    Enclosure ideas

    I've been puzzled for a while on how I should do the additional 50 gallon tub to add on to her current one. I was thinking a different environment encouraging exploration and anything to give a natural rainforest feel. I think going the tropical theme would be more pleasing. My goal with this is...

    Pyramiding and High Humidity

    I have to say that I'm completely in awe. I honestly didn't think I would see any improvement this fast. When I got Nyx she was pyramiding. The breeder keeps his hatchlings dry in which all were pyramiding. I've had her for about 5 weeks now and she has gone through several growth spurts and her...

    Hibernating tortoise?

    I keep seeing all these posts about tortoises wanting to hibernate. This is very confusing to me as I didn't think reptiles hibernated but instead brumate. Am I correct in this as hibernating is a mammalian behavior and brumation is reptilian behavior?

    Conversations with your kids

    I'm washing dishes and my 3 year old runs up to me very proud, excited, and disgusted and tells me that he had pooped in the toilet and it was big and gross. Then we both get excited. Oh the joys of fatherhood!

    Hatchling behavior question

    So, I've noticed that Nyx has been digging a bed area by the basking rock. I have orchid bark over coco coir which is about 6 inches deep. She doesn't burrow in it, but digs up the bark to lay in a divit in the coir. It's just deep enough so she fits comfortably in it. It reminds me of how...

    dog training advice needed

    My wife's great Dane is about 5 months old and we believe he was sold to us around 4 weeks old and was told he was 9 weeks old. His behavior is very uncontrollable. He constantly mouths, jumps, bites, all the stuff puppies do, but he gets so excited it interferes with his learning. His behavior...

    Tortoise and the hare

    So, i have watched the tortoise and hare races and even though they are meant for fun and everything I often wonder if the straight line course actually puts the rabbit at a disadvantage. Most of the time I'm watching the rabbits trying to see what's over the dividers instead of running the...
