Hi guys, I'm new to the forum and am hoping to get lots of advice from the wise on here!

I'm Larry'sMom.... Larry is the name I have given to a tortoise that I acquired. I know NOTHING about tortoises but I think I'm doing OK so far.

But like I said, hoping to get lots of advice, I have tons of questions.

Hope you are all having a super Friday!

Hi Larry'sMom.

What are you feeding Larry?
Dont be alarmed if you see Larry munching on dog poop. Thats if you have a dog.
In the wild they will gnor on bone and eat carnivores feces to get calcium for their shell growth and egg development. You should add calcium supplements to his diet and plenty of vitamin D (sun light ).
