I haven't been on this forum in awhile! Anyways, I'm back with questions!
My girlfriend is "obsessed" with turtles so I got her a Desert Tortoise. My dad has had tortoises for about 15yrs and they've lived in the backyard in a little hole and eat the flowers we have. Probably about 2-3yrs ago they had babies and I've recently asked my girlfriend if she wanted one and she of course said yes. The baby tortoise is only about 2yrs old and is probably no bigger/longer than a tennis ball, still very small. I had an extra 10gal tank that I was going to use for my African Fat-tail gecko's babies (which never did happen). So I got a tank for her with some cage carpet, but I'm going to get some sifted dirt out of the backyard for it instead. (Dad's friend said sifted dirt is the best choice, and he's a reptile man so I believed him). Anyways, so I have a lamp with a 75 watt red heat light for the nighttime, and I have a daylight bulb for the daytime. I have a coconut shelter for it, that should tell you how small the baby is small enough to fit inside one of the smaller coconut homes.
I'm just wondering what do I need to do get her setup with? I was told the Desert Tortoise could eat collard greens, mustard greens, and like romain lettuce with vitamin supplement. We feed ours like plums and things every so often when we can just for like a treat.
If anybody can upload a picture of a Desert Tortoise setup, that would be awesome, and also a list of things I might need for the baby.
