Over the weekend we added 3 Radiated hatchlings to the family! They are about a month and a half, and as rambunctious as they get. So active and feeding like little monsters. We picked them up from Ryan at @Southernreptiles He was awesome and very helpful giving me a thorough walk through since I’m still very new to tortoise keeping. If he’s got something you want I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him. I look forward to watching these little dudes grow and thrive with his help and the help of this awesome forum.
I don't claim any knowledge about Florida's humidity, but I'm guessing that inside the house isn't nearly as humid as outside. You need a closed enclosure to maintain the high humidity.Hey @Tom, thanks for the feed back. Everything I’ve read says around 80-85% humidity, is that what you recommend as well?
I am in Miami, humidity down here has been around 75-85% consistently and temps in their table is around 80-82 in the cool side and 85-90 on the warmer side.
I’ve read over @Sterant captive radiated maintenance post a few times. But any advice is much appreciated. Want to give them the best possible life as I can.
Hey Yvonne, yes in my house it’s a nice cool 72 and minimal humidity lol ? I keep them outside though. Only pets my wife allows inside are her 3 African Greys and our dog. Maybe when the kids get a bit older and out grow their play room I can turn that into a tortoise room, maybe even a part of our office now. Just have to convince the boss ?I don't claim any knowledge about Florida's humidity, but I'm guessing that inside the house isn't nearly as humid as outside.
