Found an add on Craigslist for a "mostly desert tortoise" naturally I wanted to see a picture. It did not resemble any desert tortoise I am familiar with and the owner didn't have any idea what it was. Several people suggested it was a Texas tortoise (gooherous belanderi [spelling?]). Well I called my sister(she lives in Phoenix near the old owner) and had her pick him up so now I have yet another tortoise of unknown health that I can't give away to any one due to legal ramifications of ownin any tort in the gooherous family...hurray? So lets see: When posting a question about your reptile please include the following: · How long have you owned the animal? Sister has had him 2days. · What is the enclosure size? 20g long dimensions are 30x12x12 I think. · What type of substrate are you using (shavings, bark, paper towel, etc.)? Sand of some sort (came with the tank and will be changed when I get him) · What type of lighting are you using and at what distance(s) are they from the animal? (UVB and Basking) Nothing. He has an under tank heater for the night on a rheostat and is outside for 4-5hours durig the hottest part of the day. · What are the temperatures within the enclosure and how are they being measured? Uth keeps one side at 90 and other side is at 78. Infrared temp gun. · What is the humidity within the enclosure and how is it being measured? Hasn't been measured yet. · What are you feeding (or attempting to feed) the animal? It has some dry tortoise pellets that are added to water and some spring mix. · What exactly are you concerned about? What kind of tortoise is it? I have no idea what it requires without knowing its species. · Please provide images of the animal as well as the enclosure if possible. Thanks rich this was much easier!
