Was outside with the group and snagged some pictures. @allegraf the mothers are in parentheses.
Mimosa (Rambutan @cdmay - I recall you had stock in this tortoise)

Please find and critique this draft care sheet. I have included a handful of people at the top that I recall conversing with fairly regularly on TFO prior to my previous hiatus or...
So we recently moved and I just completed my tortoise enclosure for my 4 redfoots. My wife accidentally plugged the vacuum cleaner into one of the power supplies that was operating the CHE's of my Herpstat 4 and wreaked that output. I contacted Spyder Robotics...
Caring for redfoots in the northeast means I have to keep them indoors 4-6 months a year. Setting up high humidity, sunrise/sunset, and good ambient temperatures for 4 tortoises has always been a challenge - even with a closed chamber enclosure.
Roughly 5 years ago, I invested in a Herpstat 4...
It’s still unseasonably warm in NY so we’re outside enjoying it!
My tortoises love the leaves, each year I pile them into the enclosure for enrichment.
Keeping them inside during cold weather means I’m constantly battling shell rot. While cleaning Rafiki up today I noticed how colorful she...
I rent, so investing in permanent landscaping is not attractive or possible for me. Instead I've been using portable pet fencing; works great!
I'll spruce it up this weekend. For now this allows me to come home from work and put the tortoises out for...
A couple weeks back we had a heated post on the Redfoot forum and I was pretty callous with my response, though I do not regret it. Despite the utility of stating my profession in my response, I'm slightly embarrassed I did so. It felt high-horse and arrogant. I think humility is a wonderful...
We were outside today and Coagi was dogging my other two large tortoises (Rafiki is a confirmed egg layer, Mimosa displays very female-like characteristics). Coagi repeatedly would follow the other tort, sniff their rear intently, then come around to their face and bob his(?) head.
I ordered a bunch of seeds and cactus pads from Carolina Pet Supply on June 05. The seeds were promptly delivered however the cactus pads (back ordered) have been a different story.
I have called on four separate occasions spanning the three month wait for a 1lb box of cactus pads. The first...
First clutch ever! I suspect Rafiki laid the remainder of her eggs, found these 6 in their hide today. This is roughly 3 weeks after she or one of my other three laid a single egg.
No mature males in my group, I think they're all female bit mandarin is still too small to tell.
