    Artichoke Dries Out

    I recently found globe artichokes at trader joes and fed them to my Russian. He ate some but when I got home the leaves were like potato chips and to rough for him to eat. Any ideas? Thanks

    Plants and Gnats

    I have been growing some RT seed mix indoors recently and there seems to be a lot of gnats always around them. I often kill lots of them by hand but then more appear the next day. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Jakob

    Peeing a lot

    My RT has been peeing a lot lately but not the white urates just clear fluid that comes in a burst. Is this a problem? He seems fine besides that with no eating problems and he's been drinking water so I don't know what to think.

    UV fixture

    The fixture for my uv light (24" tube) seems to not be working. I got a new bulb and it still won't turn on. Any recommendations for a new fixture?

    If my heat lamp is turned off at night and I see some condensation on the Window, will that lead to mold overnight?

    Nail Clipping?

    Hi Everyone, Do I need to ever clip my RT's nails? He seems to almost scratch his eye when he wipes his face while eating.

    Cherryhead tortoise enclosure!

    Is the carpet to help some sort of previous health issue? Otherwise Eco earth coco coir is a great substrate. I don't know if all carpet is the best way to go.

    Sidewalk Lawn

    Can I let my tort walk around on the strip of grass between the sidewalk and the road. Stating the obvious, I will be 3 ft away the entire time. And I won't let him eat the grass because I don't know what it is.

    Beak on a possible new tort????

    I just put food on a slate rock and when they eat off it the scrape a little bit. Also, mine likes to naw on his log hide and I think it's for that reason.
