    Duck egg mystery

    Possibly My wife pointed out that ALL of the neighborhood ducks seem to have vanished. Both Muscovy and the Egyptian "geese". There was a pretty healthy population here. I'm not complaining. They are nasty, disease riddled and they love crapping on my porch and in my fish ponds.

    New owner of THREE Red-Footed Tortoises

    Compassion for tortoises compared to mammals

    See? That's different. My largest, oldest and favorite RF clearly hates me. Her only thought is "Get out of my pen!"

    My tortoise and its enclosure

    I HATE being THAT person to tell you. But both of those are no-no items. The red bulbs make everything look red and Redfoot like to eat red things. Thst leads to all kinds of impaction issues. You need a CHE on a thermostat. It provides heat with no light. That UVB light is a coiled/spiral...

    Duck egg mystery

    I don't get it. Today, momma duck was out looking for food and I checked out the nest.. The one egg I saw is gone. And I see no other eggs or any shells. Maybe a feral cat ate the chick...But where's the shell?

    Using crested gecko diet for protein in Redfoot diet?
