I was wondering if I could send a picture of my girl calliope, I got her at 2 years old and her shell was already kinda bumpy but im not sure if she is pyramiding D:

For sure! You can email me at wafflestort@gmail.com

Since taking my little sulcata calliope out on my bed it made me realize she really likes my fuzzy blankets. Maybe I should get her, her own sloth! Who knew tortoises love cuddling so much

We love warm and soft things. I like pillows and blankies too. I need a new stuffie. I am too big for sloth now :(

My tortoise hates taking her morning soaks and is always trying to escape her tub, do you like your baths?

Hello! We do like out bath. Mom gives us a nice, warm bath first thing in the morning. It’s relaxing because it’s a nice way to warm up.

Thank you Aunt Debbie for our new tent! It needs a name. Camp something or other. What should we call it?

Giant hibiscus today! Regular hibiscus is just as tasty but giant hibiscus is twice as fun!

Aunt Charlie came to visit me today. It was nice that she could take a seat in my home and I could entertain her like a proper host would. I shared my cuttlebone since she had never had some before. She gave me hibiscus.

Hello Waffles, I am very scared about something and hope you can help - I have a ZooMed Compact 5.0 UVB bulb for my future baby tort but so far everyone I ask is telling me horrible things. They say coil UVB bulbs and fluorescent tube bulbs have caused torts to go BLIND! They said this should have been fixed in 2009 but there's no way to be sure. Torts need UVB but apparently all the UVB bulbs are dangerous? What do I do! I don't want to blind my baby! D:

Hello! We saw this on the internet too when mom was looking for lighting suggestions. We’ve had flourescent uv bulbs because the regular bulbs aren’t always easy to find. Currently we have two long tube bulbs to keep all our grass and hibiscus alive. I haven’t had any problems with them so far but I’m sure it wouldn’t hurt to ask around. If any of our reptile friends want to offer advice, please leave a comment :}

dear waffles' mom, i went to a repticon in my area a couple months back and im still miffed!!!!!!!!!!!! there was a raffle for hatchling sulcatas for 1 dollar and the booth was definitely preying on children with no care information or even photos of adults to let parents know that this is a huge af tortoise that wont stay a tiny 2-inch baby forever. why are people so crappy?!?

This makes me and mom angry too. Mom especially doesn’t like any reptile to be given away as a prize. There always seems to be contests online for geckos or snakes as a prize. Who knows who is getting the free reptile? Can they take care of it? Do they have a proper home for it? By making a reptile a prize, they are given a “disposable” status that some people associate goldfish and red ear sliders with. You would never see a kitten or a puppy given as a prize at a pet expo so what makes it ok with reptiles? You’re right to be miffed.
