    Hi ive had my cham for about a year and half making him just over 3 I think. The past few months his eye will crust over causing him irritation. I clean it so its freed up but I think he cant see out of it anymore. He seems happy enough apart from his eye. He eats ok but only when I hand feed I...

    Hey guys, One of my turtles, his name is Griffith, has dry patches on his shell. I'm worried it's a sign of illness, though his behaviour seems normal. I read that the shell can look this way just before scutes are shed, but it's been this way for about 3 months now. If anything, it's getting...

Anyways he stopped eating suddenly 2...

  15. Shelled - Turtles & Tortoise
    For the past week my horsfield has stopped eating and spends 95% buried and asleep. She (I am only guessing as she is just over a year old) lives in a tortoise table on a substrate of topsoil. She has a basking lamp that also emits UV. She does spend quite a bit of time outside when I am at home...
