Have you traveled with a tort yet? They DO NOT like car rides! My poor Acura STILL smells!!

This will be the first (and only) trip! Thanks for the heads up! I measured Mac's shell to be 30" long by 26" wide ON THE CURVE. Not a SCL measurement... He is 23 years old. He is going to my sister's home in Tucson from norther New Mexico. Humm 9.5 hours with a disgruntled tort... in less than 3 weeks. I'll try to get good pictures of him and will post his weight and SCL soon!
:D

I still havent measured Tank. He's big, very big. He might be 30" SCL! The more I look, the bigger I assume he is!

Thanks! I loved decorating the box! He's inside now, but doors are open and he's free to come out whenever he pleases! 1393946591971

Yay! He looks great. Did he eat yet? I'm dying for a size comparison, put something familiar by him for reference

He ate A LOT. By that I mean two cups of Mazuri, two cactus pads (7 inches each), a head of romaine, the skin of one apple, and he grazed on the grass for almost an hour solid. :D He's a BIG BOY. He doesn't go for the hay, so I'm going to cut it and start adding it into his mazuri.


And size comparison coming soon! Tomorrow I'll grab a ruler or something.

I'll roll him over this weekend and get an accurate measurement.

No need to roll him over for the measurement. Just roll out a tape measure next to him while he is eating and take a picture from the top looking straight down.


I just love this guy! I told my chapter president about you and him today. She was thrilled to hear it.

I hope he's done growing! He only has two inches to spare, then he won't fit through the door!

Time to go get some wood!
I'm currently trying to re-do the front panel. Bigger door.
This guy is BIG.
