    Anyone have duckweed to spare???

    Ok so one of our foster boys has 2 turtles. We have them for now in a cattle trough. I have been looking for duckweed for them and cant find any. I have checked a couple ponds too with no luck. Would anyone be kind enough to put some in a ziplock bag and mail it to me. I will return postage.

    Anyone have any experience with TSA ?

    I went to the St Louis zoo over the weekend and got to take my foster son in with the Aldabra tortoises. Long story short, I talked to the herp keeper at length and he told me about TSA and said I should join. I looked them up but I am not sure if I should join. Anyone from TFO have any...

    Does anyone else do this?

    When I am fixing the greens for the torts I take out the big stems. Like with mustard greens I strip the leaf off the thick stem. I don't want them to get choked but at the same time it causes a lot of waste. Do I just worry to much? Lana is like 20lbs so I think she would do ok with the stems...

    We got a baby Hedgehog

    Hi all been a while since I posted. We just brought home the cutest albino Hedgehog. The boys named her Marshmallow. No pics yet cause she is very shy and every time I try to take a pic she balls balls up into a little thorny, hissing ball. I will try and get some up soon.

    hatchling tortoises in the wild

    I have been thinking about hatchling tortoises in the wild. Mainly Leopard and Sulcata. If hatchlings spend most of their time in a burrow then how often do they come out to eat? How much sun do they get? Do they stay close to the burrow for protection? How deep/large is a hatchling burrow? In...

    How do you all feed Mazuri, wet or dry?

    Just wondering how everyone feeds Mazuri. I have always soaked mine. I like it soggy because I feel they get well needed water that way. I also worry they could get choked on hard pieces. I guess thats the EMT in me, LOL. Anyway just wondering.

    Not to happy with the local zoo.

    I have lived in IL for 7 years now and only live 25 miles from a small 15 acre zoo but have never gone until today. Most of the zoo was nice and had great enclosures except for the tortoise enclosures. They had 2 large Sulcatas, I would guess at least 100 lbs. The food bowl had lots of grapes...

    Dayo in Tanks old enclosure

    I think Tanks old enclosure will do for Dayo for a couple years. She seems to like it. I cover it with bird netting but I am always right there keeping a close eye on her.
