My Tortoise garden is ready, I've figured out my food for Elvis... everything is ready to go, but where is Elvis (He's left the building)? I keep checking his box in the recesses of the garage and I do not hear any growing movement. I checked on him two weeks ago and he was sound asleep. When I startled him, he hissed annoyance. Elvis went down on November 1st and I know he will let me know when he's ready, but I guess I'm anxious to see if he likes his new digs. Elvis is an adult desert tortoise around 12lbs. I live in So Cal and the day temps are now hovering in the low to high 70's. We have rain coming next week and I was going to wait until; after to bring him out. Anyone have tortoises up and about yet?
