Nettle's New Home ... Finally!

30 August 2012 - 04:00 PM

Nettle is nearing three (where has that time gone!?) and was nearly able to escape her rabbit cage that I had turned into a table for her so I finally got round to constructing her a much nicer and bigger table!!

She is quite cautious with her exploring of it (she has already managed to muddy her water bowl though! :rolleyes: ) but I think she will grow to love it! Anyone else's torotises' creatures of habit!?!

I have added some pictures and a few of the lovely lady herself! Hope your torts are all ok!


Summer Fun

Hi everyone!

Enjoying the sunshine!?

Nettle has been outside and loving it although yesterday she found and ate something very small and slimy (looked a bit like a baby worm/snail :sigh: )

It was very small and I did manage to prise most of it out of her mouth but will she be ok!? Do I need to worm her and are things like butternut squash suitable (I have heard this has been used before as a natural wormer!?)

Any help advice would be much appreciated!

Happy sunbathing! :sun:


Hello... Again!

Hi everyone!

I am just posting to say that although it says I am a new member ... I am not! My account would not allow me access so I have had to start again! For those that may remember me, my little tortoise goes by the name of Nettle and I have been on quite a few times over the last two and a half year asking for advice and posting pictures!!

While I am here...

I bought Nettle some Sphagnum Moss and she does not burrow into it or really bother with it but she does eat it quite a lot!! :S

Anyone else's torts do this!??
