    They are beautiful! What species of tortoise are they? I was originally thinking Greek, but they look kind of like Hermans with the dark body pigmentation. :) Are they eating and growing well for you? They are very cute--nothing cuter than a teeny tort.

    Hahaha! Watching too much T.V. can have one good side effect, I guess. ;)

    Your torties are adorable! My only complaint is that you didn't include an item for scale in the photo. Are you planning to keep both of them and raise them together?

    I wonder if clutch mates get along better than unrelated tortoises in the same enclosures?

    I must admit that ive never seen the programme.

    I picked Storms name and my partner chose Chase. More so because wen we first put Chase in all Storm was doing was chasing her. Thats y the name was picked lol
