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.

Darwin is one fine-looking beast, and I LOVE his red legs!!

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.
