I have a few questions on what I can do to make sure I am giving them the right care. Also if you have any suggestions or recommendations please feel free to tell me how I can improve.
They should never live as pairs. Groups can work, but not pairs. Separate them ASAP, or get one or two more.They are just babies maybe 3 months... what age should I separate them? I just put them in I was cleaning out the tank but the windows do fog up when kept closed
That is good advice Lyn! Anaheim is here in Southern California and is an excellent climate for housing adult leopard tortoises outside year round. That is why I thought @hydro708 might like the option of adding one or two more, rather than maintaining two indoor and two outdoor enclosures.Hi and welcome,
The replies you've had are from some of the most experienced keepers here on the forum so following their advice and the caresheet that Tom linked will help you get things right.
The only thing I'll add is that if you do get more torts rather than separate the 2 you have remember that the more you have the more space they need.
Ask as many questions as you like there's always someone to help.
Babies do better inside all the time. I don't do outside time for babies for more than an hour a couple of times a week. I've done multiple side-by-side experiments with groups of clutchmate babies to confirm this. Babies do MUCH better when left inside in their closed chamber most of the time. I like more and more outside time for them as they gain size, and outside full time with a heated, insulated shelter as adults.Thank you everyone I appreciate you taking time and helping me out. The only reason inside is it been cold for California and they are just lil babies they do outside for few hours a day and come in for the night. I am looking for some more babies just looking for someone who I can trust. When I do get some more how long should I keep them separate before putting them together?
