    RVs winter dinner

    Well yes, technically it's not winter, but the Bermuda is done and she's a demanding girl. She'll block the door making it difficult to go outside; my 60# goofball pity gives her much leeway.

    RV's first taste of summer

    She is a HAPPY girl! Temperatures these next few days stretching north of 105..106° so a treat is in order. We've been watering heavily as to have the Bermuda grow for her, and her grazing has increased. She is a very happy girl.

    I've been delinquent and ask your forgiveness. I hope everyone is being careful, observing safe distancing, and are stocked up for the long haul. There is a sulcata board on facebook.. the owners there seem fumbling in the dark and I've been trying to send them here, In the back of my mind...

    Shell Rot??

    Will the athlete's foot cream treatment also apply to RES? I've been gone 3.5 of the last 4 months, came home and I'm concerned for my RES. He lives in a kiddie pool, plenty of sun (no basking rock - he somehow uses it to jump the wall), active and good appetite. His shell seems soft in places...

    RV wants IN!!!

    So we've been having some trouble with the sliding glass door. Off its track, the track is dirty, doesn't want to slide... It's a very irritating thing. Then we realized RVs banging on the door trying to come through the glass and so I pulled the wrought iron slider. Now she is camped out...

    Surgery on female sulcata on TV last night

    Did anyone else see Exotic Vet episode last night? There was an egg-bound sulcata that required surgery to remove eggs.. Most of the eggs had somehow migrated up into her ureter, a few others were in the Fallopian tube area (not sure, just in the wrong place). The shells were extremely hard...

    Why did the soft shelled turtle cross the road?

    a few shots of RV

    so here goes... enjoying a nosh. She is such a dainty eater... the beginnings of a yawn. Very surprised to get the double row of serration on her lower jaw - no wonder they can chomp thru thick stuff... Practicing Aladar's pose. Very lucky shot of a yawn.
