    On the hunt for a large closed chamber.

    Thank you Tom. That's quite the price cut. Glad you knew where to look. Children are my favorite reptile to keep 😂

    On the hunt for a large closed chamber.

    I'm looking to expand my CH's winter enclosure. I want to see if I can find an 8x8 closed chamber, but so far all I've found is 8x4. Do y'all know where I can find one that large? Thank you.

    RIP Daisy

    I am so sorry for your loss. TB isn't easy and I am sure she gave it her all. Wishing you and Jacky peace.

    Is this tortoise actually ill?

    It's sad because that's the exact advice I took for my baby and a decade later, he's not smooth. It's amazing how some people can be so stuck in their ways, even with better knowledge being accessible.

    A Thank You from Marty and Me

    I just wanted to write this to thank you all. From the last month I've been on this forum, you've changed all of our lives. Marty is living a better life and little baby Juniper will be growing up with the best care because of y'all. I am so happy I can provide better care for them than all the...

    Tortoises, pizza, oh my....

    Your heart is certainly in the right place, but I don't actually think it is feasible. It's going to be extremely expensive, probably more money than most of us on the forum even have combined. I really do think Yvonne and Gomberg have it right. I wish you all the luck in the world, but I doubt...

    How do cherry head markings change as they age?

    This is how my 10+ year old looks. He is on the smaller side for CH and he's really orange.

    Fern id

    There are these ferns in my weed garden that my hatchling got in a bite before I stopped them. Plantnet said its probably either ebony spleenwort or Ladder fern. Does anyone know for sure?

    Has anyone used these

    My honest two cents is not to keep them indoors. I think it's so much easier to keep them outside. In a backyard, you usually have more space to mess around with. It's also better for them as a whole. Natural lighting s do wonders. Now granted, no idea what your situation is with your yard, but...

    Healthy Plants to Grow in NC climate

    I am starting to get into some botany and I am trying to find some good plants to grow for my tortoises. I know about hibiscus and prickly pear, I just want to be able to provided a varied diet with the least grocery store trips as possible. The area I live is a 7-8 hardiness zone (depending on...

    Hello, I am New.

    Hello Tom. Thank you so much for both the compliment and for the care guide you made. I read it and it's wonderful. The table is a leftover from when Marty was a hatchling when tortoise tables were what I was recommended at the time. Probably why he is pyramided, at least partly. Once Ian blows...

    Hello, I am New.

    Yes I do know, thank you. I have a large enough yard and home for both of them to be kept separate luckily. I am definitely going to try and figure out a nice close chamber build as I don't want to make the same mistakes I did with my cherryhead when I was younger. Thank you for the warm welcome.
