    Hi Guys I found a Horsefield Tortoise about 18 months ago and have looked after him ever since. Obviously with no history I have googled a lot about them and their eating habits and how to care for him, how to find out he was actually a "him" lol But his size is confusing me as he is about 8"...

    Hi all I am debating the age of my rex, I remember when I first posted a picture of him and said hes 7 weeks old, I kind of sensed a disbelief to the age.. As he was very small Now I have had him a month, that should make him 3 months old but according to the average age-length chart, hes still...

    Hey all, basically I bought a "dwarf" male boa a few weeks ago, I was told he is 5 years old (and 5.5ft)and in the old owners diary he shed on the 17th November. He was in blue the last week, his eyes cleared today so I'm guessing he will shed in the next couple of days!? So that's about 3...

    How can you determine a snakes age? I adopted a Colombian rainbow boa recently but as this is my first snake of this species, I'm not sure what age he is. The seller also didn't have any info on the last shed, last fed etc. It's a male, that I know. So any way on how to know his age? Like with...

Treatment has reduced the lump to practically nothing and Whizzbee is now eating bigger rats again (after reducing him to...

  13. Shelled - Turtles & Tortoise
    My boyfriend and I rescued a mississippi map turtle about 5 months ago, and we have no idea what his/her age would be, we are not really sure even what sex it is, though I am leaning more towards female since it does not have a concave belly. Are there any physical indicators I can or should be...

    Hi all, so I realised today that there is something that I feel I ought to know but don't, and have had trouble finding good information on. Basically, while I know that a male FWC can be expected to measure 6-7' while fully grown, but have no sure idea on how long it usually takes for the snake...

    Hi, we are looking to adopt my auntie's tortoise who is roughly 60 years old. He/she was originally handed to another family member who has kept tortoises and turtles for many years. Things were going well, but illness has meant he has to rehome the tortoises and we are, as I said, to adopt my...
