Re: Another plant identification please

Hiya Lin

Another plant identification please

Hi, gave Tort a ramble around the garden yesterday, he doesn't usually eat random stuff but he took a bite of this and I can't identify it on the database.

Re: More plant identifications plesse

Dear Nina, what would we do without your advice! Thank you so much, I will carefully remove and dispose of the ragwort. I 've seen it growing wild and recognise it when it has flowers on but would not have realised they were the same plant. Good news on the dead-nettle, i'll encourage that one. Best...

Re: Komodo tortoise pellets

Hi Nina, well you know I had not actually noticed the lack of mention of dandelion in the ingredients. It's really annoying isn't it that manufacturers are allowed to give false information and claim foods to be everything your tortoise needs. Yes he does very much like these pellets so unfortunatel...

Hi Lin
Not sure how clearly this will come through as the ingredients print is tiny but hopefully you 'll be able to zoom.
Thanks

Komodo tortoise pellets

Hi Nina/Lin I hope you are well. I was given some Komodo Tortoise Diet Dandelion pellets and gave my little Horsfield a few soaked in water. He loved them. His normal diet is fresh weeds but I struggle to get his calcium supplements down him so have found the pellets useful for this. Would he be ok ...

Re: Female - male mating behaviour!!

Happy New Year everyone and ditto Heather, such helpful advice from Nina and Lin. Well after seeing that video (shock horror!) and having recently posted about my little squeaky boy Horsfield, who has been thru a spell of mounting his big pebbles, it's a relief to hear (and see) stories of other tor...

Male Horsfield

Hi there, I think I know the answer to this one but just wanted to check with those more knowledgeable please. My little 8 yr old male (who has been in my care 21 months now) has developed a new behaviour in the last few weeks. I hear him squeaking, it's not the noise they make when the beak grinds ...

Re: She'll concern

Thanks Nina. Tickle under the chin duly administered! We had such a downpour whilst at the vets that I put him under his lamp in his indoor enclosure on our return and he soon nodded off whilst basking. It's lovely watching him sleep but the slightest noise and those bright little eyes open to check...

Re: Shell concern

Hi again,Just an update from vet visit today. Tort had a good check over and no signs to cause concern. Not sure what has caused the blood under his shell but has given him a thimbleful of Metacam to dose over the next few days just in case he s in any discomfort. Heartbeat checked, probe up his tai...

Erring on the side of caution, I 've booked Tort in to see Filipe on Friday. No harm in him having a health check.

Here's a few pics, tort under his slate then 2 pics of his enclosure. The enclosure pic from the slate shingle end, if you look carefully on the left hand side half way along is his slate cave and you can just about make out his back leg sticking out from under the slate behind the rosemary sprigs :...

Oh yes it's Tortollini, how lovely of you to remember him and he loves his outdoor enclosure. He s so sweet, comes out from under his slate when I call him. I 've e-mailed the vets so hopefully I 'll get a reply tomorrow. I 've also balanced his slate on two bricks now so he can still hide under it ...

Thanks both. Just noticed my spell checker changed 'shell to 'she'll'!! I think I 'll do as you suggest Nina and email that pic to his vet (Fellipe at Ashleigh vets) and get his opinion. The shell is smooth not scratched but with it being on the highest part I suspect he s rubbing against the slate ...

The outdoor enclosure doesn't get the sun until about 12noon through until 8pm ish. If i'm around during the day i'll put him outside around noon after he s had a few hours under hi...
