Topics I've Started

Bit of help/advice please. My tort today has developed an underbite. I understand it wouldn't have developed today but up until today he shut his mouth perfectly.

Is there anyway this can be solved, or at least, made less worse. It makes me sad looking at him.

I've got some pictures but they aren't the best

Just curious if anyone knows how good a tortoises hearing is and if loud noises can damage hearing etc?

Top Soil

01 March 2016 - 05:10 PM

Hi all. I use to purchase my top soil from home base but my local one has stopped stocking it. Was wondering where you purchase yours from or even coir (which I've never used - what are the benefits?)

I've found this one: http://www.wickes.co...il-25L/p/200247suitable?

Air Freshener

I've just purchased some ambi-pur air freshener things, where it plugs in and sprays a scent every hour or so.

Would this be ok in the same room as my tortoise enclosure? He's in the kitchen/diner so its a relatively large room. Not sure if it would harm him or not?

Check Up

Evening, or early morning!

Just wanted to get opinions on what is happening with Edward at the moment. I think I'm doing it correctly but just making sure. Not hibernating, due to illness in January.

He's slowed down with the coldness setting in. During this time he's stopped eating as much, as I expected, and has fallen from 130g to 122g, now back at 124g.

He sleeps a lot and isn't all too active. If he buries down at night, I usually have to wake him, unlike in the summer when he awoke himself. I bathe him majority of days.

Day temps are 32-34 ish with 18 in parts. Night around 16 and I can't get it colder as I'd like to get to 12 if I can but he's already in the coldest part of the house.

Would you say this is all normal and fine? Advice welcome
