? Ideal temps?
