More pictures of the Fab 5!
Is that a daylily you're feeding them? It's probably fine in small amounts, but there are plenty more safe options to choose first, like hibiscus flowers.

DON'T BE CONCERNED WITH THE TITLE OF THIS THREAD. IF YOU ARE AN "OLD OWNER" WITH FUN PICTURES OR STORIES TO SHARE, PLEASE DO!

Hey new owners!

Yeah, you :) The ones with 100's of tortoise pictures on your phones and so many funny tortoise stories to tell!

As a brand new tortoise mom, I am experiencing that new-parent excitement where you want to talk about your baby All. The. Time. And I know I can't be the only one! So, I am starting this thread as a place to share the joys, the excitement, the wonders and the worries of being a new owner. And I want to hear all about yours, too!

Please feel free to post pictures of your torts, give updates on how they're doing, tell funny stories, talk about your current and future plans, and any other interesting tidbits you've picked up along the way!


Requests For Participation in this Thread:

DO NOT OFFER OR ASK FOR MEDICAL OR HEALTH ADVICE HERE.
This includes (but is not limited to): Health issues, hibernation/brumation questions, supplements, temperature/humidity/lighting recommendations, etc.

Note - If you would just like to talk about going through these issues, however, feel free!

BE RESPECTFUL AND KIND.

STAY ON TOPIC.

REFER ALL IMPROVEMENT SUGGESTIONS TO ANOTHER THREAD.


Example:

ILuvSpaceTorts - "Hi everyone! I'm thinking of building my tortoise enclosure on the moon! Here's a picture of my Redfoot, Buzz, in his astronaut suit, eating freeze-dried ice cream."

Reply - "Hi SpaceTorts! If you would be willing to make a post in the Enclosures Section, I would love to share some tips and tricks with you about your enclosure!"


Easy done :)

Get it? Got it? Good!

Let the Show and Tell begin!
Can you tell me the sex of my sulcata tortoise

Here is Mikey, he was named by my wife and 7 year old after the ninja turtle. He is about 2.5-3 months old, 2.5625" and 2.36 oz. He's just had dinner and a bath, too much energy to sit still for a good picture.
