...and you know the fluid was taken in via the skin or cloaca... I don't think so. To bad there doesn't seem to be any documented evidence either scientific or anecdotal to support this claim. There is documented evidence to dispute it... one of which... ironically... you cited as evidence against the myth of cloacal drinking in this same discussion years ago.

As far as the number of tortoises I've encountered... Working in a reptile specialty shop then reptile wholesaler from 78 to 81 then maintaining large collections from 81 to present... in the process working with occasional importing, rehoming and confescations.

I have use ringers solution(injected) and gator aid(soaked in or tubed when they didn't drink on their own) or all reptiles when needed.

It's kinda easy to maintain Asian tortoises in a climate similar to where they originated.

>>HUNDREDS! Rescues? Confascated illegal shippments? Just over the long run back when all we had were imports? You ever use Lactated Ringer's or the old Arthur Jones Gator Aid 50-50 H2O. You can bring them back from death's door with this stuff. Dead tortoise walk'in! Tell the folks about it man, thats a lot of torts.how'ed you do it. VM. pic 2001 TSA 4.5 ton confascation serviver.
