A very warm welcome to the forum.

Please post pics of your tort as well as his/her enclosure, and read the "Beginners Mistakes" Thread. Give your tort daily soaks in warm water so as to avoid pyramiding and dehydration.

Thank you all for the welcome. @Ray--Opo I have no idea what kind he is, we live near a forested area and he walked into our yard one day looking for refuge and I adopted him so I don't know what kind he is. But I will post a pic if you can identify him I will appreciate it.

I don't know how to send links but if you click on species and then click on redfoot,yellowfoot then click on search click more and put in keyword yellowfoot. There is probably a shorter way to get there. But that's how I do it.
