Hi I had a quick question. I have looked and looked and I ( shamefully ) cannot tell whether or not my tortoise Odin is a greek tortoise or a golden greek could you help I posted a picture on my blog. I'd submit but im on mobile. Thanks!
Hello friend! Oden looks like a golden Greek to me. Maybe some of my tort friends would like to give their opinion too. What do you think friends?
Good morning friends! I’m enjoying some tub time yoga stretches before I start my long day, eating all my new sprouts.
We have a sulcata at work and he's 10yrs/~90lbs. I wish we could just lure him along a path with some browse, but instead we have to try to lift him over 2 fences and get him into the back of a golf cart when we move him for programs.
Oh dear! It sounds to me like you might need a ramp or two!
Hello Waffles & Mango! Have either of you tried brussels sprouts before? They're similar to cabbage and I thought maybe they would be a good treat for cute torts like you!
Brussel sprouts? That sounds tasty! Mom looked it up and we are allowed to have them so maybe she will pick them up at the store next time. Yummy!
It is with a heavy heart that we learned that our friend Lunchbox passed away. He was very small due to a birth defect but lived a long and adventure filled 10 years. He had the fattest turtleneck we have ever seen and was a good sport whenever his brother Kirby tried to eat his shell. We will miss you Lunchbox and promise to take good care of your mom and Kirby at thewhimsyturtle.
Waffles & Mango
Is it time to get up already? Just five more minutes ok mom.
Snuggle sacks are fun but mom and her sweater are still the best.
Hi waffles :) i was wondering if you or Mango ever make noises to get your mom's attention. I've recently discovered that my tortoise likes to make a loud squeaking noise when he wants attention.
Hi friend! I have never made a sound but Mango made a loud squeak while she was sleeping on mom. I should learn how to squeak so I can call mom when I want more food or bum skritches.

Are those cozies instead of a hidey-hole? Because that’s brilliant.
We got our snuggle sacks last week and we love them! They are so cozy and we can tuck in tight in the corners. Mango really likes hers. She naps in it too.
Have you met our dogbeasts yet? From left to right they are Molly, Bailey and Beans. They are good dogbeasts and they taste good.
