Remember when growth lines were kind of a big deal? Now it seems like I always have my “silver rings”.
Someone said torts are solitary creatures and maybe they are in the wild but I love my sister. We sleep together, eat together and hang out together. We’re never too far apart.
Friend Carl’s hibiscus aren’t blooming yet but ours are. So tasty and almost a little meal in themselves. Mango still disapproves.
My new tub is actually my old travel bin. I used to have my hidey hut and food dish in here with lots of room to roam. Having it as a tub is fun though. I can make hippo faces at mom to make her laugh.
This little guy has been stalking me since this picture. First he watches me eat for a good long time and then he came to visit me in the outdoor pen. Friend or foe? I guess I’ll have to wait and see.
We don’t have a hidey hut in our outdoor pen. Come to think of it, we don’t have one indoors either. Mom wants to get one for outside though so we have a shady place to go. No need though, we very much enjoy burrowing under our hosta. We can completely hide or just observe what’s going on. Problem solved!
Hi friend! Mango is a leopard tortoise, some call her a “high white” one though. She’s getting lots of black spots in her new growth so who knows if she will stay that way though.
As for noms, mom’s favourite place to look up food is on the Tortoise Table. Here is the link. Good luck!
