So I decided for a more informative post . Ok, I'm no expert. Everything I've learn was through research, asking lots of questions and having lots of suggestions. So in this post I will show Thor's enclosure , how I take care of her and her beauty regime and food. On her enclosure I use two types of sources. I opted to use a mercury vapor bulb UVB/UVA for the basking area also a daylight bulb for natural extra light output. At night a ceramic heat emitter do its job perfectly . All this controlled with a 12 h cycle automatic system. I keep Humidity around 60% controlled by spraying water daily. Her beauty regime, consists on daily soaks and weakly scrubs. soft baby tooth brush do wonders to her shell. Once in a while I apply some organic coconut oil and aloe vera on her shell to help with hydration . I weight and measure her every two weeks. As for her diet, I feed her two times a day, with random combination of lettuces,spring mix, kale, lamb's lettuce, mustard greens , grasses, dandelion and other herbs. I offer pellets and Mazuri every once a week . Every other day I sprinkled her morning meal with calcium supplement and vitamins. I also keep dried herbs, grasses and flowers stored, to give her during winter . Fruit, such as strawberries, raspberries or apples once a month and only as a treat.
So there you have it. In the end we try the best we can. There is no stupid questions when regarding the best care for your reptile, so if you're not sure, just ask. There's always someone who will help you.😉🐢💪
