    Hi Heather, in the report they first talk about special palm trees that only grow on the Seychelles but after 23 minutes they show the aldabra tortoises living on the Seychelles.
    I miss you too Heather, but my time is short these days.

    Quick update on my little aldabras. They grow like weeds !
    Mo actually weights 900 gr and Ma 713 gr. They eat like pigglets.
    Here a few pictures. Ma looks into the camera and Mo is always on the run..... Silly torts !

    Ma, eating a kind of mazuri produced in Germany.

    They certainly are. But then considering just how big they get, it is within proportions I would imagine.

    Thank you Linda.
    But it is really so easy to "grow" tortoises. :D
    Only the right temps and humidity. Added with good food, -that`s all:tort::tort: and they grow like a weed.:D
    My sullies too. They grow so big in 3 years ! Maybe I have the "green" thumb for tortoises...:eek::D

    Fresh grass in Germany. Ma and Mo taste it for the first time in their life but it seems to be yummy !

    ....... and a short video. Please watch what the torts do when they see the camera coming nearer to them. Ma in the foreground stops eating and looks into the camera. Mo in the background stops eating and turns away.... Silly, shy tort ! They are totally different from their character.
