    Hermanns Tortoise (Male), Table/Stand/Supplies - Pensacola, FL

    I am located just outside of Pensacola, FL. I have an adult male Hermans that I acquired at the beginning of November 2016 (off Craigslist, so I know nothing of his origins or age). He is now in good health, having spent 4 weeks at the vet recovering from an upper respiratory infection (that he...

    Reporting/Discussing a member

    How does one go about reporting a member/discussing concerns? Who are the forum owners/moderators? I primarily use the app so I think this information is hard to find or not even present to begin with :)

    Carolina Pet Supply

    I ordered from them and communication was poor. They eventually got all my orders together and sent out after I sent a message. I'm happy with all my seeds, and I'll order again because I love all the products offered like the seed mixes. Faster processing would be nice or an email letting you...

    Tortoise Town

    I ordered a baby Greek tort from Tortoise Town. Transaction was smooth and tort was overnighted with a hand warmer in the box. It was a beautiful tort. I soaked the tort upon opening and placed in enclosure. For the next three days, tort didn't eat, was lethargic, and didn't open eyes much. I...

    My new guy is a Hermanns, right? (also question about hiding place)

    Didn't want to start another thread (should I start one per topic?), but had some concerns about Mr. Darcy. He doesn't use his hide at all (big covered boxed side of table with opening) that is much more humid than the outer part. He generally burrows in his coconut coir substrate in the main...

    Wattage Issue

    But thanks for all the advice! I was worried and went to fix it ASAP. Was concerned about fire although it probably wasn't that much of a hazard. Probably worse for the bulb.

    Wattage Issue

    Well I went ahead and fixed my issue days ago...got the huge zoomed done rated fit my bulb and then a wire cage for the CHE. I usually buy off amazon if the price is lowest and I certainly don't ask for advice from a pet store ;) luckily this big box store was running a store wide discount so I...

    How to switch from greens to grass

    So, I've got to get my new guy over his addiction to grocery store greens, particularly romaine. It's what he's used to. I'm offering it and mazuri and grasses/weeds and he only eats the greens/lettuce. If I take the greens completely away, will he starve himself or eat the grass/mazuri?

    We have always loved using Milorganite to fertilize our yards. I am wondering if it is tortoise safe at all. It says it's organic, but I know nothing about fertilizers (except to keep torts away). Here it is if you have no idea what I am talking about: http://www.milorganite.com/

    My new guy....he is either going to be Finn or Mr. Darcy (I'm not expecting anyone to know why I'd choose that second name ha):

    My new guy is a Hermanns, right? (also question about hiding place)

    Is his tail suppose to be sideways like that? It stays that way, never straight out. Has it been damage?
