    Tortoise stuck on back - desperate for an help

    Welcome to the forum. More information & photos would be helpful. What species is your tort? How big is your garden & is it enclosed? What is in your garden that your tort is climbing & is there a wall it is trying to crawl over? Like I say, more info would be helpful.

    My dog and tortoise

    Welcome to the forum. I think if you read thru various threads, the general consensus on the forum is that it is better for your tort's health & well-being to keep dogs away from your tort. There are lots of pictures of shell damage done by dogs to tortoises even by the most trusted dog...

    tortoise going camping

    You misunderstood sarcasm meant. I moved to Oregon from Fresno Calif. 15 years ago. Since then...every year I drive animals from Corvallis Oregon to Clovis Calif. 800 miles one way, generally 2 or 3 times a year. And bring animals back. I took a bird to San Benito Texas and brought back...

    And when elephants pee, it sounds like somebody's taking a shower.

    What a beauty!! I'd be going "Mom, can I keep him?" But I know better now. You're an awesome brief encounter!!

    No, sadly not in today's envronment. But I'm all for an eye-for-an-eye in the absence of law & order.

    New owner of THREE Red-Footed Tortoises

    Torts & puppy dogs are not a good thing. There are all kinds of threads on the forum about dogs chewing up torts. I'd read a little.

    In the neighborhood I lived in, a couple of people put up little wood cabinets with the theme, "Take one. Drop one off." But like you, I realized no one wants to read books written in the 90's on murder mysteries. Fortunately, I discovered a bunch I hadn"t read in 25 yrs in packing to move, so...

    I will say that in today's environment, the DA's opinion is going to be even if the thieves are caught, he/she will not prosecute.

    Hello I'm new and looking for answers

    He/she's a cutie. I'm awful at guessing, & your tort might be too young to tell yet. Since this was started as someone else's thread, you might want to post this in a new thread as a new question.

    Hello I'm new and looking for answers

    Welcome to the forum. The proper care sheet mentioned up in comment #6 is what you should read and cone back & ask questions. You can hopefully stop the "pyramiding" by implementing the care mentioned throughout the sheet & hopefully stop further pyramiding in your tort in the future. Please...

    Since he's barely aware of much, not surprising. IMHAO.

    So sad & disgusting. There is no reason for this assault on the tort or its owner. And to then have your tort run over by its would-be kidnappers is the worst. I can only hope Karma will get these guys & soon!!

    Can't wait to see what you put on him when he's 7 yrs old. Great idea!!
