    It seems like there are a number of us forum members who live in Louisiana. I thought it might be fun to see who lives in Louisiana and what type of torts do well here. Of course, nobody has to reveal anything they don't want to.
    I'll start: I live in Covington, LA- just across the lake from New Orleans. I have a Hermann's tort, and she seems to be very comfortable in our climate. (I do NOT allow her to brumate- I have an indoor enclosure for her in the winter).

    I live in Slidell about 20 minutes from Covington. I have one Redfoot that just made six months and is thriving in its 24/7 outdoor habitat.

    Hello!
    We live in Moss Bluff, which is just north of Lake Charles, LA. We are raising an 11 year old sulcata, 3 baby sulcatas (8 months old), 3 red foot tortoises (2 years old), 2 russian tortoises (2 & 3 year old) and 2 three-toed box turtles (1 & 4 year old).
