  •   theredviperoberyn Yeah they are beautiful animals. I had a few as a kid, including snapping turtles I rescued. My brother actually had a massive alligator snapping turtle, that had been injured as a baby by trash that was thrown out into the water. He was a cool dude lol 4h

  •   shelledfriends Just a tip... leopards need humidity. Timothy hay and alfalfa pellets aren't a good substrate. They should have 70% humidity to prevent pyramidding, a common misconception with these desert tortoises. As hatchlings, they live in burrows that stay warm and humid for the first couple of years in their life. I've seen too many leopards on this type of substrate and dryness get horrible pyramidding. If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask. 19h
  •   tortfam @shelledfriends thanks. We soak them twice a day and their enclosure has an area of moist coco fiber. They don't seem to like it much 19h
  •   shelledfriends It's not about "what they like", you need to make the change for their health. I suggest getting a humidifier and keeping it at 70% humidity. Soaks simply help hydrate and loosen their bowels not against pyramidding. I'm not trying to come off as rude but I made the change and I am glad I did, for my tortoise's sake. 19h
