    A few questions regarding breathing sounds

    Monty Chello is my 4.5 year old Sulcata.. sweetest guy ever. After owning him for four months..I hear some breathing sounds and I can see his head move when he breathes off and on. It seems a bit labored sometimes so I’m trying to diagnose a reason. I hear temp and humidity is usually the...

    Temperatures!

    Ya our winters add cold .. snow and ice off and on. The home is around 8 x 8 inside. We keep it at 80 on one side and 86-90 on the other side (under the fan). It can be cooler near the flaps on the door when we keep it open but there is plenty of warmth in there. I struggle keeping it humid...

    Temperatures!

    Thanks .. we are happy with it. And it looks super cute now that I’m gardening the top.. having the chance to do it all again though , I would have made the door bigger. The human door opening is 4 ft tall.. so perfect for my 4 and 6 year old. I’m lucky, he poops outside mostly and I peak in on...

    Temperatures!

    I struggled with understanding all the temp info also. My sully Chello is about 15 pounds - 4 years old. We build a kind of hobbit house covered in soil and grass to insulate it well and use an oil heater. (I posted it all before but don’t know how to share it) It seems to work well for...

    Chello's ins and outs

    Hello all. My 4 yo Sully (20 inch) is loving his new out door house and yard. He has an insulated home (buried) and the plastic strips on his door for easy entrance / exit. It still cold outside off and on here in Virginia (USa), so I have slowly been leaving the doors open on 'borderline' cold...

    Outdoor hobbit (Sully) hut

    Hey there! So, right now we are in Virginia..and its been super rainy and the temps vary. Chello can go out when its sunny and warm enough. (I'm still waiting to hear people's opinions about whether they will go inside when they need to or if I need to regulate. He wants to go out for hours...

    Outdoor hobbit (Sully) hut

    TOM.. we are enjoying him so much! So, when I went to see him this am... he was lifted up on the door, such that he kinda plopped out when I opened it. This is the cool spot in the house. It was reading 75. The other spots were 80 and 85. I gather he was hot? He also weirdly seems more 'alive'...
