    So glad you found her. I know how you felt, the tort in my picture escaped and just showed up in the middle of my yard a week later. I never thought I'd kiss a tortoise but I sure did that day. He didn't like it.

    sulcata tortoise+brucellosis

    Update: Dogs don't have brucellosis or herpes ( who knew), but they have coccidia. So more meds and even more disinfecting. lol If it ain't one thing, it's another when you have animals in your family.

    Heartbroken and need to vent to ppl who understand

    This doesn't include tortoises ( at least not mine) as they are NOT dumb creatures! If they were we wouldn't need to constantly try to out smart them when they decide they don't want to stay in their enclosure!
