Kudos to you and your family. Tortoises really are so special and have a way of making people fall in love with them so quickly. I know it had to have been really hard to put her back where you found her, but you truly did the best thing you could have, for her and her species. Please don’t become a stranger. There’s so much great information on this forum and a lot of great people too. Sticking around and letting us help will make your journey to owning a tortoise much easier and less stressful.We returned the hatchling to her former shade tree and she was so excited! She took off exploring and SHE ATE!!! We stayed with her for a good hour and then a storm began to roll in, so we returned home. I noticed that she keyed in on the weather change because she headed closer to the tree trunk to take shelter. It was so cool to see her natural instincts guide her. I wish her a happy life!!….Now to do more research and find a tortoise that I can actually keep! We already miss her!!
