    The Tortoise and The Hare. This is Peter the Cottontail, we’ve been assisting the local game warden with rescues this spring and Spur decided to take our latest rescue on a stroll. I added the music, because I felt like it fit

    Always good to see Spur, that was a cute video. I showed my daughter, now she wants a baby bunny. We compromised, king-size candy bar and a trip to the video store. Thank God.

    Been meaning to post this awhile back but it’s been busy around here. But I put some some lights and a heat source in the tortoise cabin. It’s not how I’m going to have it set up permanently, but I just wanted to have something in there. It’s been staying in the mid 80’s at night here so the heat source hasn’t been totally necessary but I gotta get everything completed before winter!

    We are already running a small zoo here! 2 horses, 3 dogs, 2 cats, 2 ferrets, 2, torts and a couple fish.. usually have some form of wildlife (especially in the spring ) but I have turned down all my foster requests this year due to Pickles & Crusher... I can fill up 8 acres like you wouldn’t believe . And I also have 2 girls in addition to my son ..

    Sounds like us!
    A couple years ago we had 3 horses, 3 dogs, 2 hermit crabs, fish and 2 kids.
    Down to 1 dog and 2 sulcata hatchlings.

    Added a kid though
