    which generator are you using for your tort? I'm looking for a small one that automatically turns on in a power outage, and only for my tort. but all of the ones I see are those big, pricey ones that you attach physically to your house or something. Not sure if what I'm looking for even exists.

    How do you keep the grass short/certain length in an outdoor fenced enclosure?

    For outdoor fenced areas your tortoise can roam around and eat grass in. If theres to much grass for the tortoise to eat, what do people do to keep the grass from growing super tall? use a lawn mower?

    Mould growing on orchid bark in closed cage?

    I know it's not safe, but is this normal? My cage has high humidity, usually between 75-85% as it's a closed PVC cage. I spray some areas of the cage 2 or maybe 3 times a day. How am I supposed to avoid growing mould on the orchid bark?

Where in Canada or the west coast can I find small or medium size bark mulch that's completely free of chemicals and added...

Who knows how much...
