Horsfield tortoises share the nest

You wouldn't believe the space these tortoises have and they both decide to lay their eggs in the same nest. The one on the left is a first timer, so perhaps she is in learning mode. Excuse my thumb in the corner of the picture.

Re: 100w or 160w Mercury vapour bulb

100 would be more than sufficient for that size table. A 160 is more suitable to a much greater area for example, in a shed where there is a larger area to heat up.

Horsfields come from the Eastern Mediterranean and Russian Steppes areas so their body physiology is geared to hot dry summers and exceptional...

Re: Growing weeds at home

Yes, you could strip some leaves off but do remember to be careful digging up plants in the wild. I'm sure no-one will stop you but please be mindful of the law. Read our page in our resources section of the website.

Turtles Jade Emperor Pagoda Saigon

The Jade Emperor Pagoda is an important shrine in Saigon which I was lucky enough to visit last month. Its other name is the Tortoise Pagoda and outside is a pond full of turtles.
