I have a 17 year old female leopard tortoise, she is lovely and spends most of the day wondering round our house as it's too cold outside. She has a large box in our kitchen with a heat lamp where he sleeps at night, and then she has a day lamp which she chooses when to go under or not, he is free to go in and out of his enclosure in to our house whenever she likes and spends alot of the time basking in the sun coming in through the window or sitting with out dog who absolutely loves her.

My daughter cought a painted baby turtle abiut two months ago. He's been doing fine in his 55 gallon tank. But my questions are, we took out his wood log that was his dry area, cause it was smelling up the house and tank. And we changed the water and added a suctioncup turtle dock to his set-up, but I have not seen him get out of the water fully and sit or even walk across it yet. And it's been about 10 hours now. Will he get sick or drown from not getting out every now and then? Also we noticed some ragged looking shreds hanging off him. And was wondering if it's him shedding from growing or is this a bad sign? Any info asap on his conditions would be greatly appreciated.

    I would be concerned about the 'ragged looking shreds' because as these turtles grow, they loose individual scutes. He does need to get out of the water to bask, and needs a calcium supplement and full spectrum lighting (UVB) in the basking area in order get Vitamin D to absorb the calcium.

My pink toe hadn't eaten in about two weeks and now he's having problems gripping the glass. He can't climb the side of his terrarium, when he tries he just slides down or falls off. If anyone has any ideas please help me by responding.

    My 1 1/2 year old mexican red knee female is currently experiencing the same problem and I have no idea why.
  • Jennifer - 2014-03-08
    Our pink toe has recently started sliding down the glass as well. He has no traction and falls a lot. He's been spending time down on the substrate, and I'm wondering if his toes are dirty. I haven't seen him grooming for awhile and he used to do it quite often. He is an adult male, so I don't know how much longer he will live. I hope the slippery feet isn't a sign of old age.
  • sean - 2014-03-13
    Now my pink toe has cocooned himself at the bottom of the cage, I'm hoping this is just a stage before the molt. Please help if you know something I don't.
  • Nora - 2014-04-23
    It sounds like you are misting/spraying the walls of the vivarium. Pinktoes grip is amazing and if yours has moulted; the moult has grip as well. My advice would be to spray cooled boiled water onto the susbstrate (two quick sprays should do) and any plastic plants you may have in there.
  • Anonymous - 2014-05-09
    Tarantulas will often act this way before moulting.

    Make sure it has lots of water.

    He may just need some time to adjust to his new environment. If he is eating and has access to water I wouldn't worry just yet. Keep his cage clean, mist it occasionally, and make sure he has a private place he can retreat to, such as a log or a rock cave.
  • Margaret - 2013-08-24
    Ummmmm you're not supposed to mist rose hair tarantulas at all. They are a dry species and prefer not to be misted. If you do mist it will make her uncomfortable and she'll climb about her tank like a nut case.
  • AJ - 2013-11-05
    Hi I have a rosie and they hate being misted, I only to keep humidity at an acceptable level 50 sounds good for a rosie, but only do a light mist towarfs the water bowl make that the 'moist area' don't do the whole tank - they like it dry so you want your substrate to be dry and have at least a dry end of the cage if your getting used to regulating humidity

Hello everyone! I purchased my sulcata 2 years ago from a local petshop. Once I saw it I fell in love with it. The petshop owner did not know much about it, only that it would grow really large. He told me one name, but as I found out later he was wrong. My undergrad major was in biology and I studied herpetology. I classified the tortoise as a Sulcata tortoise. I did research and learned all I could about it. At first I did not know her sex, and I decided to name her flip, due to her flipping over all the time. I live in South Texas where we have very short winters or none at all. I have a very large yard where she enjoys digging, sun bathing, and grazing. She is very accustom to me and comes and knocks on the door for food or just curiosity. She's not that large yet, but I can't wait for her to get bigger.
