Do you approve of sweaters / turtle toppers for your tortoise? Why or why not?


Personally, I love them. Jasper has several for every occasion and he quite likes them. I don’t ever keep them on for more than 20 minutes at a time, and only use them a few times a month, but they’re cute and he seems to like them. I’m interested to see what everyone else thinks

These are just a few of Jasper’s that I got on Etsy :)

They are freaking adorable!!! But like you it would probably just be on long enough for a couple photos.

Oh, yes. I think they’re a fine occasional thing. It also depends on your tortoise’s temperament and personality. Definitely a personal decision, I’d say.. but Jasper is absolutely adorable! :<3:

I can't imagine your tortoise would actually like them. I think he probably doesn't notice them. They do look very cute, though. Charlie's favorite article of clothing is a coat of mud.
Any pics of Charlie in the latest tortoise mud fashion styles? [emoji16]

I still say they are fine. Any owner dumb enough to leave them on long enough for them to interfere with their absorption of heat/uvb has a tort with much bigger problems. That would be the same owner who feeds them iceberg lettuce and a ton of fruit with a 20 gallon tank.

Check this one out...even as a guy, I can't help the word "awww".

I think their hilarious, I love seeing the pictures.
If you think he enjoys it and that makes you happy then go with it.
Just don't over do it.

Awww, how cute!!! My Ernie has a few of them, she doesn't mind them, but she's only got them on for a few mins for photo ops, then I take them off her.

Why would he want to eat a mushroom?
The other day I was wiping out my tortoises enclosure with a damp washcloth. Just then my parents came over and I dropped everything to put the dog in the kennel so he would not jump on them. When I went back to what I was doing I did not realize I left the washcloth in his enclosure. He was trying to eat the washcloth. Why would he try to eat the washcloth? I think they're just curious...

One time I was holding Vlad in my lap when he was about 5 pounds and he took a taste if my t-shirt [emoji16]
