    Thanks for posting this. Good simple facts of husbandry are a bigger contribution than many seem to realize.

    I love how she’s still eating while being hoisted:D

    I’ve noticed that female torts can be a lot more tolerant off situations than males. But that might just be the ones I’ve seen
