Well spring is definitely here. Sheldon just turned 3 and weighs 23.5 pounds. Came through the first winter in his outside enclosure and shed. We will need to modify a few things for next winter. Definitely need to change out to a radiant heat panel as he is now to big to use a Che. He has been outside digging his burrow deeper we had to help him a little he ran into a rock shelf and Abraded his shell rubbing on the rock trying to dig them out. Glad the weather has warmed up we enjoy seeing him out and running around B7881705 E5E5 4FEC 89ED EE85B5FE50CF ED5064AC 92EC 4CA6 8836 31457DEF9580 F87D6743 7587 4DC4 ADC9 9E91506EA464

Thank you ? that exactly what I thought he was doing as well. We are going to modify the burrow so the lid lifts up so I can get him out at night it is to cold here at the moment for him to stay outside.

Well winter is part over and Sheldon is doing great he comes out almost every day to graze a little. His shed and nightbox have worked out perfectly. The only times he hasn’t ventured outside is when we got snow. He is now 33 lbs and will be 4 in April. It has been amazing watching him grow and see his wonderful personality form. Hopefully I will post more often A3221728 A6AF 4B96 B52A A3962E638B11 0383D6A8 A9B8 4954 9E21 C05D0DBF6568 501CE73B CCFA 4F22 9899 7D5F8C37F7E5 F2D1FB11 E558 41EF 96F7 AC365AFF7290

Well spring is here and we are having a traditional spring (snowing one day 80 the next) lol. Sheldon is now 4yrs and 36 lbs. we took advantage of the heated tortoise palace lol to keep my Mother’s Day hanging baskets. It nice to be able to have him graze on weeds and grass E329B3F5 9071 4C0D B562 962872CD7FA7 B1D5792D 8B6C 4C2B 9E5F 41482150C87E
