    Denver, Colorado 2 greeks for adoption

    Hi Dana, Thanks so much for your interest in our greek torts. I have been lazy in closing out our adoption post, my apologies. Our torts were adopted by a fellow forum member, Eweezyfosheezy. We drove to Arizona and delivered the torts mid-June. Ha ha, Highlands Ranch would've been much...

    local sacramento person with a hibiscus plant

    We live in northern Colorado and last summer I purchased a small hibiscus tree from Walmart, I think. It bloomed all summer long, beautiful salmon-colored flowers. I kept it on the porch and never did dig a hole and plant it in the ground since I don't think hibiscus plants can survive our...

    What am I doing wrong now?!

    Hi Stephanie, we live north of Denver (in Berthoud). Our first tort vet (for our golden greek that would not eat) was @ Louisville's Centennial Valley Hospital and they did not seem to be very knowledgable about tortoises and I don't think we received good care. I would not recommend them...
