    Hello, my family is wanting to get a baby tortoise this Spring, our first one and I want to get it right. I'm in the Dallas area too and curious about region specific advice. He'd most likely be in a backyard enclosure. Are there any good resources for what's best around here? Which species thrives the best, what specific stuff enclosures need, what food grows the best, etc. Thank you so much!

    Hello turtwig. Well depends on the size of backyard and also the space you have indoors for winter time. A smaller species is about the best route to go. Hermanns, Russians, Greek, or even a redfoot is a great starter tortoise. They are all packed with personality and are quite easy to mAintain. Are

    Doesn't sound very well. What temperatures and how is the set up looking. A photo would be great. Also what are you feeding the little guy?
    Hello! I'm looking far and wide for the elusive Chaco Tortoise. My husband is an avid tortoise owner and had a female Chaco in 1980-2000. He's been unable to find another and we've been looking for several years now. I've seen a few posts in which you mention them. Do you have any leads on Chaco ownership in this day and age?!

    Chacos are very difficult to find. Most of the keepers that have them rarely sell any offspring or adults. Occasionally you will see one on the classifieds. PM me and I can put you in touch with a breeder for an offspring.

    @tortadise did you receive my pm? I don't think I received anything back from you!
    Hey tortadise,

    I've been cruising this site for a while, and my wife and I are still in search of an Egyptian. I know they are hard to come by, and I am having a hard time finding folks that breed them. I'm hoping you can help point me in the right direction in finding a breeder.

    Thank you. Happy 4th!

    Bob's been in the ground for a month now. Does he still smell? I sure would like to get the cinder blocks off his grave....Yvonne knows about North Carolina, somebody told her. Oh well...at least she didn't YELL at me...

    He shouldn't. I'd say the worms and beetles have decomposed quite well by now.
    Hi. I live in the UK. My redfoots are indoors in a viv. What do you recommend for substrate? I have had them on grass pellets but I am being told that is wrong? Also, do you know what the humidity should be? Any advice is greatly received. Thanks Donna

    Hi Donna. The best substrate for Redfoots is soil mixed with some mulch.

    Thank you, in the process of a complete re vamp of their vivs. I just want to know that I am doing the best for them.
    Hello tortadise,
    Best wishes for a happy Christmas.
    I asked Josh if he can change my username "turtlesardinia", in "TestudoSardinia" and my date of birth wrong "21/08/1978" in "26/08/1978" but he did not answer me yet ...
    You can fulfill my request?
    Or you could warn him?

    Thank You:)

    Hi there I want to buy tortoise albino sulcata from joe, do you have any recommendation about this seller?thanks
    tortadise
    tortadise
    Joe is a well known person in the reptile community. I have never purchased anything from him. But many people I know have. Should be able to find his information on fauna classifieds or king snake

    Ok,so safe to buy from him? As I'm overseas and need to transfer the bank wired. Thanks for the information
    tortadise
    tortadise
    Yes it is safe to buy from him. But overseas transactions would be best discussed with him. As far as being safe, yes indeed.
    I have a combined uva and uvb bulb for my tortoise table. Should i turn it off at night and just have it on in the day?
    tortadise
    tortadise
    Yes. Leave it on during the day. Cycle of 12-13 hours on and 11-12 hours off. What kind of bulb is it? A mercury vapor?
