Re: Growing weeds at home

Hiya, and well done for researching before getting a tortoise. Do you know what species you are going to get. When the time comes please try and source a breeder that will offer you long term advice and will sell healthy tortoises on good diets. That over with, noy will a meter square be enough to s...

Re: Tortoise wound healing

Hmm, nasty.
To me it looks like there is still infection present and maybe the reason for removing the scab is to allow drainage but if that was the case then surely you should be using something with future vet visits.
Elaine will have more answers as she is far more experienced than I am.

Re: Tortoise wound healing

It would be good if you could post another photo of this scab so that we can see it again and refresh our memories. I feel in might be another trip to your vet (is it one that specalises in reptiles, especially tortoises). A photo could also be posted to the TT for expert advice to offer your vet on...

Re: Indoor enclosure

IMO no. If part of a combi bulb goes then you loose it all but with the strip it only needs replacing every so often. To solve your dilema though Bex...you could have a small structure made out of wood that looks like an upside sown 'U' or a goalpost frame and fit it over your table and hang a strip...

Re: Indoor enclosure 2

If you send in some pics (larger size) Bex, I can pass them round to the team and let you know what species it is if we know. The photos need to be of the plastron, including legs and feet. The side view, the top view, one from the back looking un and under the shell at the meat between the tail and...

Re: Saying Hi

Bex has found an ingenious way to resize her photos. She sends them to me and when she gets them back they are small enough to go on the forum. Way to go Bex. Well thought out. Lin Hehe :oops: I've put it under indoor enclosures, will put Tiny's home on there 2moro (expect a pic Lin :lol: )

Re: Indoor enclosure

Its looking wonderful for him Bex. This is just a suggestion but if he were mine I would add some dried grass in a corner so that he can eat as and when he likes. Grass is the best thing a sulcata can eat and if its constantly available 24/7 he will get used to it making it easier to feed him during...
