    RIP Daisy

    Yes, that part never goes away, I think especially with tortoises. Probably most keepers believe that their tortoise is going to outlive him/her. When it doesn't go that way, there's a feeling of just wasn't supposed to be like that! And all that does is add more stress over...

    Anybody know about the Bolson tortoise?

    How cool! I hope the project in New Mexico succeeds. I asked at the CTTC meeting tonight about the Bolson torts that used to be at the Living Desert. Unfortunately the man who had worked there the longest started at the zoo after the Bolsons were known to be there. He had never heard of them.

    Anybody know about the Bolson tortoise?

    One of the old threads said that the Living Desert here in Palm Desert had 2 breeding pairs of them. I'll be at the Living Zoo this evening for a CTTC meeting. I'll ask the employees that attend if they are still here.

    I just found this and have never heard of these before? Do we know them by a different name?

    Are Aldabra tortoise legal in ny?

    Actually, the question is not "are they legal?" The question is "will an aldabra be in a healthy environment in upstate NY? Does the climate even come close to what an aldabra can thrive in?" The answer to both those questions is no. Aldabras thrive in FL, hot and humid. They are really...

    Petco Tortoises

    You could try talking to the manager of the store. You didn't say if the 2 torts were in the same enclosure together. If they were, the one scratching could easily be being bullied by the other. If bullying like that continues, that tort will die. The manager doesn't want that, so you could...

    How long can you store tortoise poo water outside for?

    I would think that it will grow enormous numbers of bacteria. And if you don't seal it up, the stench is going to knock you over. However, if you have a strong enough stomach, the bacteria might be good for your plants. I'm just guessin'.

    Why Don't The Planets Appear to be Spinning?

    There are 2 reasons why you can't see them spinning. The 1st is because many of them are like our moon. The moon revolves around Earth, but it always keeps the sunny side toward us. We never see the back, dark side of the moon. The 2nd reason is that the Enterprise, or any starship, matches...

    Walking Stick

    I really enjoy these and praying mantises. How do all their innards fit into such a narrow space? Saving a praying mantis from an evil boy got me into a fistfight in 2nd grade. Some things are just worth fighting for! :)
