See what I meant !

Tried to talk to the keepers but to no improvement - being checking every few months when I go visit with my kids . Even tried telling WRS thru another keeper but they just "act blur" .

im confused....the humidity is high enough to give sulcata shell rot, but the radiata still gets piramiding?

All kept in different enclosure !

This sulcata is a recent import ( notice the relatively new growth in darker shade of brown )

The radiated could be " donated " by keepers ( ex- pets ) thus the uneven shell !

As in Singapore you could only keep RES and Asian box turtle ( I think Chinese soft shell included ) legally all else chelonian are illegal .

Split them up at last......[SMILING FACE WITH OPEN MOUTH AND COLD SWEAT]
U're using only UVB coil bulbs? Do u provide them with basking light?
I have the UVB150 13w coil bulb.. but i didn't use it as i was afraid it might cause irritation to my stars.
I'm also using the same terrarium as u. I place my uvb and basking light just on top of the top cover (lying on the mesh).

On a semi-related note, can you use organic, virgin coconut oil? I was curious, since my box turtle can be housed in coco coir, if I can rub some coconut oil on her shell. It has great benefits for humans and has antibacterial properties, so I was just wondering if it would be ok or not?

I only ask because no matter how humid and hydrated I keep Flash, her shell always seems really dry..?
Do you give her daily soaks in warm water? That's what I do with Oli, due to the fact the climate here is a extremely dry one both Summer and Winter alike.
