    Is my tortoise constipated because of dehydration?

    Sorry for not responding. She isn't constipated anymore after I gave an hour long bath. The temps were 105f but I lowered them down to about 98f. I haven't checked for parasites yet because I've had her for a year but I will at her next visit. I don't use humidifiers. I tried it but it didn't...

    What sex is my Hermann Tortoise?

    When I got my Hermann Tortoise Rocky he was 3-4. I got him on November 8th, 2020 and it is now November 21st, 2021. So now I think that he is 4-5 years old. I don't know if his age was accurate when I got him because about 3 months ago he started to get growth rings. I just took some photos of...

    Can I mix a small amount of pellets in with my tortoise's food every time?

    My Tortoise eats Mazuri LS. They are pretty tiny. I would say about 60 or so. I don't know if that is too little or too much. It is a lot smaller than the large terra cotta plant saucer, maybe about 1/4 of it. They're very tiny so it is hard to count. There's always a little bit left over.

    Can I mix a small amount of pellets in with my tortoise's food every time?

    Thanks for responding. I have a Hermann Tortoise that is currently 3 or 4 years old. Soon he will be 4 or 5. Last time I measured he was 5 inches but I see some growth rings so I don't know if that changes anything.

    Can I mix a small amount of pellets in with my tortoise's food every time?

    Hi everyone recently due to summer ending and my tortoise having to eat more grocery greens and testudo seed mix he has gotten more picky with food. He no longer has his favorite greens available. It seems the only way for me to fix this is to use mazuri pellets with his meals. I only use a...

    First time tortoise owner

    Here is the caresheet for Russians and Hermanns (and other tortoises too). This covers everything and will help you keep a happy and healthy Torotise.. Torotises need a basking light and a UVB light. The UVB light should be a T5 tube other types are bad and can hurt the tortoises eyes. There...

    Growth rings or something else?

    Oh thank you. I will wet the enclosure more often. I spray the enclosure down twice a day and the humidity is above 50% because of the plants. I will bathe him 4 times a week instead of 3
