    Thanks, Tammy! He really is totally adorable!!!!
    Jacques hasn't been on lately because she's not doing well. She's alive but has developed a Mystery Ailment. I will make a separate post about her on the Health thread one day soon.

    Congrats, I hope you enjoy him . I have 2.1 and they are really neat to watch. I have 1.0 in his own tank because he is too aggressive to be with even the female all of the time. The other pair are pretty peaceful with each other.

    Hi, gang! Since several people have inquired about Jacques, I posted a rather lengthy summary of her medical journey in the Tortoise Health section of the forum.
    Thank you ALL for your inquiries, love and support!!! :):<3:

    Yesterday evening I heard a small voice from Nelson's tank:

    Nelson (waving from the filter intake): "Ma-am? Oh, MA-AM!!!! Over HERE, please, Ma-am..."

    Me: "Why, YES, Nelson! What is it sweetie?"
    Nelson : "I was just wondering, if maybe...is it...erm...is it dinner time yet?"
    Me: "Actually, dinner time isn't for another half hour, but since you are SO sweet, and polite and adorable, yes- you can have your dinner early!"

    Nelson: "Oh, THANK you!!! YOM NOM NOM NOM..!!!!!!"
