    One care sheet to rule them all?

    Maggie brings up a good point about the parasites; an inexperienced tort keeper may not have caught that the sullie starting "acting not just right"... Also, I know my leopards like the heat turned up, so altho 80F would do, it would not be ideal... Lots of good thoughts going around ~...

    Lenne's Bath Time

    Greetings, Myssie You know, my juveniles race around in the bath when they are in the sink, but when I put them outside, I always set them down in their "pond", and walk away... it's then that they take their time, drinking & just lounging for a moment before they are off to chow upon...

    having a issue with a hatchling losing weight... look at measurements please

    One care sheet to rule them all?

    Greetings Mark, You may want to mention that there are aquariums made specifically for tort's, that are low (avoiding the stuffiness) and large (allowing for a more significant base size than a regular aquarium). I have a "bedroom" for my tort's that sits atop my entertainment center &...

    Salutations ~ Since all of my tort's are age 4 & under, I, too, cut cactus pads into strips ~ I also cut my prickly pears into wedges, to make it easier for my sweeethearts to get a better bite. Take care, Purpod

    Hiya Yvonne ~ Nice pic's; I've had a soft spot in my heart for boxies ever since I lived in NC & they were roaming out & about everywhere's... It 'prolly shouldn't, & yet it always does, blow my mind that peeps think iceberg lettuce is a good thing to feed tort's. I remember when I was...
