While I was flipping thru my over 1000 photographs in my computer I saw a pattern with Mary Knobbins' pictures.
For whatever reason, it looks like I take her pictures head on...

She is evidently tired of my camera in her face...this is what it looks like just before she bit the lens...see her tongue? lol

omg! This is really an exceptional Sulcata. It's too bad she is so young and I am so old. But somebody is going to end up with a 100 pound ill-tempered, adventurous, homely beast and get the best years of her life. View attachment 337447 View attachment 337448
Aw'ww Maggie, Mary has such a beautiful mug!
She must be showing us her "GOOD" side. . .

I kinda think it's one thing for me to say my tortoise is not pretty...but for you to call her flat out ugly??? Maybe you just haven't had your morning drink to change your personality to nice, from jerk
I don't care, , , I think whether it be Mary, OR Bob, they are beautiful, Maggie. As in anew born baby's face. . . in a Tort kinda way

Don't they though... show their feelings in their eyes and expressions and even how they hold their head.? Animals talk if we can read them.
My sweet Elvis, he is 6 months old

They definitely DO. I have my sweet Elvis, 4 dogs, 2 cats, 1 piranha-keet (flesh eating parakeet), 1 leopard gheko, 6 crested ghekos, 1 very special bearded dragon (named Booger), 5 cheekenz, 2 rats, and 9 ball pythons of varying beautiful and colorful hets ??‍♀️ way better companions than the disappointing humans near me

Hahaha! Its a mean parakeet ? she bites harder than any of my snakes I've been bitten by-seriously- so I call her a piranha-keet. A piranha is a type of flesh eating fish from South America. I know you've had to have heard of them

Yes, and they bite in and around your cuticle area-at least my little psycho does. I've had her for 4 years and I work with her! She still will not be nice! She even killed her roommate parakeet a couple years back. I found out they are not to be housed together, but rather in individual cages near each other. Strange.

I took over a pair that left a permanent scar on the previous owner. I've not experienced their bite but I listened to the lady that owned them. That doesn't mean I'm smart it just means I listened ? they do know where to bite though to inflict the biggest amount of pain.

I know what you mean. My little critters and even the wild animals and birds around me say thanks in their own way. They give me little precious presents when they trust me enough to try and talk to me. It might be just about their needs but it means they know they can ask if they need it.

I am so gullible. I thought that your flesh-eating parakeet was a real thing like you know, jackalopes. Those are real.
