    Tortoise threw up :(

    Thanks everyone for the reply! Yes he actually has been eating and all and actually seems to be in pretty good spirits! I think maybe he did eat too fast or perhaps my brothers didn't cut the peppers properly. He has also pooped since then, but I will be keeping a very close eye on him for the...

    Tortoise threw up :(

    Hello, My Sulcata tortoise Milo who is about 2 years old threw up last night and gave me and my family quite a scare :(. I have done some reading on why tortoises throw up and have come across everything from spoiled food to parasites and I was wondering if anyone had any advice as to why this...

    My Tortoise is scraping his mouth when he eats!

    Thank you 3 for your advice! I will be giving that a shot and let you know how it goes! :) But @Dorrie Siu, his beak is still at a reasonable length so I think it is just the scraping that is the issue for now, but thanks for asking!

    My Tortoise is scraping his mouth when he eats!

    Hey guys, Thanks a ton for all of your replies! I will post a picture of his mouth as soon as I get the chance to do so. But as for more information, he scrapes with the sharp part of his forearms to tear the food when he eats (whatever I happen to be feeding him). As for where the bleeding is...

    My Tortoise is scraping his mouth when he eats!

    Hi guys, My 1-2 year old Sulcata tortoise (Milo) keeps scraping his mouth when we feed him and it is causing him to bleed it is so bad! :( He has been in good spirits though, still east ferociously and walks around a lot! I would not say it is making him sickly it just looks like it really...

    Eye infection/irritation advice?

    Hey everyone, I have a 2 year old Sulcata named Milo and this morning when he woke up he was walking in his enclosure with both of his eyes being red, swollen, and having some tears on his face. Needless to say I was shocked and did plenty of reading on the topic. Since this morning his eyes...

    Sulcata "squealing" or "squeaking": CONCERNED

    Hey there fellow sulcata owners, I am the owner of a hatchling suclata named Milo and my little guy is about a year old. Recently we have given Milo some changes to his environment because he was in some less than proper substrate as well as too cold in his tank, but those problems have since...

    Potentially Sick Sulcata Milo!

    He has actually been doing a bit better the last few days and I think changing the bedding has helped a bit even though you are right I will probably change it again to help with humidity. He also has pooped today so whoohoo! Doesn't look like it was a blockage I think he may have been...

    Potentially Sick Sulcata Milo!

    Thank you for all of the advice guys I really appreciate it! I have gotten a chance to check out that feed from Tom and it has a lot of great advice. I think the first thing I will do is alter his enclosure. And certainly bathe him a bit more. I would love to hear some more opinions and...

    Potentially Sick Sulcata Milo!

    Do you have a link to Tom's thread perhaps? I would love to check it out! But he is currently housed in a 50 Gallon tank. I am not sure what his Humidity level is but my brother has not been bathing him too frequently so my first thought is that it is a problem with dehydration. His tank temp...

    Potentially Sick Sulcata Milo!

    My little brother has a Sulcata tortoise named Milo that we have had for about 8 months and he is just about a year old. My brother had not done proper research before purchasing him and I have recently done research into tortoises of his kind because we think he may be sick. Up until today we...
