#65260 Questions From The New Carer Of Em & Eb...

Posted by kizzydartmoor on 30 November 2015 - 10:46 AM

bonjour...having taken on board all the advice offered on this site & purchased the Arcadia 18w Desert Pro lamp & completely new substrate dampened with the daily warm bath water, my torties Em & Eb have forgiven my ignorance/inexperience & are flourishing...a poo each very often, urates in the bath, lively after bathing times but more importantly they now actually get up out of hiding & have a walk around to check everything out as I move things around to different positions daily to give them a new dimension. Just on occasions do the have the Romarin lettuce but daily now eat Sow Thistle & Dandelions & altho I offer rose petals & Honeysuckle they ignore them...maybe in time they will. I have a roof tile with a rough surface as a ramp up to the food bowl to help keep their nails & beeks in trim & another rough stone has the Cuttlefish on for the same reason. Just a sneaky feeling but Emily might not be a girl & will have to have a slight name change to Emile...could be wrong but wait & see....**************************many thanks to all who gave the good advice********************
