Topics I've Started

Replacement Bulb

02 March 2017 - 04:38 PM

I have been reading the topic about bulbs with great interest as I am looking to replace my current bulb. I have an Arcadia UV Basking Lamp 80watt at present. It provides heat, light and UV. I would just like to check,if anyone could advise me, before I go ahead and purchase the megaray 100watt bulb that it would do the same, if not an even better job than the Arcadia 80watt. Also can anyone advise the life expectancy be it in hours or months of the megaray bulb. Thank you so much. The shop that I have always bought my supplies from and found to be most helpful with advise and guidance has unfortunately closed down.

Skin Issue

Hi. Could someone please post a close up photo of their Hermann tortoise's legs. I can't help but notice that the skin on my tortoise's legs is thick and scaly (for want of the correct terminology) til about his knees then the scales seem to become scarcer and scarcer getting to the point where there are no scales for the last centimeter or so before where his legs meet his shell. I can't help but wonder if this is normal? Please excuse my ignorance and any thoughts/opinions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Advice Please

I am getting concerned because so far today Topsy has had 4 poos. This is very unusual for him. He has been having a mixed weed / flower selection of food and has appeared his usual healthy and happy self but seems a little more subdued today which is normal for him when the weather cools after a very hot spell. Can anyone suggest what I should feed him tomorrow and offer any advise in general. It'd be most appreciated. Thank you.
