    Thank you. They all get the same attention but my Western Hermanns and the Aldabras are my favorite. I don't tell the Leopards, Burms, or the Sulcatas that bit.of info.

    Wow!! That is absolutely amazing. Sometimes I feel like I have my hands full with just one, for now on when I start feeling overwhelmed I'm going to think of your 44 and just tell myself to suck it up. LOL

    Nice! I love seeing people’s turtle rooms. Wish every keeper would do the same.

    What locales of t.h.hermanni do you keep?

    How will you keep those Aldabras as they grow? I imagine some Galapagos in my very distant future, so I like hearing people’s ideas.

    For my Westerns I have 2.4 Apulia, 2.5 Madonie Sicily, 2.4 Tuscany, 1.1 Ragusa Sicily, 1.3 Calabria and 1.1 Nebrodi Sicily . And I will have an insulated pole barn for the Aldabras once they get older. Looking to buy another place in 2019 with 3 plus acres for them

    I love your setup. And I love your pictures. Please please don't ever stop posting pics. It would be very selfish to keep them to yourself.

    Thank you. Until now i have kept all my Torts to myself and of course my neighbors think I am strange but love watching them.. I enjoy tending to them before work and after in their winter house. Life is a bit easier in the summer as they are in their outdoor pens 24/7. I did make my life easier a bit and installed a sink to soak them that drains outdoors and a 50 gallon rain barrel i fill once a month with hose. No more dragging buckets outside to rinse their bowls.

    Very clever. So far I only have one teeny tiny one to soak. So very simple for me.
