Hello everyone, I'm a first timer in this forum and I find it extremely interesting. I've had my tortoise for 4 years but she's nearly 50 right now. I inherited her because the former owner thought I'd be the right person to take care of Shelly (I was in vet school at the time, now I'm a vet).
I came to this forum because I was looking for new things to add to Shelly's diet and when I googled pumpkin seeds the first site that came up was this one. I'll keep browsing now because it is a really interesting forum. I hope to learn a lot more about caring for these wonderful reptiles.

ps: oh Shelly's missing some pieces of her shell and her nails on her right front limb because the former owner had 2 akitas that thought she was a toy and chewed on her repeatedly. But she lives happily in my backyard now =)
