    CDT for adoption I am in San Diego

    I have come to the conclusion that I will eventually have to find homes for my CDTs. I am in no hurry and can wait years ,but if a tortoise lover with a great tort home becomes available I have a very spoiled male CDT that is very friendly but aggressive to other male torts.

    Has anyone used Immune IQ?

    My poodle has goopy eyes. I tried Angel Eye and all the other stuff to cure it with no luck. I heard somewhere it could be allergies, so I sent a saliva and hair sample to immune IQ. It came back that she is allergic or sensitive to a LOT of common dog food ingredients . Does anyone know if...

    Probably a dumb question.....but...(playing with a hatchling)

    A friend's daughter has a baby sully and she likes to play with it and let it walk around. She sometimes puts it in a plastic hamster ball to walk around the house. It is a tiny tort. This seems like a bad idea to me, but that is just a gut feeling. What are your thoughts. Only experienced...

    My Avitar

    I found an old album of my Grandma's and this picture of me at the San Diego Zoo on a tort was in it. How cool is that? I think I was almost three years old. I guess this is when my love of torts started ;) although I have no memory of it

    Feeding DE

    I belong to a F/B group for parents of children who have compromised immune systems. One thing I have been reading a lot is people feeding their kids DE for parasites. Does anyone give DE to their torts for parasites or parasite prevention? If so how is it fed?

    Free tort table

    I have a tortoise table I want to get rid of. My torts are outside full time now. It is not fancy, but works. It is about 6'X3' and has a built in hide. I made it out of an entertainment center. It needs a coat of paint. Free if you pick up in La Mesa ( San Diego county) California.

    A horrible cat story :(

    My mom live with us. She moved in almost a year ago. Her cat has always been an apartment cat and was loving being able to go out during the day. She would mostly stay in the yard or go next door and hang out under our next door neighbors deck. They enjoyed her visits. Well they moved last...

    Sleeping out side.

    For those of you in San Diego with out side CDT, are you giving them a heated hide at night? I am in La Mesa. We are tired of bring the torts in at night so built them an enclosure that has heat and can be closed up at night.....but in the summer do they need the heat? It is pretty warm here...

    Is this flashing?
