    Black sulcata?

    Could possibly be a case of hyper melanism, which would be awesome news, as I think it’s safe to say it’d be awesome to see black sulcatas Or, Could be faked with paint or something or fade away with time, we’ll have to wait and see

    Reptile basics heater (silly but I need help with assembly)

    Oh okay I understand now, I’m using a plastic Walmart tub, and I was thinking, “how am I supposed to screw this in? But I realized that I just need to get some metal nuts to secure the screws, so yeah, thank you.

    Do you have one that you can show me? I’m basically mentally handicapped and can’t figure this out because it’s not heating up so I gotta be doing something wrong

    New Mojave tortoise owner, do I hibernate, keep outdoors/UVB light indoor? Help

    Do you have a license to own this tortoise? It is illegal in California to own a desert tortoise as they are federally protected.

    Heating questions, not the first wont be the last

    Looking to take in a tortoise, DFW area

    I live in northeast Texas, the DFW area. I’m willing to take in a tortoise of any kind, be it hatchling or adult. Seems erratic, but i have plenty of space, and would love to give a great home to one. I’d be willing to come pick up if within a reasonable distance, we could always negotiate. Look...

    Heating questions, not the first wont be the last

    Strange, Tom said that even with the radiant panel that they would still need a basking light, idk what to do... And where did you purchase your panels at? I wanted to order from reptilebasics but they’re sold out of the ones i need.
