My tortoise's nails are bent the wrong way. I'm wondering if they're growing like that or he's doing something to make them bend. Is that normal?

I got a Red Footed Tortoise his name is shelldone. I love him so much. I taught him how to wave. I am 8 years old. I try to take him out of his cage to give him exercise and attention every day. Sometimes I get busy but I know he's always there.

I have a red foot tortoise, his name is Franklin. I just brought him home. My dad helped me set up his tank. So far he is shy. We love him and I hope he loves us.

    He just needs to adjust to the environment. Be sure to have the correct temp & humidity. Also, he may not eat right away till he is comfortable. Don't worry, be patient because he is full of
    love & totally worth the wait!
    I have a red foot named morton that I got at a reptile show 6yrs. ago & he is by far the best pet I have ever had! Red foots are the most intelligent of their species & can be trained. They are very curious & have amazing personalities! P.S..they love their heads rubbed hard & will push against you.

I have a redfoot named Shelly. She's smart and active; she has a good appetite, and I adore her. She's 2yrs old and getting large (she gets into the dogs food more than she should). The problem is, she has several white areas on her shell. It does not look like a fungus. It looks like she has no pigmentation-like vitiligo! What could this be? Has anyone else seen this?

    Dog food is bad, bad, bad and cause pyramiding. IF you must give a dry protein source a HIGH QUALITY CAT FOOD THAT IS LOW FAT and has no or little corn is best. Boiled eggs, raw chicken, raw shrimp and many kinds of worms ( mill worms are easy and cheap to get) are more ideal. They are prone to so many metabolic diseases when they eat dog or cat food as it has grains that are not good for them and too much fat. But cat high quality low fat cat food is the lesser of two evils and even that should be limited to 1x a week. Hope that helps.

I have two, what I have been told are the Snow Leopard Tortoises, male and female. Both I believe are over 7 years old. Unfortunately due to personal circumstances I am not able to care for them any longer.
Should I send you photographs?

Does anyone know what age a spur tugged tortoise ( testudo Greeca ) needs to be before sexual maturity? As I would like to know how many years I have to wait for my three tortoises to breed they are called female - fluffy, squishy male - stompy the females are four and hatched two days apart and the male will be three at some point this year also I know rarely some have bumpy shells but fluffy being the biggest I think has grown too quickly and has not gored her shell properly it is very bumpy, I'm starting to worry because it has not improved at all in the year and a half that I have had her and her sister :( thank you for taking your time to read this.

    No the males will kill each other and the females may get injured during their fighting.

Hi my leopard tortoise is 10 cm in length. He's the sweetest little guy in the world and has warmed up to everyone he comes across. I just don't know how old he is, could you help me out?
