Ok, I apologize if some people find it annoying that I am starting a new thread it is just that other one is getting long so please don't be upset about this... I really want your input because as stated already I find it rather hard to find good sources of information on health and treatments of leopard torts... I really wish I could find some great books on them but I really don't know where to look.

So here are some pictures of my set up, under the heat lamp side there is also and UTH pad built into the cage... there is a plexi glass separating the heat pad from the encloser that you can not see under the mulch. The room temp is right around 77 degrees and there is a ceiling fan that runs in this room 24-7 so it is not 77 degrees in the room and 60 on the floor. I also attached a picture of our other tort, she is the one that was housed with the other. The picture of the wood block looking thing is a 15x15 corner that the larger tort can not get into but the little one could. Since I have last posted we set the small tort up in a 10 gal with uth and light of its own and a hide. It is also set up on a shelf so it is maybe 1 or 2 degrees warmer.

Also I know that a handful of people posted that they see medical issues with my animals... what are you looking at so I have a better idea how to diagnose and what should I be doing for treatment? I know these animals have a long life expectancy and I really would like to know how to get educated on how to keep them for the next 50 years.

Thanks for any input,
Matt
