Baby African Pancake Tortoise Care

Baby african pancake tortoise care is very important.

baby pancake tortoise care

Pancakes are one of the few arid habitat tortoises that thrive in vivariums, although a well set-up tortoise table would be fine for them as well. They need a good source of UVB and a basking area large enough for them to expose their whole shells to the hot spot, rather than just a small area. They are also happy to live in groups, unlike many other species.

Feeding is relatively simple for them as long as you follow a few common sense rules. They do very well on a weed based diet, high in fibre and calcium, low in protein and phosphorous. Avoid fruit, and any greens high in oxalic acid (such as spinach) or goitrogens – chemicals that cause gout (most of the brassica family, cabbages, kale and so on). These food items are fine as a treat, but should be avoided on a regular basis. Plain calcium should be dusted on every feed, with a good quality multivitamin/multimineral powder added twice a week. Pancake tortoises feed enthusiastically, and seem to prefer to eat in the morning; they like to spend most of the day tucked up in their hides, but once they’re settled they will emerge to investigate whenever anyone comes near their home.

Baby Russian Tortoise Care

Baby Russian tortoise care is very important.

Care should be taken to make sure that tortoises do not overeat, but they do require to be given fresh food every day. It’s also important to make sure that Horsefield tortoises always have access to fresh drinking water, particularly the females when they are breeding.russian tortoise care

Russian tortoises are also known as horsefield tortoises require a balanced vegetarian diet. The diet can include a wide variety of plants, as long as they are not poisonous and have not grown in an area sprayed with agricultural chemicals. Leafy greens and weeds should be a big part of the diet, including dandelion, mallow and common grasses. In order to maintain a healthy shell, a tortoise needs plenty of calcium in its diet. Calcium supplements can be purchased from any good pet store. Limestone flour, which is very high in calcium, is available from most equestrian suppliers. Calcium, mineral and vitamin supplements should be scattered over the leaves that form the main part of the diet.

A Horsefield will be happy being housed with other Horsefields. This species cannot tolerate high humidity and must never be kept in damp conditions. Suitable housing, indoors or outdoors, needs to be prepared in advance of a tortoise being purchased. Make sure that an outdoor enclosure is well drained and can be kept dry. The Horsefield is very adept at digging and tunnelling, so a layer of wire mesh should be placed at least eight inches below the surface. Different ground levels formed of mounds and rocks will make a tortoise feel safer and less exposed. Climbing rock surfaces also helps to keep claws short. Both outdoor and indoor housing must be kept clean and dry. A ground layer of sand, soil and gravel can be topped with hay and woodchips to provide a suitably dry surface. A dish of clean water should always be provided. A few clean stones placed in and around the dish will allow easier access for younger, smaller tortoises. A feeding platform can be made from a piece of slate or a flat rock. This will prevent food from getting mixed in with dirt and other non-edible substances.

Baby Red Foot Tortoise Care

Baby red foot tortoise care is very important.

Vivarium Set-Up

Your heating source should be positioned at one end of the tank, creating a hot basking end for your tortoise. The opposite end should have no heating, creating a cool end. Place your thermometer and / or thermostat sensor on the floor in the middle of your vivarium, at this point in your tank the thermometer should read 82-84oF and should be maintained for 24 hours a day, the best way to achieve an accurate temperature is with a thermostat.

cherry head red foot tortoise

UV lighting is essential for 12-14 hours a day. The UV tube should start against the wall at the hot end and span 2/3 the length of the enclosure thus creating a UV gradient much like your heating. It is best to position your UV tube 6-9 inches from the ceiling of a 2ft high vivarium with a reflector.

Always remember to replace your UV tube every 6 months unless the manufacturer suggests otherwise. .

Substrate, Cleaning And Furniture

There are several good substrates for tortoises, a good quality orchid bark is recommended, and it is certainly the best for tortoises from humid regions. Tortoises from dryer regions fare much better on beech chip. No tortoise should be kept on sand.

Always provide your tortoise with clean fresh drinking water; tap water is fine.

Your tortoise requires somewhere to hide, provide it with a box containing a good quality rabbit hay. The hay provides a comfortable bedding and is also very useful as part of your animals diet.

Feeding And Vitamins

Many different feeding routines and diets have been used with varying levels of success the best suited to this set-up will be explained below.

Tortoises should be given 3 wet meals a week and access to as much dry food as it like. A tortoise’s wet diet is made up of 90% leafy greens, such as Rocket, Endives, various salad leaves and selected weeds. The final 10% is made up of fruits and vegetables to add colour and flavour. See later list and online guides for safe foods.

The dry part of its diet is very important. The hay used as bedding can be eaten and chopped to mix with the wet food to add a little more roughage. Alfalfa can also be left in the enclosure or mixed with the wet food in the same way.As a general rule we like to leave a good dry pellet food in the enclosure at all times. Do not add to much water. The point of this is to allow your animal to fill up on a low water content food so they don’t gorge themselves on high water content foods.

It’s worth noting that the Tortoises mentioned in this care sheet come from fairly arid regions and eat a large amount of roughage. They come across very little fresh growth other than early spring and can only find fruits when they fall from their plants for a very brief period of the year. A high moisture diet is a common cause of grown deformities such a shell pyramiding.

GOOD FOOD

Dandelions. You can also buy from any good exotics pet dealer packs of edible garden weed seeds
Mustard greens
Endive
Rocket
Most basic salad leaves are fine provided you add something more substantial
Watercress
Squash
Green beans
Asparagus

It is worth remembering that if you take foods from outside to check no pesticides or fertilizers have been used nearby.

Baby Hermann’s Tortoise Care

Baby hermann’s tortoise care is very important.

