    For being at least a 100 years old the oak wood is going to be an easy fix. So far all I've done is used a wood cleaner and wiped it twice with golden pecan stain and it looks much better already. Picture 001.jpg Picture 002.jpg I don't want it to look new when finished, Just clean.

    @Yvonne G

    hello My Lady and thank you for looking for me in FB and messaging me here.

    I was just very busy due to the US/China tread war because we are moving our production out of China and looking for a place to put it. So I visited Philippine couple times, and scheduled to visit Malaysia in mid-Feb and possible Vietnam.....I know I not suppose to talk about politics but this is the only thing that I agree with Mr. Trump.

    I also have some good news to report, which is we successfully hatched 5 Eastern Leopard tortoise babies out of 6 eggs, which my wife is so, so stoked about it. On top of that, one of the Burmese star eggs hatched one weeks ago that makes my wife even more excited. One female Rediated also laid 5 eggs........Some excitements!

    I will try to come back as much as I use to but I need to have time and my mind are not fully occupied by my work. It's going to be a very tough 2019 for me, I need the strength and wisdom from above no matter where my production may goes or how long it may goes, let me be peaceful and grateful for everything.

    Love you Yvonne and all and talk to you all soon.

    Okay, so I am finally doing it.


    This spring, I am making a year round tortoise pen for my Russian tortoises. They will hibernate and everything. I was a little afraid to do this, but I think they’ll be happier. And when they lay eggs, they will hatch in the ground. That way, only the strongest tortoises hatch, just like in the wild. Most food will be the constant supply of weeds.

    It's not easy to allow them to brumate outdoors here in our country. The winters are too wet for them to live through it brumating outside. So a year round enclosure or yard is great, but my advice is to box them up in the winter and brumate them in a cool, dry place out of the wet weather.
