Doing great! I think she's getting cabin fever. Ready for some spring time sun. Haha I got her a friend across the room from her box. A sugar glider we named Dun Dee. I like to think at night they tell each other how well they got it. Haha

Gorgeous indeed! With my sulcatas and now young leopard tortoise I never feed any fruits or other, "sweets". I follow the rule that they are a shrub/grassland tortoise and that's what the eat.

Thank you guys. I don't feed fruits regularly. This was the first time she's ever had watermelon at all. Lol she's a grass eater mostly. I give her a strawberry top once in awhile.
