    I've got sulcatas, sonoran desert tortoises, a dalmatian hermann's, a leopard, a group of breeding Russians, ... and now I'm excited to add my first Greek to my family!

    This is my new Mesopotamian (Golden Greek) baby that arrived this morning from Arizona Tortoise Compound. I named him "Apollo." He's had his first soak at my place, sniffed his breakfast (then ate most of it throughout the day), and roamed his Big Fat Greek Enclosure (it's 5' long x 2' wide x 1' tall) like it was nobody's business. Now he's already burrowed in for the night.

    No questions or concerns, just wanted to share the news and some pics. Thanks! IMG_20180713_105443.jpeg IMG_20180713_110520.jpeg 20180713_094030.jpeg IMG_20180713_101646.jpeg

    Apollo weighed in at 22g this morning. He's actively eating, exploring his habitat, and basking. Love my little guy 20180729_053119.jpeg 20180720_103939.jpeg 20180720_051247.jpeg IMG_20180714_065602.jpeg

    Apollo got a girlfriend this morning! I bought an "incubated for female" Mesopotamian baby from Tortstork. She has phenomenal coloring! She's a month younger than Apollo. These will be in my Mesopotamian breeding group when they are big enough. I believe both are Jordanian.

    Some pics of the new girl are below. I named her "Theia." 20180823_101714.jpeg 20180823_101745.jpeg 20180823_101825.jpeg 20180823_102347.jpeg
