    I've been blessed for 12 years. No problems except a slightly elongated beak. I somehow must have done a few things right. I'm only learning what those things are since finding tfo and my mistakes also. Merry Christmas to you also. He's eating great. Am making a few changes from info found on this forum. Hopefully...another 12 years. Thanks for your encouragement.

    Our city needs a reptile vet. He would make a good one. What is still scaring me too death is holding my darling Saphire's jaw and head long enough and not hurt him. I'm working on a plan. In the meantime he's eating and the other stuff...

    The collective knowledge of the forum members is unlike anything you will see from any other source. I once thought it would be a good idea to write a book on the information one could compile for this forum alone. What I soon learned is that writing a book would be an act of futility, as new information and experiences too dynamic to ever incorporate into static print. Even some of the more seasoned tortoise keepers here stand to learn more from others' experiences. I've been raising turtles and torts for many years and learn something new or different every time I visit the forum. There are so many members that have aided me and I am repressed to call them all out, but I would like to throw a special "thank you" to @Tom whose advice and direction to me has been beyond measure. @Tom : thanks for all you do bud!
