Hi all,

I got home yesterday evening (Thursday 2/5/09) and found a box with A Red foot and Leopard tortoise on my doorstep. I'm known as the reptile person around my building so, I guess someone thought I could care for them. I took them in and looked them over. OMG was I sicken. The Red foot had eye and mouth drainage. Both had feces encrusted tails, they stunk. It broke my heart. I soaked them for 45 minutes to try and help clean them up, the water was dirty into 5 minutes. I called the local herp recuse and they are going to take them in a couple of days. I'm going to make them as comfortable as possible until then.

Question. The Red foot had a mushroom looking thing come out of his anus, is that normal? What can I do to help them?

Thanks,
Scott
