    So I found a snail in the garden and decided to put it in the closed chamber to see if the torts will eat it. And I put Kang in front of it. This is what happened. Granted it would most probably have been better if they had not just eaten. I will leave it in there and see what happens.
    Reminded me of the joke: what did the snail say while on the tortoises back?.......wheeeeeeeee 20181217_191113.jpeg

    I found mushrooms growing in the enclosure so I had to clean it out and put in new substrate. The problem is that I cannot always find orchard bark. So i had to go back to coco coir and milled bark for the top. Hopefully it does not become too messy. 20181225_191207.jpeg 20181225_191219.jpeg 20181225_191223.jpeg
