Welcome Sarah!! Oh wow, you have got to be really excited! What kind(s) of turtles have you had? How did you decide to take the plunge and get a tortoise, and why a Leopard?

Thanks everyone! I've been wanting a tortoise forEVER!
I've had mostly sliders and musk turtles, many of them given to me because they were unwanted (friends would give them to me after getting them from fairs and carnivals) Lots of them came to me in pretty bad conditions but nothing that proper UV, nutrition and basking spots won't fix. =)

I have always LOVED the leopard tortoises because of their GORGEOUS shell patterns, and of course the size they reach. I LOVE big reptiles.
been doing LOADS of research on these guys and I fall more and more in love with them.
Can't wait to start a little garden for him (or her). I LOVE gardening.

I ordered the little tortoise from Ben Siegel and will be shipped out on Monday for Tuesday arrival. I have all the stuff for his set-up, just gotta set it up =)
