Re: Seed mix

I have some, yes. I’ll give it a go. They’re Habistat fruit and herb flavour pellets - not even a complete food. In the first week I gave in and out then down for her once and she gobbled them up .

Re: Seed mix

It does get very hot and humid here! She’s a hermann’s , nearly 5. I’ve only had her a month as she eats very very little - I’m hoping it’s just because she’s new to our home.

Re: Male or female?

I see what you mean about the red tint now. There's a very faint pink tint on the lower end of her plastron - it can't be seen under the UV lamp, and it only shows under natural light when the sun hits it at a certain angle. It looks more pale brown than pink, in real life. I've just noticed this th...
