    Coil bulb experiment

    I spoke with one of my fellows. He recommended that I obtain two lots with three replicates per lot or an even wider number of lots for any given light type to spread the variability around and build confidence. I will work this part out. I figure I would use an MVB as a well-accepted...

    Looking for a male hypo cherryhead

    I am in the market for a male hypo cherryhead. My hypos are of the more yellow-orange shell with orange-red scales variety, so any male I would hope to add would have to similar. I am not looking for an especially pale, "weak-toned", or washed out animal. I am not looking for a calico animal. I...

    Some zoo photos of a true giant yellow foot tortoise.

    Went to the Saint Louis Zoo today for some walking and so on. A female pancake tortoise was struggling in vain to dig a nest in a cage with no real substrate beneath the river rocks in its enclosure, so I told one of the zookeepers and she put her in a more accommodating setting so she could...

    Some of my tortoises

    Some pics are a bit old. Some are new. Sudanese female (a recent arrival and a bigger draw at the cargo hub than a tiger cub I had the good fortune of being allowed to hold). Some of my Gpp het Sunset Hypo animals. The rightmost animal has since found a new home. A couple out of...

    One of my leos.

    Despite the blown out whitening effect of my poor photographic execution at the time that obscures her head and body color, these are of one of my favorite geckos I have produced. She is a Giant line SHTCTB Tremper Eclipse I hatched in 2010, although her snake eyes faded away as she matured...

    Incubating a highly calcified egg

    Found a highly calcified egg today. Likely from a particular female Sulcata het Ivory that has been digging a lot of test nests and exhibiting related behavior. She has likely sneaked a nest or two by me this year (I have two areas of suspicion). It could also be another species, but that is...

    Anyone else have a Manouria that is a heavy grass grazer?

    I know most owners make note of their Manouria not eating much in the way of grass, but my largest M.e.p. female eats grass at roughly the same level as a Sulcata. At first, when introduced to the yard, she'd seek out broad-leaved weeds, flowers, mushroom, and various small critters (even ate a...

    Giant Yellowfoot using Sulcata burrow and a juvie Ivory

    First, my little female Ivory as she was stomping around and eating some grass. Next, one of my giant Yellowfoot females using a Sulcata burrow. She uses this every once in a while, but it is rarely opportune for me to capture it in a photograph. The actual burrow owner does not...

    Burmese Black using a Sulcata burrow

    I have not been able to catch a photographic opportunity where one of my giant Yellowfoot females has decided to make use of the Sulcata burrow, but today I found my female Burmese Black enjoying its muddiness after some rain.

    Does anyone here keep "giant" yellowfoot tortoises?

    I, being interested in the giant "Amazonian shield" or "Peruvian" or what-have-you (depending upon who spins the yarn) yellowfoot tortoises, had a juvenile sent to me a couple weeks back. Does anyone else here keep them? Any differences you have noticed other than size in comparison to...
