Hi all, I am a new owner of a young Pancake Tortoise. I have been lurking around the tortoise forum for information on lighting, habitat, and diet in the weeks before his arrival, and you all were a big help! We have had him for a week, and he is doing great. Loves to eat and sleep. We live in Ohio and also have a 6 year old leopard gecko, 5 dogs (whippets) and a little boy.
I have wanted a tortoise for several years now, and I am so excited to have our new pancake!
Will try to figure out how to post pictures eventually...I keep getting the "photo is too large" message even when I resize first. I've taken at least a thousand pictures of our new guy!

Hi cincywhips:

Welcome to the Tortoise Forum!!

What would you like us to call you?

If you download a free picture program into your computer, like photobucket.com or tinypic.com, then you put your pictures in there and copy/paste the code into your thread here on the forum. Its very easy. Here's a tutorial:

Here's a few pics! So far Jack is doing well. He hides most of the time but I have seen him basking in the late mornings on his sun deck and he LOVES to eat! He will sit in my hand and eat and I love it! The dogs are very interested, but he is up in a very safe spot. It is chilly out this week in Ohio but I can't wait til it warms up so I can take him outside again.
Thanks for the warm welcome!
Catherine
