    Thank you! I love them to pieces. The eggs were given to me as a gift. Only three hatched in June. They are doing remarkably well. The parents are in Florida but for security reasons, we don't disclose the location.

    I'm so sorry! lol. This is a pretty special friend. I went from no pets to an enclosure in my kitchen with three Galapagos tortoises! And wow are they growing fast, especially Brahms. They all hatched 1 week from each other. Brahms was last and is the largest. He is a little bull dozer! They all have very distinct personalities, for such a young age.

    Thank you! They certainly grow on you quickly with their own little quirks and personality. Pretty amazing.
