    TTPG was another success this year. The presentation list was a little turtle heavy this year, but there was much to be learned. Every year I learn from just talking to other tortoise nerds in-between the presentations and at the meals we all share throughout each day.

    Michaela did a great presentation on Forsten's tortoises. If you didn't already want this species before her presentation, you did after.

    Ever seen an albino desert tortoise? I never had. Check it out:
