And little Axl is an EASTERN hermanns tortoise. Took be a bit to learn all the terminology and anatomy to understand. Peeved the seller sold him as a western and probably knows so but no matter. He is my little scutting monster!
Noticed a poop while poking around Axls enclosure. Moved his light into the middle to raise the temperature in the whole space a bit. His eyes have opened fully again and he is eating his salads and doing his rounds.
Little Axl has both eyes closed this morning, even after our 20 min bath session.
I changed his substrate last night to EcoEarth and this mornings humidity is 80%.
He is just chilling under his lamp, legs out stretched and sometimes tucks his head way in.
I also fed him mazuri tortoise food yesterday for the first time. It was a store packed bag so I will call and ask what type exactly it is.
In the last two days the magnolia tree across the street has exploded in blossoms. A check at TTT and it says safe in moderation. Considering the little dude is learning new foods, I broke off a blossom and pulled the nice soft petal from inside out.
Second day with the Axl eating! Problem is he will only touch romaine lettuce. I will continue to put other options with the lettuce as well but does anyone have any suggestions to get him to eat his wild greens?
