They are the families new addition (since April 2019) and it is coming up to their 1st birthday! I personally LOVE them, I get so much joy from these two torties. I even write a blog that is purely dedicated to them for fun, if you search under Gamera and Tortilla you should find it. I’ll add some photos if I can work it out on here. 82567CE1-3A49-4DEB-A7D1-22B4AD3B0A15.jpeg 1E358B41-4A94-4C52-A842-F8CAF5A000E8.jpeg

    All my close ups are video’s of them eating! I was obsessed with them eating at first there is something mesmerising about it .....but I found one of them “not” trying to escape .... ED1F5B85-AB93-4956-ACB0-4F2EE47DD0F3.jpeg ED1F5B85-AB93-4956-ACB0-4F2EE47DD0F3.jpeg
