I rescued my little guy from Petsmart yesterday. He was the bigger guy in the cage and didn't look too happy. I've wanted a tortoise for years now and when I saw him I had to bring him home. Today he seemed to be doing well exploring his new home and soaking in his water dish. And eating. ALOT. I am afraid he wasn't properly being fed at the pet shop since they had re-hydrated green mulch in a food bowl. Poor guy. His carapace seems a bit dry and is peeling a bit but I'm hoping with a new diet and his UV soaks he will be ok. I live in New York City in an apartment so I hope he thrives in his indoor home. And since we are currently experiencing snow and below freezing temperatures I don't want to risk taking him to the vet in this weather. Oh I forgot the most important part of the introductions! My name is Haydee and the little dude is Mr. K. Cecil. Buy all his close friends call him by his first name, Killer.
