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!

Goodnight friends. Big tortie kisses and good dreams.

White clover flowers are like tortie popcorn. I could eat tons of them!

Hi Waffles!!! I was wondering what type of tortoise is Mango?! She's pretty rare! By the way, I have two tortoises, Rocco and Catalina, and I would like to know if you may have a list of fruits, vegetables or plants to eat, I need help :( pleasee

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!

The weekend means more work on our outdoor pen. I supervised with the excavation and made sure the equipment was in working order. Once the new hibiscus was in, I gave it the old walk around to make sure it wasn’t crooked. Next mom put in some grazing grass but by the time that was done, I went for a nap. An important part of being a hard worker. Our home is coming along nicely.

Waffles ur pretty cute but I dunno. Senator Stanley is pretty cute too! xox Glad I found your cute face!

Who is this Senator Stanley fellow? Is he a tort because if he is, I assure you I am cuter.

Learned something new last night. Apparently sulcatas are known as the “crying tortoise” because our eyes get watery as you can see in my picture. Our eyes water as a way of expelling salts from our body. Who knew?! Now you can believe that or just think of me as a tort who is sensitive and in touch with his feelings. Now tell me about your day and let me give you a foot rub.

Hibiscus season is near! Mom brought home a big hibiscus bush yesterday and the one friend Erika gave us is full of buds. I only get a flower every now and then but soon I will be swimming in sweet, tasty flowers!
