    Hi Tom. I have a Sulcata Tortoise. When l came out to check on him, he had a big chunk of reptibark in his mouth. I quickly took it out and made him drink water to pass it through if he ate anything. Yet he went back and took a piece again. I don't know what sudden behaviour this was. The...

    l think the second one is a male as its tail looks like it might be curled up to the side, the rest are females from what l see.

    He wont eat!!

    I don't think the tortoise should have that much fruit, although it depends on the species. Can you show a picture so we can figure out what to feed it?

    Does she look healthy

    I just use a kitchen scale, and l put plastic wrap on to the surface before weighing the tortoise and remove the plastic after, so it's not unhygienic.

    Does she look healthy

    The best bedding would be cypress mulch mixed with dirt. She should get an hour outside in the sun. To prevent serious calcium deficiencies, you should give her reptile calcium twice a week in her food. You can get most of this stuff from Flukers and ZooMed including a UVB light which is needed...

    Tortoise eye problem

    I'm so very sorry for your loss, losing these cuties is not easy at all, l still cry when l think of my previous tortoise. It is the vets fault for even thinking about doing anything to your tortoise, she could have admitted she is not a reptile vet.

    If you are ready to keep the tortoise, l would definitely keep it because who knows what will happen in the wild! It looks like an adorable companion.

If he retains muscle control, then he is fine. That means even if his head and limbs are still tucked in his shell, he’s...
