    Snake plants for the Indian Star Tortoise?

    I recently planted a snake plant in the enclosure for our Indian Star Tort. He likes to nibble it here and there. But I read on the tortoise table website that it should be fed in moderation, should I remove the plant from the enclosure then?

    Aloha from Oahu! I am looking to add a Star Tortoise to our home and seem to be having a very difficult time finding one- at least that isn't a scam. Any suggestions for finding a reliable breeder who either is located in Hawaii or is willing to ship to Hawaii?

    Tortoise Not Pooping when Soaking

    Hey guys, I have 2 Star Tortoise. I tried to soak them in Lukewarm Water but the girls are not pooping. I’ve checked their enclosure and seen their poop. Any tips on what foods to give to make them poop? I’m worried they’re keeping their poop inside their body
