    Lost his way

    Found this little guy in the parking lot at my job. Brought him down the street back to the woods and released him. He really didn't seem too appreciative, instead of thanking me he peed on me 😂

    4x8 Enclosure build

    Built a 4x8 table for for one of my Redfoots today. The Night Box is heated to 84F and the basking spot is about 93F. I know Redfoots don't necessarily need a basking spot but I like to provide one. The Strip light is a 6500k LED. The substrate is Cypress mulch and I lined the wood with a Tarp...

    Illness in outdoor vs indoor Torts.

    I recently moved my tortoise outside full time and I got to thinking, are outdoor Torts more prone to illness than indoor Torts, Being that they're outside and exposed to the elements vs indoors in a controlled environment?

    Growing greens in Cinder Blocks.

    I planted some greens inside Cinder blocks this weekend. Not sure if it'll work or not. Anybody else ever try this? And did it work? So far I've planted red lettuce, kale, romaine, and arugula.

    Not laying eggs.

    If my turtle is 100% gravid and has been displaying nesting behavior for almost 2 weeks but for some reason won't lay her eggs, at what point should I intervene and take her to a Vet?

    Redfoots and Urates?

    Just wondering if anybody knows why Redfoots don't produce Urates? Or do they? I've never seen any Urates produced from my Redfoots and I've been wondering why that is?

    Underwater Live Camera.

    Deerfield beach Pier in south Florida has an underwater live camera that's really cool. I often pop it up on my TV and watch it. It's like having an aquarium in your living room! From time to time you see something really cool like a big barracuda, shark, Manta ray, turtle, etc. A couple days...

    My Tortoise has a death wish. I don't know what to do.

    My juvenile Redfoot seems to have a death wish lately. She keeps flipping herself upside down and she doesn't seem to be able to right herself. She's never done this before but over the past 3 weeks I've found her upside down multiple times. She's been in the same indoor and outdoor enclosure...

    To UVB or not to UVB that is the question (Redfoots)

    Disclaimer: I posted this in the Redfoot section so people don't get confused. This thread ONLY pertains to REDFOOTS. Do Redfoots need UVB? Or do they get all they need from their diet. I've heard people say both. I've been told that no UVB will produce a disfigured tort with MBD. Then I've...