During the first year of your tortoise’s life, extra special care must be taken. Because they are so small, it is easy for them to become too cold quickly or too hot and dehydrated.

Your tortoise will require a good few inches of sterilised top soil and coco coir mixed in the table. Babies need to be able to dig down and bury themselves for proper eastern hermann’s tortoise hatchling care.

baby_eastern_hermanns_care

A hot spot or basking spot should be provided on a thermostat of about 90 F degrees. A cooler end should also be provided for the tortoise to escape the full heat from of no less than 20 degrees. At night the hotter end of the table must be reduced and the temperature should be maintained at 68 F.

It is essential that your tortoise has a UV light. Without UVB light your tortoise cannot metabolise calcium, which can lead to skeletal problems. We do not advise a combined lamp for hatchlings. This is because you do not have control over the temperature of a combined self-ballasted lamp, because it cannot be used with a thermostat.

Please ensure that your Tortoise is fed the most natural of foods. A weed and plant diet is essential. Under no circumstances should you feed meat to your Hermann’s tortoise or any fruit or vegetables. Food supplements are essential. After the first year of the tortoise’s life, twice a week of a light calcium dusting is sufficient. Lettuce has its place as a hydration tool but contains virtually no fiber or nutritional value either. Do not feed any plants that have had pesticides or fertilisers used on them.

red footed tortoise humidity

 

Humidity for red footed tortoises should be kept at 60-80% which is harder to keep in a tank or open enclosure. The best way to establish this is by using a plastic bin with holes drilled throughout and PVC racks. Aquariums may be used but they are harder to maintain humidity in, unless you cover the majority of the lid with plastic wrap or some type of blocking agent. Using a plastic bin is the cheapest alternative and do work but get a proper bin that will not melt from heat . PVC’s for reptiles are amazing for keeping red foots. For those who do not know what we mean, here is  pictures of a PVC enclosures. If you are looking to purchase one of these, please contact us and we can connect you with a supplier.  We recommend reptile basics for cost effective nice setups.

Indoor and outdoor Red footed tortoise enclosures setting up a pen like one a Russian, Greek, or Hermann’s would thrive in (open, lots of sunshine, and a hide) is not what these tortoises need and is all too often what I see.In that type of setup keeping the temperature between 70 and 90 degrees let alone the humidity between 70 and 90% is extremely difficult unless you soak it down 5-6 times a day.

Your Red footed tortoise enclosures, whether indoor or outdoor, should mimic their natural habitat and have 60-75% of the pen area covered in plants. Plastic ones work best for indoor pens because they don’t get eaten.

Pink Belly Side Necked Turtle Diet & Feeding

   Before purchasing your new pink belly side necked turtle for sale, find the right aquatic turtle for sale breeder.  Whether it be a turtle store, or turtle farm, it is important you find the right turtle breeder selling captive bred baby turtles for sale only.   Our pink belly side necked turtles are all captive bred and raised by hand in fresh, clean water.  All of our pink belly side neck turtles for sale come with our full live arrival and 7 day health guarantee.  We always recommend the 6 month old or yearling well started pink belly side necked turtle over the new, more fragile fresh turtle hatchlings for sale.

Diet and Feeding

In the wild, these turtles feed primarily on crustaceans, mollusks and aquatic insects that share their river habitat. Captive pink-bellied side-necked turtles don’t have overly-specific dietary requirements and eat a variety of plants and animals. They easily adjust to whatever feeding schedule their owner finds convenient, as long as they’re fed approximately every other day. While commercial turtle pellets and cut fish are adequate, pink-bellied side-necked turtles also enjoy a variety of vegetables, worms, chicken and lean beef.

A single pink-bellied side-necked turtle hatchling, at about 4 inches long, needs a 20-gallon aquarium at a minimum. The species does well in groups, provided the size of the enclosure is increased by at least 10 percent for each additional turtle. As the hatchling grows, its area should be increased by 10 gallons for each inch it grows. Adults reach lengths of 8 to 9 inches. If the water isn’t constantly flowing, the turtle benefits from a filtration system to keep its water clean between changing. River sand at the floor of the enclosure mimics the turtle’s natural habitat. Rocks, greenery, cork bark, and partially-submerged logs or other ramps enable the turtle to leave the water when it wants to bask.

We have some fantastic, vivid colored pink belly side necked turtles for sale.  We have captive bred baby pink belly side neck turtles for sale, captive bred well started 6 month old baby pink belly side necked turtle for sale as well as yearling pink belly side neck turtles for sale. pink belly side neck turtle for sale

The pink-bellied side-necked turtle (Emydura subglobosa) is a recent introduction to the North American turtle keeping hobby. Its shell ranges in color from beige to chestnut brown or slate gray. The plastron can be white, pink or, in the case of especially prized specimens, bright red/orange. The skin is typically various shades of gray, with some red markings. As pink-bellied side-necks grow, their skin develops additional random red/orange markings.

Temperature and Lighting

Pink-bellied side-necked turtles are aquatic turtles, and spend most of their time in the water. They do require daylight, and do best in natural sunlight. If they are kept indoors, they need a full-spectrum light, or the combination of a 75-watt spotlight and a Vita-lite or other UVB bulb, during daylight hours. They do best in water kept at temperatures between 66 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit, although hatchlings need somewhat warmer water with temperatures in the low 70’s to low 80’s. The temperature of the turtles’ water can be monitored with a thermometer permanently affixed to the side of their tank.

A single pink-bellied side-necked turtle hatchling, at about 4 inches long, needs a 20-gallon aquarium at a minimum. The species does well in groups, provided the size of the enclosure is increased by at least 10 percent for each additional turtle.
