    some progress on saturn

    So my baby tortoise, is growing but slowly, which is normal for a tortoise, i think.. Hes gets soaked once a day for 30 minutes in luke warm water. He hates it. He eats like CRAZY! We feed him lots of dandelions, prickly pear cactus, and even the fruit sometimes, when we forget to soak him (...

    Forgot (Tortoise left without food and water)

    I went away for a while and was paying my neighbor to watch my animals while I was gone. I have a lot of animals but she forgot to feed and give my tortoise water. I was gone for atleast 1 week and he didnt eat or drink. Im really worried. He doesn't seem like hes acting unusual. But I still worry.

    New sulcata

    It makes perfect sense. They just don't work together. Its not good for them because bullying happens. Don't risk it. Trust me.. I did and one of them got sick. And I had to rehome it.

    what (in other words, the Hootchy Cootcy Dance!)

    I named this "what" because that was my reaction to this. I always soak saturn everyday for 30 minutes or more in warm water. I always give him a lil shell scratch too, (on the top) I scratched above his tail and he started wiggling (like almost looked like he was shaking his butt) what is...

    Sulcata coloring

    I think u should just love them for their adorb lil personalities. Not their colors. Mine has VERY thin lines, when we first got him now his lines are huge and DARK. I think it just goes with age. I dont think you can really predict it.
