Hi everyone! This is Tortellini Alfredo (or at least currently, I'm not 100% convinced on that name) and we've had this little stinker for about 2 weeks now ? We don't know it's sex yet but I've just been using male pronouns out of habit so until I know for sure otherwise I'm gonna stick with that lol.

His favorite things are climbing whatever he can reach, clovers, bananas (sparingly), and staring at you judgingly from across the room. We absolutely adore him already ?

Here's little Sheldon (10 month hermanni) enjoying some sunshine and alfresco munchies in his make shift outdoor tub.
I love just sitting here with a brew watching him destroy his lunch... hes so violent ? I see why people refer to them as 'dinosaurs'.
For something so 'small and helpless' they're not half tenacious little machines!

Such a little character, he's totally stolen my crusty black heart ??

Still figuring out the perfect name this little one arrived this week on Tuesday but I have been in hovering mom mode making sure this little cutie starts off on the right foot for a healthy fulfilled long life.

Hey new owners!

Yeah, you :) The ones with 100's of tortoise pictures on your phones and so many funny tortoise stories to tell!

As a brand new tortoise mom, I am experiencing that new-parent excitement where you want to talk about your baby All. The. Time. And I know I can't be the only one! So, I am starting this thread as a place to share the joys, the excitement, the wonders and the worries of being a new owner. And I want to hear all about yours, too!

Please feel free to post pictures of your torts, give updates on how they're doing, tell funny stories, talk about your current and future plans, and any other interesting tidbits you've picked up along the way!

Easy done :)

Get it? Got it? Good!

Let the Show and Tell begin!
