    My guys were living it up in their new yard this summer

    It's been awhile since I've been on but my guys have been growing great, and I do mean guys looks like all three are boys (so much for temp sexing). We're working on permanent retaining walls to separate everyone's territory, until then I'm sure my neighbors love my combo of blocks and logs...

    Lost Sulcata tortoise in Columbia SC

    Putting this up here just in case, I have a 2 year old sulcata that my boyfriend let roam the yard while I was away (I'm sure I told him to only let the big guy out unattended) We're not sure she's missing but its been 30 ish hours now and I cannot find her anywhere. Just putting this out here...

    Tortoise in the walking dead (spoilers)...

    Hahaha, point but its more that a good fantasy show should be about suspension of disbelief in one aspect (here zombies) with all other aspects as "normal" or "real" as possible to showcase that change

    Tortoise in the walking dead (spoilers)...

    guess it depends on the timeline, I was assuming it was after year one and I doubt it would have survived a zone 6/7 winter

    Tortoise in the walking dead (spoilers)...

    So I was too busy bitching about that red foot being non native to realize that she was about to eat it and was caught off guard, I gasped and my boyfriend rolled his eyes like obviously she ate it. I'm still mad that they weren't representing w native boxies :)

    Baby Pearlscale goldfish just came in!

    They are called pearl scale goldfish and were bred to have pearled scales (calcium deposit under the scale that makes it look round) and a fat deposit on either side of the rib cage to add roundness. I found mine from a rather questionable ebay seller as explained above. They are less common...

    Baby Pearlscale goldfish just came in!

    @Prairie Mom heres a video from last night, I was sneaky so as not to scare them so its a bit dark and blurry but you can see them come up off the bottom. One even gets caught in the bubbles around 2 minutes, then you see my cat jump up and ruin everything ;)

    Baby Pearlscale goldfish just came in!

    Thanks! I love them too. They were literally straight out of the shipping bag in this video so I think they were just scared and stressed. In the couple of days since this video they've become much more active. I bought them from a distributor not a breeder and I think they are more skittish...

    Baby Pearlscale goldfish just came in!

    Oh my gosh now I'm trying to imagine what a full grown pearlscale with dropsy would look like...Its kind of scary :P They seemed to do great in the mail, they were packaged in a foam cooler inside a box and all seemed active as soon as I opened the box (honestly I was bracing myself for DOAs)...

    Baby Pearlscale goldfish just came in!

    I mentioned on the aquarium thread that I planned on getting Pearlscale goldfish this summer. Well I found some! They are in a ~17 gallon quarantine tub so I can make sure they are healthy (treat for flukes/Ich) then they are going to go live in my 100 gal patio pond with my Japanese Trapdoor...
