    OK...I give up!

    I have been beat by this little Redfoot. I have had him for 10 days. He eats like a pig, then he spends the rest of his time trying to escape. In the first 4 hours that I had him, he escaped his outside enclosure 3 times. He spends a lot of time on his back. When I first put him in the tort...

    Most of you know that I got a Redfoot tortoise to foster. My experience mostly is desert or savanna type tortoises. I was excited to have this little tortoise, it is a good example of the species, I think. The tortoise came with a name of Jupiter, I have changed it to simply Red So I fix a...

    Newbies and Sulcata tortoises...

    I keep noticing that no matter how Tom tries to indoctrinate new keepers with young Sulcata they don't seem to hear him. I believe he is well spoken and knows how to communicate. But sometimes they just don't get it...NO! Sulcata tortoises are not from the desert, nor do they live on sand. Now...

    This turtle is extremely small for his age and he is deformed in the way box turtles get, he gets bug eyed and stops eating frequently. He's a pain in the butt, but cute... He's not real good at eating big worms..ugly worm poop, how can that be good for a turtle?. Can turtles choke?

    Ginger and the glove

    This is an Eastern box turtle named Ginger. She loves snails slugs worms fruit and some times even stuff that was never food. This little turtle is hungry all the time. She's personable and outgoing. I roam around my pens lifting up rocks and blocks and plant pots looking for slugs and anything...

    For Lynn

    I have been pretty sick recently so I haven't posted any photos lately of Mary Knobbins...I have a young friend who can pick out Mary from a group of Sulcata. She loves Mary Knobbins, and Mary loves Lynn. So now that the sun is out Mary goes out her doggie door and becomes obsessive about pacing...

    Spring has sprung in Corvallis Oregon, my decorative plum tree... I have pasture grass seed planted in my Sulcata pens and all my ros trees are leafing out, the sunflowers are up and so is the 'tortoise from hell' (tfh). She has just been insane. All winter she was pacing her shed and banging...

    Winter and Mary Knobbins

    Winter locked in a shed was not kind to Mary Knobbins. She doesn't like staying in and while she gained weight like crazy, her bottom jaw cracked in half and some. We have an appointment next week for a trimming.... Look at the growth lines, comparingly smooth

    Everybody knows I post a lot of pictures, that means I take a lot of pictures to get 1 good one. I use a camera. Anyway, my animals are pretty much used to me putting a camera in their face but every once in a while, it doesn't make a good photo. About 4 months ago when Grumpyface was really...

    I foster a 90 lb 17 year old Pit Bull. He used to live with me, but he went back to his owner and I just dog sit him now from time to time. When he was living with me he had a bed and a blanket. He would get on his bed then pull the blanket around him. So cute. Roscoe knows he's not supposed...
