I received your email request as well. Thank you for that as I don't check my profile messages as much as I do conversations here. I did send the info for you.

I am looking for a redfoot tortoise 🐢 that's in need of a good home. My shell babies were stolen about 2 years ago. I'm located in Hollywood, FL.
I just bought a beautiful well started redfoot from Southern Reptiles. Ryan was such a great communicator and answered all my questions about caring for a hatchling. I’d definitely recommend this breeder!
We have had our tortoise (Hermann) 🐢 around 6 weeks. She isn't very active.. not eating 2 bits and sleeps all the time. We are worried there's something wrong. Is there something we are not doing.. etc.
We lost a 13 year old tortoise last year .. he didn't come out of hibernation.. which was so sad .. we don't want anything to happen to this baby xx

If your tortoise has a good diet then he shouldn't need any additional vitamins, just a small pinch of calcium and something like Nutrabal a couple of times a week. Too many vitamins can do more harm than good and vets will often offer injections but these are not recommended unless they have done done blood work and know for sure there is a deficiency,

my Sulcata, Max is 125 lbs, the other day he was in his underground house and I hear a scream/loud noise, I looked inside and he made that same sound again, it was loud... Any idea what is happening. I have heard him when he is on his lady friend, a concrete statue, it's not the same noise..

If you click on the 'Forums' tab in the top bar that will take you to the list of all threads. Find the 'General Discussion' thread and 'In Memoriam' is right at the top of that. Alternatively post in the Introductions thread I use a laptop for TFO but a phone shouldn't ne that different.

Hi, you'd be better posting on the main forum This will help you
Think of shells as bowls and feed that much if they want more feed more They are grazers and will return to the food. www.thetortoisetable.org.uk is a good guide to tort safe foods

Do your torts have their own enclosures? They should never be kept in pairs. One will bully the other which can cause illness, injury and even death. Please see the main forum for more info - limited answers only here.

Hey Tom,

What are the most reputable sources for adopting or purchasing tortoises?
Tom

Varies by species. Depends on what you are looking for. Send me a private message and tell me what species you are after?

I have a Russian tortoise named IvantheGreat (all one word). He was found on our dirt road by my neighbor. I have built an enclosure for inside our tv room right under a bright sunny window. It is about 4 ft long by 2.5 ft wide and high enough he can't climb out. He loves yellow bell peppers, Kale and spring mix. His shell is rough. Do I need to wash it with a soft toothbrush? do I need to oil it? With what?
Hi Tom,
Nice to meet you! I just got my baby sulcata exactly 3 days ago. So I'm still a little bit confused about what requirement should I buy for my baby sulcata...
Now I'm looking for a lamp for my sulcata, should I get a UVA or UVB lamp? or even both? and what number of watt do you prefer?

----However, I found these two lighting brand at my local stores : "Exoterra Daylight Basking Bulb" and "Exoterra Intense Basking Spot Bulb". If this sounds familiar to you, can you kindly tell me the differences between these two? and which one should I buy?

Thankyou for answering Tom,
have a nice day ahead
