    I was away for two days, and when I got back this morning Darwin plowed through a pile of soaked mazuri before exploring his outdoors enclosure, nibbling weeds around the edge and devouring a few hibiscus while working on his tan.

    It just occurred to me that he passed the one pound mark as of this morning's weigh-in.

    Some pics of Darwin enjoying his lunch today...

    As soon as I put the food down, he sniffed his way out and began to eat.

    Today's lunch was greenbeans, mushrooms, papaya, squash, and reptilinks.

    Thanks... I'm completely in love with him and think he's remarkably handsome, but I'm biased.

    It's a nice warm day in Westmoreland, NH, so the non-hatchling tortoises are enjoying the outdoors.

    Darwin had some sweet potato, mushroom, mazuri, and a hibiscus, but before I went inside I saw him munching on some weeds as well... he'll miss his outside enclosure when the warm days are done.
