    COLD DARK ROOM

    I had my real deal biology exam on Thursday and I feel confident that I did well. The last question was about MBD in tortoises which was perfect, I wrote so much:D

    yellow foot trying to bite itself?

    I adopted a Tunisian tort that did that when I first got her, she stopped eventually but I’m 100 percent sure she’s got some neurological issues.

    Russian hatchling urine is clear...is this normal?

    You know, I had the exact same concern when I saw clear pee almost a year ago. I want to congratulate you on having hydrated torts, keep it up!:)

    COLD DARK ROOM

    I think in snakes it is a little different, they usually yawn after eating as they are realigning their jaw. Torts are adorable when they yawn:D

    My Tort is a bit big

    On the hunt

    I also recommend tortstork, I can’t order from him unfortunately since I’m in the UK but he is a great breeder.

    My Tort is a bit big

    Your tortoise looks great! One thing I noticed about your enclosure is the substrate, I may be incorrect but it contains little white specs which can be harmful to your tort. These can be ingested by your tort aswell as a load of soil. I would switch to coco coir or orchid bark perhaps:)

    What Reptiles You've Had, Have, And Want...

    The boas I was referring to were in awful conditions before they came to the RSPCA. Understandably they are not too happy around us due to that. Regular handling sessions work well but you may still get bitten as I have:D

    If she wanted to strangle you she would want to get a boa. Out of all the snakes I’ve worked with, boas still make me a little cautious. One minute they are all friendly, flicking their tongue and all is well, next thing you know you feel little teeth in your arm as it starts to constrict. Gotta...

    What Reptiles You've Had, Have, And Want...

    Not yet, just Boigas and vipers. I would like to one day even though it comes with a lot of risks. A good friend of mine works with elapids in South Africa, this includes the infamous black mamba.
