Hello our tortoise friends,
It has been a while, life got a bit crazy but it is so good.

Herbie is 15 months now.
“He” is 1800g (3.9lbs). Enjoys all the food, we able to get cactus pads as well. I kept throwing left overs all around the yard and now we have a cactus growing in random places - hope it will survive the winter.
Herbie’s indoor enclosure is 10 x 3 sitting in a living room and he absolutely loves it.
Loves to have his hide out facing a little window so he can keep an eye on everything.
Favorite foods:
Dandelions, clover, mallow (managed to make it grow all around the yard), grass, steals some arugula sometimes, Mazuri and a cucumber mixed in sometimes - it does not cause any issues I skip the seeds part.
Soaking daily. He also has a big Pyrex with water in his enclosure, he likes to sit in.
Here are some pictures taken today.
Hope everyone enjoys some Herbie cuteness.
My assumption of gender is leaning towards male as his shell starts to show slightly concave shape on the bottom - time will show.

Ha well I came to the right place before Herbie arrived so from day on (in my care) he is in closed chamber, warm, soaked and well fed.
Already starting to move things around. Good that most of stuff if relatively secured as we already have a bunch of clumsy dogs.
