I’m busy digging a new, comfy hole!
Hi friend! I don’t know where online to find a good tort breeder but I do know that our friends at Port Credit Pets (where I came from) ship. I would also look on Tortoise Forum. They have listings of good breeders there. Good luck!
Hi Xowl! We eat lots of different things.
We have our tort food: Zoo Med grassland tort which is dried hays and grass, Repashy grassland grazer which is filled with all sorts of stuff and Mazuri tort food. Mom mixes all three together to make “tortie slop”.
During the summer we eat clover, dandies, plantain, chicory, hibiscus, grass and whatever tasty sruff mom finds for us.
For treats we get spring mix (but we hate the red leaves), romaine lettuce, kale, radichio, pumpkin, and watermelon a couple of times a year because “it’s just water”.
My most favourite is toast though which I’m not allowed to have so I have to steal a nibble when mom’s not looking.

“do they make cuddle caves for Dachshunds too! I’m thinking about getting one for Bigs to burrow in :)”
Hi Biggie! I don’t know if they make one big enough for dachshunds. The lady who made our cave makes them for hedgehogs. She calls herself Geeky Hogs and mom found her on Facebook.
Hi Chevko! We can’t eat eggs or fruit. Since we are desert torts, our diet gets no protein like meat, bugs or eggs and no fruit or veggies like tomatoes because it upsets our tummies.
A new present in the mail! We love our snuggle sacks but this is a cuddle cave. Mom says it is like a couch for torties. I like it!
Oooh! Hermanns are nice torties, friend Sheldon is one. I hope you get a new friend soon. Tortie love is the best :)
