    2022 Calendar

    I have no idea of the cost. That figure was just an example to explain how the costing can be done. I tried to explain it in the easiest way I could -- but English is not my first language. No offense was intended -- no need to get vexed over it. Just forget my "ridiculous" suggestion.

    2022 Calendar

    I didn’t realize it would be a contest. Many of us are relatively new and were not present in those days when you did the photo contest and calendar. For the proposed 2023 calendar, may I suggest the following: Instead of a photo contest, we can turn this 2023 calendar event into a simple...

    How to get the torts to like Mazuri

    So my torts are normal (for not liking Mazuri) after all, judging from a number of posts here that say their torts, too, are not keen on mazuri. I am not replacing their healthy greens with mazuri - just want them to learn to eat all good things in case their favorites are not available. I also...

    How to get the torts to like Mazuri

    I tried giving them a newly bought pack of 5M21 (because the old pack is about 3 months old, although it will be expiring on jan 2022). Still the same reaction -- they eat a couple of mouthfuls then sit on it, enjoying its coolness. When i give them their regular mixture of greens (grasses with...

    How to get the torts to like Mazuri

    Thanks. I can try that. My torts haven’t tried papaya or watermelon as I think these fruits are high in sugar. But will give it a try. I have been offering it for about 3 months now -soaked pellets wrapped in the veggie leaf of the day, and sliced like tiny sushis. No takers. They’re polite...

    How to get the torts to like Mazuri

    My torts are mainly grass and veggie eaters and are able to eat some mazuri when i wrap the soaked pellets in leaves and cut them up like thin sushi. They are housed in separate, almost-closed glass enclosures with correct humidity and temps, are well hydrated, get their daily soaks and uv...

    How to get the torts to like Mazuri

    Both are sulcatas. The label just says mazuri, with no variants. I think this is the only type of mazuri sold in manila.

    How to get the torts to like Mazuri

    I have been (trying) to feed my 2 baby torts soaked mazuri wrapped in veggie leaves then sliced up. So that they will be forced to eat them, I withold their salads (mixture of grass and low-oxalate, low-protein veggie leaves) for a while. However they eat only a couple of mouthfuls and use the...

    Disarming turtle traps

    Effective actions against these illegal activities are long-term and cannot be done by you alone. A movement against turtle trapping has to be created, and this can be done when local communities understand the negative impact to their environment, and consequently, to their livelihoods, should...

    Baby sulcuta not eating, eyes closed, and not moving

    Am not sure if the matrix is readable, but here it is - 2 pages of it. Please note that this is a work in progress, especially the frequency of feeding which i would often change, depending on new information. The info in this matrix came from different sources in the internet.

    Baby sulcuta not eating, eyes closed, and not moving

    Everyday i prepare 2 cups of cut up greens and put them in a tupperware: 50% is made up of carabao grass mixed with napier grass; and 50% is a combination of 3 groups of greens and 1 group of "fruits". Group 1 consists of mulberry leaves and hibiscus leaves/flowers, given alternately everyday...

    Baby sulcuta not eating, eyes closed, and not moving

    Hello @gabbyladi. I am a sulcata tort keeper also living in Manila. My baby torts are now 5 and 7 months old. The older one has been started dry but the younger one was started well. I have no experience with having soft shell torts, but have overcome issues of respiratory infection, poor...
