Hello Tom. I have a quick question about enclosure temps for 18 mo sulcata. Should I be monitoring the air temp or the surface temps? Noticed that air temps have been several degrees cooler than surf temps taken with calibrated IR therm (ex: today, CHE temp controllers were reading low 80s but surface and tort shell temp showed low 90s). I don't want to "slow bake" my tort.
When Stump is in the box, he comes out to eat only and them goes back. It keeps the food fresh and out of the substrate, any urine, etc. Also, with cypress mulch you can rinse, dry in the sun and reuse.
Stump eats his 1/2 to 1 body size in greens per day in addition to the Mazuri soaked for 10 minutes in hot water and drained every morning. Eats grass and weeds from the yard now and walks for over 1/4 mile when he goes on an expedition for bird poop and dry worms. s/he should be called a turdoise. Turds are a passion.
I posted the photos in the thread because you can't here.
Here's the real info... pick up Mazuri LS small tortoise for the first year and then Mazuri LS beyond year one.
chopped greens, pick up some cuttlebone for $5 on amazon and lots of exercise and natural sunshine if you can. As you can see stump has no pyramiding thanks to Tom and the humidity. The key is enough food.
Hi Tom, I have been reading on here and you give out a lot of great information. I was wondering if you set up affiliate links anywhere so people can order what you order. At the same time you can get a kick back?
