I believe when you have that many, you've gone from owning a mere group, to looking after an entire herd. They're quite a fine looking herd as well.

Any pics of your T8 setup, I have one coming and was just curious how yours looked with heating and lighting? Also is there a website where you went to pick up these guys or you just PM someone on here?

I've purchased from a few members on here like @coastal @zovick @deadheadvet and Jay Russo
All great people to work with.

Coastal has a website: www.mad4rads.com

I'm actually changing out their turf right now so here's an unfinished shot. I opted for the 20 inch screen to set my MVB and CHE lamps on and I put in a HO lamp on the right side. I have a misting system in there too to keep a cooler moist side.

Did you quarantine these guys at all and are all 9 housed together or did you split them up on size?

I keep the larger ones in separate housings than the smaller ones. I buy pretty much from the same people that all do their checks and such so unless it's a completely different bloodline and/or has been in someones hands that I dont usually deal with, they would have an extended quarantine.

I have tried to contact a few members in regards to the CBW permit.

Could someone msg me with some tips.on how to fill out the permit request

Would like to get a couple radiated tortoises , problem is the best looking I have seen are in Florida. I'm in TX.

Any help would be great.

Rads look beautiful. Good work.

@8james8 Did you have these scoped yet? I never saw an update indicating any results. Curious to know how it came out for ratios??

Love your tortoises. Great coloring and great growth. Congrats!!!

I have not scheduled it yet. Originally I planned to do it last spring but I had a few opportunities to add bloodlines I did not have so I jumped on that and pushed it back to this year. I have one baby that is not at the 120g steady weight suggested goal so I'm just waiting for it to reach that point :)

One I schedule it I am going to post a pic and try to get a few guesses from folks. I think it will be a lot of fun.
