Although she didn't have the best start. Before I got her she lived in a tiny polystyrene box with a desk lamp that was so close her shell was burned and she was living off iceberg lettuce could that have impacted her growth?
Robin is 5 years old this year and it's looking more likely to be female. Any ideas on roughly what size she should be round about now? I know it's different for each tort but just an average would be great
So it has been a LOONG time since I've been on here. A lot of personal stuff going on starting university and the usual things that crop up. Robin was weighed today to 92g and is only measuring approx 8.5cm in length that's just the shell. S/he is turning 5 this year I'm just wondering is this...
So 2 days ago my partner told me Robin had managed to get some substrate in her eye. She ensured me she had got it out and gave Robin a soak. Today I notice she wasn't opening one eye but there was some calci powder round it. I've rinsed it off and gave her a nice long warm soak. Will this be ok?
Ok this is probably a stupid question my mother in law decided to give Robin my hermann some cooked fish confusing her for a turtle. She loved it! Is it harmful? I know that in the wild she wouldn't get fish so any pointers?
Not updated in a while truth is nothing's really been happening. Still no further for a sex for Robin still too small however Robins growth line is coming on GREAT! S/he is now at 70g. Decided not to hibernate this year maybe next time anyway here's a few photos to keep anyone who wants a nosey...
