    Thoughts on Mazuri tortoise diet ls?

    My sulcata is 1 years old. He gets calcium once a week. When he gets his calcium I give him some mazuri pellets to mix with the calcium. I’ve heard many different opinions on this. Please let me know. If it isn’t the best for them, what should I replace it with? He doesn’t like to eat his...

    My one year old sulcata is still half the size of the palm of my hand.

    I do everything right I believe. Uvb light, basking light, ceramic heat lamp, pellets once a week with calcium, daily soak, unlimited grass. Has no sign of pyramiding so that’s good. I posted on Facebook and someone said he might be a failure to thrive. I don’t know what that means? He seems...

    What should be included in an emergency kit?

    It’s almost hurricane season. I live right on the coast so I’m nervous about power going out. I live in a condo so I’m sure it’ll go out. I have hand warmers. But that was for winter, if the power went out.

    My sulcata always seems hungry

    He’s is always walking back and forth. He eats some hay but not much. I feed him veggies once a week and 1 pellet 2 times a week on calcium days. I can’t get him grass because I don’t trust the one outside my house. I tried growing it but it never goes well. My sulcata is about 6 months

    Lamps aren’t getting hot enough

    I just moved my baby sulcata to a 40 breeder. This is definitely not permanent and will be for maybe a year or two. His basking is only getting to 78° and the ceramic heat is at 88°. What can I do? I guess it’s like this since the lid is pretty high.

    I just assumed they dug when they were older. I didn’t know they like to dig at such a young age. Does that mean his enclosure is too hot?

    I didn’t know until after I bought it that people don’t recommend it for babies. I didn’t like him In a tank. But a tank definitely was easier with humidity. I’m on a tight budget and will have to get another enclosure in a couple of weeks.
