Just a few shots of Troggy (I've made a habit of taking a shot or two on his weekly weigh-in day).

Oh, and Pikachu, making it absolutely clear that she did not authorize this whole tortoise thing.
So cute! What's the little dinosaur chomping down today?

Hello!
I am Adam.
This is a marvelous thread, most splendid.
Every day is like a new day with my darling Tidgy, I will never be an older owner.
She was near death when i rescued her 4 years ago and now.

My Millie Update -

Unfortunately I have no adorable picture to post, because I withheld dandelion from breakfast, and her Majesty is sulking in her flower pot.

I didn't get the new light off my checklist yesterday, so it's first up today! The fixture is under cabinet and it wants to be hung upside down..but it's a strip light. Much pondering on how to make this work to be done!

I've also been daydreaming about enclosures, and I I think I am going to take a hard look at a couple of @Tom 's designs, and see if I can mesh something together that will work. My only stumbling block is I don't have a way to cut the wood, but fingers crossed Home Depot will do it.

Specifically interested in these threads:

http://www.tortoiseforum.org/threads/heating-an-outdoor-russian-night-box.116180/ - @AnimalLady I don't know if you've seen this one, but I thought you might be interested if you haven't :<3:

I swear you're the best at finding stuff! Ty!!

I am loving all these photos and seeing all the different breeds of tortoises! That teeny baby is so darn cute. We have had our guys since Monday, one of them is going to his new home tomorrow. It's been neat watching their personalities come through as they get comfortable in their new home. My boston terrier Murphy seems to be a little wary and barks at them if they move. My bulldog can't calm down enough to meet one yet. Our enclosure is 6 x 3 and it was super easy to build. We lined in with a shower curtain. We added a cross beam yesterday so the lights and heater point straight down.
