    Weird walk

    That's the only thing I can think of. That he had a poor diet with his breeder, got mbd and then the damage was done by the time I picked him up. God hopefully he doesn't get arthritis in later life.

    Weird walk

    It wouldn't let me upload a video sadly, so I've attached some pics which show the position of his feet

    Weird walk

    Sneezing fit

    I did wonder if it might have been dandelion fluff but I've stopped offering those and he's still doing it. He doesn't eat anything else fluffy and his substrate isn't fibrous or dusty.... Very odd

    Baby Learning to Eat?

    I have recently brought home a 6 month old Hermann's tortoise and I think he might still be 'learning' how to feed himself (or herself). He goes over to his food and tries to eat it, without much success. Basically he bites on thin air and misses his food totally, occasionally getting a small...
