HOW TO RAISE BABY TORTOISES!!

As herpetoculture grows across the globe, new methods are surfacing regarding the care and maintenance of reptiles and amphibians. One thing that's now a constant is the realization that baby tortoises must be raised in a humid microclimate.

This often intimidates keepers because achieving proper humidity in order to keep tortoises growing correctly can be very tricky. Sometimes we over-think things and actually end up causing accidental harm. It's no secret that keeping tortoises properly and maintaining smooth shell growth can be a tough task but does it really need to be that hard to accomplish? The answer is NO and it's a confident no. In our BRAND NEW video we show you how to safely, cheaply, easily and effectively raise baby tortoises so that they not only grow naturally but so they'll be set up early in life for ultimate, long-term success.

I would love to see the video on "How to raise baby tortoises." There is a message saying the video is unavailable and it is private. What happened to it?!? My son came home with a leopard hatchling for an early Mother's Day and birthday present. Now I'm madly doing research so this little guy can have his best tortoise.

Thank you for all of the great information you provide. I watch a lot of your videos. I use to have 2 horse fields and a larger desert tortoise, 2 bearded dragons, 2 tarantulas and some cats and dogs all of them got along very well, but I lost all of them when I fell into a coma. My mom didn't want to deal with my pets so she gave all of them to a rescue. This happened about a year ago. I'm back and want to add the cute little Tunisian tortoise to my family and they are not easy to find, but I'll keep looking. Love your content!

Hello, I’ve been watching all your videos and I’m such a fan. You mention there are a few species of baby tortoises who don’t go through this process- which are those? You also don’t mention how often you feed and leave the lights on for your babies. Do you have more specific information available about your baby tortoise practices?


I’m setting up an enclosure for two baby Indian star tortoises.

This video was very helpful as I recently found a baby tortoise on my garden. I still have a couple of questions though. If I have a Texas or desert tortoise (Vet couldn't tell me the exact race), how long is this type of enclosure appropriate before moving it to a larger one? such as an Aivituvin. Also, if I'm measuring temperature and humidity parameters, what are the recommended ones for this type of enclosure?
