After a HUGE breakfast, Aladar makes final preps before 'kicking it' for the next few hours! I set out 5 lbs of Tortoise Lasagne for Aladar and the 4 juveniles...but Aladar got it ALL! He then proceeded to cruise the yard chomping down huge mouthfuls of grass...AMAZING! He is right at 23" and a hair under 60 lbs! ENJOY!

Big pig! In the second picture it looks like he's roaring at the fly on his shoulder to get off.

I often say that Taco is my little dinosaur.

Aladar is without a doubt your T-Rex. :p

How old is he? I'm a newb still but obviously loving his pictures like everyone else.
I love his little eye turned back as he "roars" at the fly, haha.

"Ah yes, this magnificent creature has a unique mating ritual, first he looks around, trying to lock in on a lucky mate---then throws his head back and with a giant breath.....HEEEEEYYYYYYYY----it is so effective, species of all kinds flock to be near him, to touch him.....shhhhhhh, lets back away quietly, we do not want to become the target of his affections-- these giants are fast...."
