    Tortoise was upside down in water

    I had a half log for Dexter and he 🥰 it but Dexter is 4 1/2 yrs old now and is a Sulcata. Now 37 pounds! But before he got that big he was in a 55 gal aquarium inside.

    Tortoise nightmare?

    I’m so sorry you have been given bad information. Your torts look in need of immediate help. MBD is painful and fatal. These are not healthy torts. At 2 yrs old they should be at least 20 pounds each with full rounded shells. Listen to Tom and Yvonne they have been doing this for a long...

    Suggestions for adding humidity to outdoor enclosure

    How deep is it? Is the bottom just dirt? What’s growing in it? I want to build one for Dexter this summer, he is 35 pounds and we are in South Carolina. Hot summers!! It looks like a great pond, I’d really like to pick your brain for details. Thanks Maggie
