    Egyptian Tortoise - Cloacal Prolapse?

    I was bathing my 11 mo old Egyptian tortoise and noticed his penis was out like this. It seems very red and possibly irritated? He is able to retract it back into the cloaca still. Please give any advice

    Irritated bowels?

    Yes, sorry for my poor choice of wording. It was his daily soak, and today his penis was not poking out. It was the first time I had seen him expose his penis, so I was concerned if it looked normal. Thank you for the follow up.

    Irritated bowels?

    No it’s not always out. I was bathing him and when I lifted him and checked his underside he started poking it in and out. I was under the impression that it was his penis tip. I am more concerned about the color of the anus being kind of pinkish. And wondering if it might be irritated? In the...

    Irritated bowels?

    Hey all, Is my Egyptian flashing me? And is it normal for the anus to be that pink? Poop has been solid and urates have passed cleanly, as far as I can tell. Almost 10 months old, I bathe him 3 times a week. I can provide any other info that might be important.

I just find joy in knowing I’m doing my best to provide a healthy environment for her to thrive in. I know...

    Hi! I believe I was using the zoomed 10.0 UVB T5. Since I’m in California I decided to get the tortoise natural sunlight on a daily basis instead. I think the height of the fixture was too low and I saw she wasn’t too active under the heat/light. Still new at this, she’s my first Tortoise.

    I know Egyptian Tortoises are a little harder come by, but I wish there were more posts about these guys! I removed the UV fixture from her enclosure about a month ago and i noticed she started being a lot more active, as well as sleeping outside of her shell. I think the UV I had may have been...

    Natural sunlight or UVB fixture?

    Hello I have a 5mo old Egyptian hatchling currently kept in an open table enclosure. Currently using UVB light and a heat lamp (obviously). I give her a soak outside everyday when then the sun is out, and let her run around for about 30 minutes as well. If I’m doing this already, is it still...

    After doing some research and deciding to seek out an Egyptian tortoise, I reached out to dovelett15 through email on a whim.
