Your tortoise definitely looks like Kinixys natalensis. I'm not familiar with this species, but maybe someone can chime in with care information. I believe that 70-80 degrees F is preferred. They do not well over about 90F. Keep an eye on the temperatures in your enclosure.
I thought I'd take a couple pictures of our bearded dragon "Rusty" enjoying the sunshine today. Bearded dragons really do have the best temperament and don't mind being handled.
He is 5 years old now. Red translucent and 24" in length.
Signed the petition. Thank you for being proactive and trying to help make a change. It’s sad to hear that a Biology department would be so uninformed regarding tortoise care and not be willing to address the concerns.
I've kept mine in a closed chamber since it was a baby and maintained 80%+ humidity and mine is a bit bumpy as well. I had uvb lighting in the enclosure for the first 2 years and wonder if it plays a part or possibly genetics or both.
They might pull up in a cargo van and actually carrying a 250+ gallon fuel tank inside, which is rigged through the gas cap on the van. Nothing looks out of the ordinary, except the person takes a heck of a long time to fill up. They can resell the fuel cheaper than the gas station and it’s all...
It’s actually not weird. Gas station fraud is huge in Florida. I’ve had a couple different corporate credit cards compromised and used at gas stations. Last time it was four charges of $500 overnight or $2,000. They call these “pump and dumps”
Happy to see it’s doing well so far. Based on your picture, I would suggest you change the water dish to a small clay plant saucer that’s shallow and easy to get in and out of. Keep the temperature and humidity above 80. 80/80%. Good luck and you will find great information on this forum. Keep...
