    I think part of the fear factor is that it's hard to know what one is going to do next. Sure, it may not hurt you, but it's startling to see an arthropod go from completely still to running around like a maniac. With vertebrates, it's easier to read body language. The only "bug" I'm sort of...

    Grasses...

    I've been doing a little more research and the only toxic North American grasses I can find seem to be in the Panicum and Sorghum genus, and this seems to mainly affect horses. The other thing to look out for may be anything carrying a parasitic fungus or nematode...

    ha I see what you mean. It just confused me since there is a sedge with that name

    That Is what I had been thinking. I should add, however, that Chasmanthium latifolium Is a North American forest grass, and doesn't usually stray too far from trees. Also, on number 1, I believe that it may be a tropical crabgrass. And about Java grass, do you mean this kind?

    In need of HELP! and info on 4 month old red footed tortoise

    I don’t know much about redfoots, but that enclosure looks like it has an open top, which lowers humidity.

    Imagine telling people from 1922 that we would be fighting off artificial humans on our own personal machine that can do the work of hundreds of humans 100 years from now…

    It doesn't really look like the rest of the St. Augustine in the yard. It sorta has the seed/ flower head of a Finger Grass, but has a more turf-like growth style.

    I've beat this question down already, but I thought I'd try one more time. There have been some grasses I have tried to find the safety of, but without luck 1. I believe this to be finger grass 2. Blue Grama (Bouteloua gracilis) 3. Indian/Wood grass (Sorghastrum nutans) 4. Inland Sea Oats...

    Borax- Am I overreacting?

    I bought Some TERRO outdoor liquid ant bait stakes Are these the same general product as the other TERRO products? It has borax like the others

    Plant I.D./Safety- Also: peppermint vs mint

    I’m pretty sure it was me asking the question on the inland sea oats (a little different from sea oats), but no one seems to know I’ve had to grow a lot of native plants because the clay soil combined with unpredictable rainfall and temperatures seems to be good at killing all my hard work…...

    Borax- Am I overreacting?

    Unfortunately, I have tried Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth, But it didn't seem to work. I'll Probably just go with Terro.

    Borax- Am I overreacting?

    So it would be fine to use? Would it be safe to put some cotton balls in the enclosure overnight, then let her back into it once they are gone?

    Borax- Am I overreacting?

    I know people say that borax and a sugar mixture using a cotton ball can get rid of ants, but I've been nervous to use the product since it can be poisonous.... So should I use it, or not? Note: since we've been in an extreme drought, they will go after syrup.

    In the reptile show, snakes and lizzard/dragon are still much more popular than tortoises

    When I got our tortoise from a convention, I made a lot of beginner mistakes (mostly because I hadn't found this site yet). That year, they probably had over a dozen vendors each selling several species. I think if they didn’t have so many, I wouldn’t have impulse bought. I’m not ready to give...

    Can I provide a Guess? I believe it may be Bristly Ox-tongue. The Tortoise Table is helpful with identification. Well I guess the plants I have found are too obscure.... oh well
