Ok uh thats kinda rude but i guess???

its not rude at all, you’ve come here with sick tortoise and you don’t appear to have given any consideration to proper care.

Your torts each need to be in their own a large enclosure at least 4ft x 8ft. Torts are solitary animals, they cannot live together because they may fight and bully each other and even if they don’t the stress of the situation normally leads one tort to become ill and weak and they can eventually die.

OMG! I cannot believe you said that! Yvonne is the very least rude person who ever lived. She gave you a link to a couple of things that would seriously help you. They are called "care sheets", and they are detailed to help people like you, so read those care sheets, keep asking questions and remember THIS IS NOT FACEBOOK, do not insult, or cuss. We are here to help tortoises, and yours look seriously bad btw. So you do need help badly

The only things that live under desks are insects and bacteria. If you keep them the way you are, your tortoise are going to die or live just 1/20th of the life they could have lived. Tortoise live for decades, if captive torts die early its really is a tragedy. My advice is to rehome these tortoise.

Sorry just saw that you are only 14. We are all tortoise keepers here. All of this information is new to you and maybe that is why you feel its rude. There is an entire separate world of animal husbandry. They are LIVING beings. Tortoise require natural elements to survive: humidity, temperature control, diets of plants and animals, movement, water exposure.... When humans take an animal into their care especially wild tortoise like what you’ve got, the human is taking on the responsibility of providing those things. Keeping animals is serious. Care for the animal, not what you feel is rude to you.

You tell me what the hell is rude? You ask for advice then when everybody tells you
your tortoises are sick because of you,
your tortoises need care you are NOT giving them.
your tortoises will probably because you don't seem to realize, y0u asked for help, and argued against everything. Personally, it's YOU who are rude, I don't care how young you are, if you want help. knock off the insults and pay attention.

You know, so many come to this forum for advice. Advice given by knowledgeable, experienced people. Yet they continue to question and argue. That tortoise is in very poor shape. They need heat, they need soaking, they need light, they need to be separated. I understand asking questions of the advice in order to fully understand, but I just don't get why they come for advice and then ignore it, complain, question, and it's the animals that suffer. I just don't get it.

Wait...so tortoise care is new to you, yet you argue about the advice. I think you should pay attention to all the advice given to you so you can make a decision on what will help you, and forget about the rest. Be nice and you will get niceness back.

I have been an active participating member here since 2008, and it was that way in the beginning and has simply stayed that way. I used to insult the stupid ****s, and fight with anybody. It has taken this long for me to say, we are here for the animals, their keepers are incidental. It's hard for me to not fight, so I leave and go troll FB lol
