    Button’s thread

    It’s officially been one year since Button came to me! He’s definitely come out of his shell (pun intended), and runs up to greet me every time he spots me. He’s so darn cute, and I’m so happy I was lucky enough to be able to take him in :)

    Was outside taking some pictures of Button, and a butterfly appeared :)

    Russian tortoise

    Pretty much, yes. Chain stores in America sell almost exclusively wild caught russians, unfortunately

    Things you wish you knew before getting a tortoise

    Pour a big pitcher of water into the substrate, and mix it around. alternatively, try pouring water into the corners of the enclosure. What substrate are you using?

    Outdoor enclosure took about 15 minutes to set up, just including the walls and stuff, and indoor took me about a day of buying stuff and set up. Substrate took probably the most time, since I had to lug about 10 cubic feet of cypress mulch inside :p

    Macro lens pictures :)

    I got a macro lens for my phone for Christmas, and I’m having tons of fun using it. Figured I’d go ahead and make a thread for them as they’re taken. Feel free to post your own macro lens pictures!

    Huge! about 15-16 inches now. An absolute pain to lug in and out of the house, considering I'm a 5 foot tall weakling :p

    Very sorry to hear that, and I'm sorry for her loss :(

    GOOD NEWS! After a long soak in the bathtub, he managed to get it out! I gave him a few eyedrops to make sure he's alright, but he seems fine. Almost had a bit of a problem when I was bringing him back outside and rolled my ankle on the way down the stairs, but I sacrificed my knees to keep him...

    That's something I was worried about. Would you say this requires a vet visit, and if so, how urgent? I'll have turtle eye drops as soon as my mom gets home with it in an hour or so.

    Button’s thread

    He’s doing great! Sorry for the lack of updates. Over winter he certainly slowed down a lot, but that was to be expected, and he did fine. Right now he’s in his outdoor enclosure chowing away. Took some pictures with my new macro lens yesterday :)

    @Yvonne G, any idea what's going on here?

    Something in Curtis’s eye

    After trying to wash it out, it doesn’t appear to be leaving. Should I keep him in a sterile environment until it gets sorted? I think a vet visit might be in order. would it be worth buying turtle eye drops?
