The two of us side by side prove that there are no leggies as sexy as tortie leggies!
To my surprise I got a message sent to me from mom’s mom. I’m told I can call her my tortie nan!
"Hi Waffles & Mango: You must be so proud of your mom. I’m sure she is making an impact on how other torts are cared for with her great tips on tort care. I bet your Mom’s mom is very proud of her too! As a matter of fact, I know she is!"
Having a bit of a lazy day today. Tucked myself in to the hidey hut real well and even took the ball to show I don’t want to play either. Now food has arrived. Maybe mom will scoop some in here.
Did you know that this is my first Christmas? Mom told me that one of her favourite things about Christmas is getting cards in the mail from friends and family instead of just bills and junk mail. I told her that I can’t wait for my first card but then I remembered that no one knows how to send me one. Me and Mango got together and decided that if you send us a Christmas card that we will send one back. So if you would like to send us a Christmas card, please send it to:
Waffles & Mango
332 Cundles Rd. E.
Barrie, ON, Canada
Don’t forget to give us your return address!
Hi Ducky! We are entering our first winter ever so mom has been looking at different ideas for winter ratings. She wanted to buy me some hibiscus but can’t find any at the greenhouses. They said to try in February. What she’s working on now is growing an indoor grazing garden for us. She bought another under the bed bin like the one we live in and some soil to put in it. She ordered some tortoise grazer seeds and it going to grow them in the bin. Right now we are waiting for the seeds to arrive. Until then, we are eating spring mix (no spinach), dandelion, kale and radichio from the grocery store on top of our Zoo Med grassland tort food and Repashy grassland grazer gel. Happy eating!
Hi friend! Mom buys me Exo Terra uvb bulbs from Petsmart. They cost around $15.
Hello friend! My favourite thing to do is explore. I like to check out everything on the room or if I’m outside I like to make trails in the grass. Mango likes to burrow in blankets and pillows. If she sees something soft that she can tuck herself into, then she goes for it!
As requested by Soundingthefalsealarm, here is a picture of our home. It is an under the bed storage container. We use reptibark for substrate and the hidey hut is an upside down storage bin. We currently have four lamps which are just desk lamps from Walmart. Each side has a basking lamp and a uv lamp pointed at where we like to nap. Mom is starting to look at options for a new more spacious home for me soon. How exciting!
