Hi all! I'm Becci I've have had turtles and/or tortoises nearly my whole life! Currently in my home is my husband of 23 wonderful years, my beautiful God sent 16 year old daughter, my handsome God sent 13 year old son, myself, a almost 6 year old capuchin monkey we are training to be a service animal for myself, one of the largest healthiest male female pair of Russian tortoises our reptile specialist vet has ever seen, a young set of well fed Sulcatas (yes I'm aware they get extremely BIG) plus a few small dogs we've rescued along the way! How do I keep up with all this you may ask yourself.... I've got great helpful kids first off and we do it all in routine. I've homeschooled the kids from the start so all these babies are the classroom pets! If you want it you make time for it! As a kid I always had box turtles plus whatever I'd most recently caught in the woods! The difference now is all these pets were purchased or rescued and I take care of them so so much better. They get better food, better lights, better enclosures, better vet care and I'm always doing research to see if there's anyway to improve there life anymore than it already is! Of course we have so much more available to use, for, about and to do with these tortoises than I did some 30 years ago! It's a whole new almost everything to take care of any pets with the plethora of information available to you on the internet alone....

Hi Becci, and welcome to the Forum!

Please understand that the 'plethora' of info you read on the 'net may be wrong or old. Here on the Forum, we have so many members with so much experience, that we are able to keep up with the new and innovative ideas on tortoise-keeping.

Hello Becci and Welcome. Good to have you here and I love to see some photo of all your pet animals. Looks like you have a "ZOO" there but everything are under control. Good to have you here and looking forward to hear from you again in this thread or others.
