    New Leopard tortoise group!

    I'm happy to see these photos, sorta bring a bit more light into the day. I notice from the recent photos, where they are in a tub, that the left most one also has much less flaring on the rear marginals. And Rosy is the largest, so I'm inclined to say that one is female, the others are...

    Respiratory Infection - some advice

    It's not really appropriate for me to diagnose any health issue when I've not done a full owner interview/animal inspection. All matters that can cause a runny nose are in that article, that Vet - Dr. Boyer, is saying alot of the time it is mycoplasma. Not all the time. I know of cases where...

    Any of you RSA folks ever see if your tortoise eats this...Bulbine frutescens

    I have subsequently found this plant and offer it sometimes to pancakes and they seem to have no particular like or dislike of it. My leopards will eat it without hesitation.

There are herbicides that are selective enough...

    DIY Cages: Critter Condo [48"X24"X24"]

    Not bad for a simple PVC cage. A better size than most of the Animal Plastics for the price, but not exactly plug-n-play either.
