    Mazuri breakfast! Well, a couple small nibbles at least. But that's a good start! 20190404_051248.jpeg

    One thing that helps to identify the Testudo graeca from other tortoise species is the random black spotting on their plastrons. Atlas is certainly developing his own unique pattern now... IMG_20190416_173426_376.jpeg

    It grows everywhere here in Arizona. I get my pads off a huge, 9-foot tall prickly pear that is growing in the alley behind my house. The optunia fruit that also grows on it is almost in season again! It's the only "fruit" I'll feed my torts because it lacks the sugar content.

    There are some folks on Facebook that sell and ship it. One that comes to mind is Ryan Steward at Southern Reptiles.
