This Any Good?

11 July 2015 - 10:54 AM


Please can you help me, I have quite a bit of this growing at the moment. Should it stay or should it go? Is it good for my two? I know it's not buttercup, but the flower is quite similar.

Thank you :)

Snapped these extra cute pics this afternoon - who needs a soft bed when there is a very cozy shell to rest upon!

Cuttle Questions

14 May 2015 - 04:10 PM

How do...

I have a cuttle bone in my enclosure for the guys, the one I've never seen eat it but the other binges a couple of times a day nearly everyday - can they have too much? Should I consider removing it? Or will he stop once he is satisfied but obviously feels he needs it at the moment?


Hydrated Temperatures

11 May 2015 - 08:09 AM

Hi – I am getting all confused with my temperatures…


In my indoor enclosure the warm end under the lamp reads between 32c and 34c depending on the time of day and surrounding temperatures (which I am guessing is as expected?), the thermometer probe is at my tortoise height so about 1cm off the floor and under the lamp. When I water the enclosure the temperature drops to 26ish and then slowly creeps back up to 32c over a day and half or so as the area dries out.


Should I be altering the height of the lamp so it’s a constant 32c reading on the thermometer regardless of what it says when the area is dry, or are they still getting 32c from above even though its  cooler underneath and I should leave it where it is?


Hopefully that reads clear – in my head it does……..


Many Thanks

They've Arrived...

This morning my little guys arrived. They are just adorable!


They have had a warm, and are now eating and having a good explore, they are very interesting to watch, finding myself just sitting and looking.
