Problem With Ants

23 April 2015 - 02:15 PM

Hi, the little patch of garden my son dug over for me to grow Sterlings plants/food is infested with Ants, do I need to be concerned? Is there a plant I could place in there that would deter them from that area as obviously I can't use a pest control.
Will it be safe for me to place Sterling's tortoise table outside if there's ants about?
Thanks x

Bedding Down & Bathing?

12 April 2015 - 10:06 PM

Hi all, we've had Sterling a week & she's just soo amazing😀🐢
but I have afew questions.. the first few nights she buried down but the last 3 nights she's stayed above to sleep, so last night I covered her with a handful of soil, would I be best leaving her to lay on top uncovered if that's what she chooses?
How long should we keep her in the bath as she constantly tries to climb out, keeping her in for just 10 minutes can be a struggle!
Thanks x

Introducing Sterling

05 April 2015 - 03:47 PM

We only collected little Sterling yesterday but now I fully understand how nutty you lot are about your torts.. I've totally fallen in love with her, I didn't want to leave her & go to bed last night!! 😜
When placed in her new home yesterday she quickly found the heat source, once warmed up, she paced one side of the enclosure for quite some time before eventually burying down into the corner with her bottom proudly exposed into the air for the night!! 🙈
This morning she woke shortly after we switched her lamps on, we let her warm up for 1/2 hour then weighed & bathed her & reweighed her again she gained 1g.
She found her food this afternoon & has had a good nibble🌸🍃🌱🌺

This is Harry the school hamster, He stayed with us at xmas, he's a sweet little chap, very friendly loves to be held. We thought at xmas that would be the last time we would see him.. Thinking another child would look after him at the next half term holidays!! Sadly no-one volunteered, so my daughter said we would.. So it's Welcome back Harry Lol 😀🐹
