Right now actually Petco and PetSmart have 3 brick package for 7.99.
I haven't bought coir in about 9 to 10 years now. I have no idea where it was bought from.
Just Google coconut coir bricks or just coconut coir and compare pricing and shipping. Hopefully you can find free shipping.
One hide is plenty. Better to have one hide and more walking room
Winter night temp not lower then 70. Summer can just be what room temp is.
Day temps should range from 75 to 80 with 95 to 100 basking
Feed enough food that he can graze all day long on and off. Feed every day.
2x6 too small for one adult.
4x6 okay but a 4x8 would be much better and is recommended minimum.
Don't forget the hide, water clay saucer, feeding dish all take up space. The water saucer needs to be big enough he can get completely in it.
If they don't have enough room to exercise their...
If you are not brumating/hibernating him for winter then there needs to be heat day and night to keep him up. No lower then 70 at night but no lights at night just heat. Normal lights and a range of day temps of 75 to 80 along with a basking spot of 90 to 100.
Yes they can be housed indoors in winter, summer too but I wouldn't house a tort inside 24/7 but some do.
But if you are brumating it, it shouldn't be done in an enclosure but a controlled temp environment. If you just want to house it inside for winter and keep him up, not brumate then yes...
Welcome, love your sense of humor. Add mazuri tortoise pellets soaked to his diet a couple times a week and that will help him grow a bit faster and catch up to where he should be. Glad he survived and was found. Sounds like he will have a good life from here on.
For a hatchling 2x4 is fine. For an adult a yard or large room.
Most water proofing is fine to use. You just have to be very sure it is completely dry and cured and no smell left before placing tortoise inside
I don't know what that product is. However, if it's for grazing tortoises then it wouldn't hurt to add. However, you need to add a much bigger variety then just the other two pellets. Young leopards usually won't eat hay and Timothy is not a good one as it's very hard and stick like. Use...
Because they aren't open wounds you can just put him back in his enclosure on the substrate.
Do it daily until its cleared up, soaking and washing the cream off from the day before, then reapplying new. If you don't see improvements in a week then it's likely something else. But if you see...
