    Species and health!

    My vet years ago sent me home with that, but Neosporin worked better and quicker, it's a very fast fix.

    Species and health!

    This is a type of greek tortoise and I would agree it's an early shell rot normally seen with red/yellowfoots. Scrub it with an old toothbrush to clean it well, splash some hydrogen peroxide on it, and rinse after an hour or so. Let it dry completely, and put Neosporin on it, and overnight the...

    Our offer to swap this tortoise out stands to this day, I will pay all the shipping to replace it. My son misunderstood which enclosure I told him it was in, I had one separated for this shipment but he took from the wrong enclosure only knowing it was a hermanns tortoise. We have a lot of...

    Yearling Testudo graeca ibera, "Ankara" locale

    Apologies for my extended absence from the Forum, I do want and try to get on here, but as was said, I get tired of arguing my beliefs against a few people that are set in their ways and disregard my direct experience in tortoise keeping, really don't have time to go back and fourth, but I'll...

    Hatchling Russian not thriving...

    Just catching up on this, I hadn't heard that this one was struggling until today. It's clearly not doing well now, but I'd like to see the setup(s) and start there, there's almost always something a little off in a setup when a baby doesn't do well like this. Personally, I'm not really someone...

    "Testudo Mix"

    Right now we aren't shipping to Canada at all, too many shipments get sent back after disappearing for a month, after we have refunded it, or a customer has called their bank and disputed the charge because of it, or they hit the customers with a customs tax bill, and half the customers get mad...

    adult Russians from tortoise supply

    They are wild caught/imported and on the description on the website it says that they are. Sorry if you missed it. Here's a cut/paste from their page on the website: These adult Russians tortoises are originally wild caught and imported. Because of this, they have some minor dings and...

    Bad tortoise experience

    I appreciate the responses on this. Like I said, I have been unable to find any B grade tortoises shipped to Texas (where the OP profile says she's from) and none of the only names I have to search on.... If a tortoise we shipped actually did die within 2 weeks and was in a proper setup, we...

    Bad tortoise experience

    I was just made aware of this thread (thanks)! Looking through my orders, I don't have a "Sara" or a last name "Cheri" in many many months.... I went through all orders to Texas in the last few months, and there was none with a B grade (split scute) tortoise at all. I have never been contacted...

    Facebook giveaway contest!

    We have started doing periodic giveaway contests on our facebook page to anyone that has purchased a tortoise in the past from us. The last contest only ended up with 21 entries, I think, and the winner got a box full of tortoise stuff probably worth almost $100, shipped free. We are trying to...

    Exploding Eggs (Hermann’s)

    We do about 60% water weight ratio to dry vermiculite (600g water to 1000g vermiculite, for example). A lot of our hermanns hatch out of the ground, however, and aren't in a controlled incubation by us. They should hatch around 65 days (temps in the 85-89 range), but after about 80-90 days, bad...

    Raven Warning

    It's a property I bought in 2010 when the market crashed, I got it for nothing. It's about 5 miles from my house in a straight line. The neighbors up there are very aware of things in my area, and once a month will call me and tell me there's a truck lingering around out there, and they'll go...

    Raven Warning

    I don't think they'd fall for scarecrows, they will land nearby if I'm there moving around, I don't think they'd care if there was a scarecrow. I just won't leave smaller tortoises exposed like that, after rodents in 2017, coyotes in 2018 and now this, I'd be embarrassed to admit how many...

    Raven Warning

    Saw a thread earlier about birds being a problem or not, but figured I'd post this as a new thread rather than a reply to that (which was a few weeks old) so it was a little more visible. Probably a month ago, I bought a few Southern Ibera Greeks from a breeder we all know in the Northeast. I...

    How early can you see pyramiding?

    Clarification here, this tortoise was from early 2018.... I don't remember giving you a hatch date, but on the website it says they hatched in early 2018. Maybe you thought it said early 2019? It's a year old or more now.
