    Question About Specific Closed-Chamber Enclosure

    I would like to mention that if the enclosure you decide upon purchasing is 24" tall you will want to use a HOT5 12% bulb, because at that distance you will need the 12% to ensure proper UV to the tortoise. No Screens at all. Use a Radiant Heat Panel mounted inside on the ceiling of the...

    Our Big Sulcata Suddenly Became Lethargic with Weak Rear Legs, Reduced Appetite

    Red Sack Under Tail - New Hatchling

    Please keep soaking that baby daily! Straining of some sort must have been behind the prolapse to begin with. Better hydration will hopefully prevent future problems.

    Impaction advice please!

    I am wondering what the Vet felt about those white stone like looking objects on the X-ray. Are these uroliths or bladder stones? Perhaps your tortoise isn't impacted with poop but perhaps more of a urinary tract obstruction.

    28 Sick Tortoises please help, Bumps under Neck

    One of the reasons I believe some people don't want to expose the seller is because the seller has convinced the buyer that "he sold him healthy babies and it must be the buyer's fault." The buyer feels he is personally responsible somehow as a result of inexperience. You can feel this poor...

    Presentation at an elementary school

    If you plan on placing the tortoises on the grass, please find out a head of time from the "grounds keeper" if the grass has been sprayed with Round Up.
