I'm Sarah! I'm 18 years old and I'm a college student in Florida. My house (and obviously tortoise) are located in south Florida. I have a 2 year old suspected to be female red footed tortoise named Torty. She lives in a fenced-off portion of our side yard. She has some pyramiding but she has been that way since we first rescued her when she was only around 2 and a half inches. Since she lives in such a naturally humid and warm area, I don't use an artificial heat/humidity source

Those are some pictures if the enclosure (ignore the human doofus), she has made several shallow "burrows" of sorts under the bush, and she has one under the pet carrier top.

It's great to be a part of the forum!!!

Hey, your tortoise looks great, if only that was what pyramiding looked like no one would ever be concerned, it looks great, like so little it is essentially not there.

I notice birds and tortoise lover, not tortoise and bird lover, so what kinds of birds? My first animal interest as a really young person, about three or four, was birds. Wish I could have some, but for now the ones that visit my balcony are good at bringing the fun a bird can offer.

Welcome

I just thought bird and tortoise lover had a better ring to it haha. Plus I've had my quaker parrot longer than I've had my tortoise!

Thank you for all of the warm welcomes :)
