    Optimus Prime explores his new outdoor space.

    Thank you, I was hoping that was the case. Brought him back inside after a long soak he ate again and went straight to sleep.

    Optimus Prime explores his new outdoor space.

    New question for today. Optimus has been going outside everyday in his new outdoor yard. First just afternoons so the shade was there. Last night we put up a canopy to offer shade in the morning/early afternoon.(I ordered two shade sails)I brought him outside this morning and he's been going all...

    Optimus Prime explores his new outdoor space.

    I already added the second railing. The cord on the outside has been moved, it's now in the air. I didn't get time to dig the trench. I wasn't expecting Optimus to go inside. That surprised me. That cord will be taken care of tomorrow. I didn't leave his side, just to make sure no nibbles on the...

    Optimus Prime explores his new outdoor space.

    Optimus Prime is finally checking out his outside space. I think he's pretty happy. He didn't stop exploring and showed no fear. He found one hiding spot under his ramp. Then off he went to check out the rest of the yard. At least I'm at the point he can be outside now and safe. Now to get...

    Thermostat placement and which heat source as main.

    @Tom, one more question for the heat mat. Do I anchor it down too?

    Here we go!

    Fence is going up. The six foot fence to the left will be coming down and the other side will be all part of Optimus Prime's yard.

    Thermostat placement and which heat source as main.

    Hi @Tom what do think is better, 1st picture or second? Originally I thought the first., since it's further away from the door. Leaving more space away from all the heat sources.

    Shell growing directly down into Tail

    Ok I'm a newbie with tortes, but I call bull on his theory that carrots are the cause. Even if the carrots do make tortes grow faster it would not cause his shell to grow wrong. But again I'm a newbie and would talk to a different Vet. I don't trust that one knows what he is talking about.

    Pulling a 35lb sulcata out of a burrow

    I guess I'm glad mine won't be able to dig down much at all. It's all shale here.

    Any suggestions on ways to make money for my tortoise

    Cutting lawn, doing chores, babysitting, dog walking. It might be better to wait until you're older unless your parents are willing to help buy all the supplies too.

    New Member - Marginated Brothers Mating?

    Welcome to the forum. Yes this is a concern. It's ok you didn't know better. I was told all sort of wrong information too. We learn and do better. Sadly you are witnessing stress and dominance issues. They are not friends, they are not happy to be in the same space. Your poor Russian torte is...

    Thermostat placement and which heat source as main.

    That was my plan for the radiator. I just wasn't sure how to set it up for the heat panel and heat mat.

    Thermostat placement and which heat source as main.

    @Tom where about do I place the thermostat for the radiator and the one heat mat?

    Thanks, I wondered about the mat placement.

    Thermostat placement and which heat source as main.

    Ok I'm at this point and need to get my butt in gear. I made Tom's double night box I know it's an either or for the heat source. But I'm doing both but mostly to have back up heat if it's needed or the other fails. I don't want to have to be without heat not even for a second. So as you...
