    Wanted 2 minute or less videos of your tortoise doing something ( eating yawning, coming at you , chasing the dog , etc ). They can be serious , funny, medical treatment , building a new tort table , hide box , pen
    Growing food ,eating ,pooping, mating , or sleeping with the cat.

    I want to start a You Tube channel called " Tortoise Tales" and would love contributions from forum member.

    I will advertise and send people to the tortoise forum with each vid posted. I also plan to do educational vids on care ; lighting , heat , lights , substrata , humidity , food, breeding , mixing species , etc.

    If you have the ability to contribute a vid in this area - have at it !

    All videos will be screened by me and posted by me with credits to the maker. So here is how to do it.

    Keep vids SHORT. No more than 2 minutes. I'll make exceptions for instructional vids.

    If you do it on a smart phone. You will have to break it down into shorter segments to send to me. That's fine. I can patch it back together with my editor.

    You can download HD or bigger vids at VEMO and provide me a link to copy

    I would like the vids emailed to me for comment and editing at
    [email protected]
    In segments is okay if needed.

    If you want your name included in credits you must provide that to me. If you are selling / or a business provide me your info - website etc and I'll include it in the video. If it is legit and appropriate

    I will require a simple statement with your vid submission that just says
    " I give permission to use this video on the Turtle Tales You Tube Channel"

    Well ...... Let's see if I can make this work

    Super idea, good luck with that.
    Unfortunately, I have enough trouble with photos, so a video is probably out of the question.
    I'll see.

    Sure. I understand that many of us are not very tech savvy. But if you have teens in your family - problem solved. Hahahaha
