What is the white chalky stuff that my tortoise excretes? is there a problem?
NO, DON'T WORRY THIS IS JUST NATURAL TOXINS BEING EXPELLED AND IT IS A GOOD THING.IF YOUR TOROISE NEVER DID THIS THEN IT COULD LEAD TO A BLADDER STONE .THE BEST THING TO DO IS BATH YOUR TORTOISE REGULARLY AND MAKE SURE THERE IS FRESH WATER FOR IT TO DRINK SO THAT IT DOES NOT DEHYDRATE
i have read you must not hibernate in the garden is this true?
Hi, absolutely not.I have always let mine hibernate naturally in the garden in their outdoor home .I am going to write more about this on my blog so please have a look.
