Soo we now have Ruby our beardie and a NEW addition a Redfoot Tortoise named Wheezy :D He's from a local rescue and is only 7inches (shell length) he's a full grown adult and so should be 12-14inches but his shell is sooo badly pyramided that he doest seem to grow. (he's been with the rescue for 6yrs and hasn't grown and inch so guessing his a full grown adult age unknown :( He's such a handsome fella regardless and we just love him!! Heres a couple pics and a quick video :D

I'm seriously looking into a hermanns tortoise for my (Very loving and gentle) daughter. They truely are amazing animals. On a side note, my BD Myah, was a 'Second chance' dragon. I adopted her at a year old and she's cuddling me as a write this. I'm so thankful for my adopted adult.

Wheezy does have a unique look. I don't know how anyone could could be so neglectful. It makes me so very frustrated. :angry5: Thank goodness Wheezy is with you now. It must truely feel like heaven on earth :D I know my daughter will loose interest sooner rather then later, *sigh* but we've decided on the Hermanns for their smaller size and shorter life expectancy. I'm hoping that when she's grown and out on her own, she'll take the little one with her. Or atleast take her pet once I'm 6 feet under! LOL! :lol:

6years. How wretched :( An amazing animal was truely forsaken. May I ask a favor? May I see a pic of your indoor enclosure? (If you have) I live in Canada and will need an inside home for the little one.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
