Happy birthday to my tortoise Fredric (today) and Paco (Feb 11th) both turn 2 years old !!!!
For their birthdays I decided to do a medieval photo shoot . Everything made by hand looks ghettotastic but whatever I tried my hardest and made it look good.
  I even added my daughter who is almost 4 months named Libby.
   It was fun doing the photoshoot but kind of stressful getting all the stuff done before now been kind of busy.
    Just kind of shocked that I’ve had both my pets are 2 years now and they are amazing.
    I just wish I could do better on the castle and the background stuff but its been cold here couldn’t do it outside and I did what I could with little money.

So happy birthday my zoo two years strong: 3

HAPPY BIRTHDAY FREDRIC AND PACO! 

That’s a quality zoo you’ve got there.

I’m bored and got nothing else to post, so here’s a pic of a friendly tortoise I met on vacation in Florida 3 weeks ago. I think his name was Spunky or something.

Something? something AWESOME! 

You go Spunky. I see determination in those side eyes.

Paco’s weekend antics: 1.Bug Mom while she’s feeding weird little lizards by trying to eat what she calls “gecko bowls” but are actually clever fake noms. Not food 🙁 2.Keep insisting plastic caps are food until Mom brings real treats. Climb into moms lap for the whole bowl, bc I want the whole bowl not just a few pieces. 3.Take a mini nap sort of in the bedside nook… 4.Try to conquer Moms boot, get stuck, whistle through my nose till Mom helps.

What is pyramiding ?

fightingforanimals:

Basically most people think tortoises are supposed to have bumpy shells. Heck no, wild tortoises don’t, and good caretaker’s tortoises don’t. They have a nice smooth shell. The bumps you see on virtually every single captive tortoise is the result of poor husbandry, poor diet, and poor environmental conditions.

This is a healthy sulcata (the kind of tortoise that was in that photo). 

Pyramiding will only get worse if their care isn’t maintained correctly asap… like this…

Great visual. Check out the difference. Proper uvb lighting is vital and still no where near as strong as real sunlight. 

Once pyramiding occurs, proper care is needed to stop the poor growth and growing heath issues. Time under that care can help, but it will not reverse the already deformed shell growth.
