    TortoiseForum turns 6 years old this month!
    I can't believe how quickly the time has passed! This community has done so many amazing things for tortoises everywhere in those 6 years. Our members have coordinated the adoptions of hundreds, maybe thousands, of turtles and tortoises. We've helped countless more animals get better food and care by educating their owners. I'm so amazed at what this site has become and I'm very grateful to be a part of this community.
    The moderators and I are working hard every day at improving TFO and keeping it free and family-friendly. We have some big changes and exciting additions planned for the last part of this year. You'll be seeing and hearing more about that soon.
    Thank you to all you tortoise lovers out there who really make TFO what it is. Without you all out there wanting to help each other and have discussion, there would be no community. Thank you for the opportunity to support this community and please let us know how we can improve!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TFO!

Its help me take care of an animal that I had no idea about. Its helping me raise healthy torts! :D with out this forum who knows how much bad advice I would have taken in and bestowed on my lil man! People find me annoying at times, always talking about my guys and all the little tid bits of information I learn almost every day. But meeee I couldn't be happier to learn and see other peoples story's and advice. I LOVE!!! Can't make it big enough LOOOOOVE!!!! This forum!! So thank you josh very much! :D because with out you and all these experts (who by the way thank u too) I'd be a list soul with unhealthy torts sooo HAPPY 6th BIRTHDAY!

    Josh, you're a good person! Thank you for starting a site that has helped thousands, if not millions learn more about our reptile friends. The wonderful group of volunteers who devote their time and energies to make this forum successful is a big part of your success. I, personally, learned more than I ever dreamed. I have even rescued a tort here and have gotten involved in reptile care locally since joining. Thanks for a wonderful 6 years TFO!!!

    Josh & TFO, thanks so much for all you do. let's hope the next 6 years are even better, though i don't know how that could be! just want to say that if i had to depend on books for care of my samson i don't think he would even be here today! i've learned so much from this forum and all you "experts". from the very bottom of my heart thank you and happy birthday TFO!!
