    Need help - Soaking a GIANT Sulcata Tort

    Funny that you posted this today. I was paging through some of my photos & up popped an old pix (4 years ago or so) when we were soaking our Sully. They can be a handful & stubborn 😀🐢

    Beak trimming

    Greetings. Yes, one can easily trim/file a tortoise’s beak at home as long as it’s not really really long & deformed. Very similar to trimming beaks on parrots, claws on cats & dogs. The hardest thing is holding onto a tort’s head during the process, not trimming too much at any one time...

    Went wood shopping this morning at our local DIY store (Lowes.) I’m building a small proper heavy duty woodworking bench & needed some lumber for the legs & base. Already have the top - a nice piece of finished butcher block countertop. But what a cluster mess of “wood”. Searched through...

    Snot?

    A bubble or two after being submerged in water is pretty normal. They need to keep their nasal passages open to breath in air. There’s no “flue season” for tortoises.

    Poorly Tortoise

    Yes. Describe or upload a pix of the enclosure & tell us more about the heating & lighting. More often than not your tort is much colder than you think. So, tell & show us more about the enclosure.

    Did my tortoise poop out a worm?

    That brown stringy thing does not look like the type of internal parasitic worm that animals/reptiles get in their GI track. This article describes the many types of worms/parasites out there https://www.thesprucepets.com/reptile-worms-1239380

    COLD DARK ROOM

    Pretty sure that it’s not a Northern Flicker. The males are very distinctive & females have that nice neck patch. Overall coloration just looks off (unless it’s a juvenile).

    Help! found mold!

    What kind of substrate are you using? How much “mold” are we talking about? Are you sure it’s mold & not mildew. Personally i wouldn't remove all of the substrate. Sounds like you have some growing right under the water dish - a nice wet warm spot. Ideal locations for things to grow. Id...
