Vladimir, Rasputin, and Dostoyevsky?

Hey. I like that combo! Now I have to get 3!
Haha. These wild caught Russian torts are underweight and were really dirty before their first soak. They were so hungry when I put them down on substrate they immediately started eating it! I don’t believe they have eaten since they were shipped over here.

That is SO sad! How ppl can be that cruel, I will never understand...

Please make sure these guys are housed separately to avoid bullying or berserker rage-outs where one or more end up stressed, hurt, or dead.

Oh my gosh! Have you all see the choices we now have in the emoji department?

🐾🐂🦏🦀🐀🦖🏕🎆⏰⚔:tort:💩🤖 to name just a few! I looked for one that would simulate Jaizei, but there are too many to sort through.

It's drizzly outside, I'm lazy and the kittens won't allow me to work at my desk and get my tax stuff in order, so I'm wasting time here. Most of you are NOT on the computer to waste time with me.

They didn't stay little very long. They're five months old now and almost as big as a full grown cat. I was going to show you a picture, but the camera's battery is dead. I'll do it later.

It's hard to get a decent picture of Patch because she's such a mama's baby she comes to me whenever she sees me.

I am going to keep them inside till the end of the month to monitor their health, and if everything is okay they will be put outside to live.

We are getting ready for our lunch.

We have another Burmese star (Geochelone platynota) hatched this morning.
