No doubt, I look at the pic of the first day we bought Opo. He was so small in my hand. At 2 years old he weighed a little over 9 pounds. At 3 Opo is a little over 30lbs. 20lbs in one year is amazing to me.Just a couple of years ago did you ever thing that the tortoise you could hold in one hand, would get so big so fast. I'm amazed how quickly they grow. Good Job!!
Hope everything is OK.Well we had a scare today. Opo was in the shade by the cactus plants for a good hr. Rose and I were finishing up the pavers for the base of Opo's new night box. All of a sudden Opo is running across the lawn and went right to his night box. He started digging in the back corner frantically. We pulled him out and gave him a good look for fire ants. Couldn't find any so we put him in his pool. He wanted nothing to do with it. I tried keeping him in there and spraying with the hose. We examined him again closely to find nothing. Set him down and he ran across the yard into his night box and scratching in the corner. Finally settled down and I watched him for awhile. Checked him to make sure he was still moving. Been a few hrs now and he still inside the box.
I figure he got stung by something or maybe he saw a ghost.
