    Hello,

    In the absence of an official calendar contest this year, I thought I would start a thread for peope to post the photos they would have submitted to the contest.

    NOTE: There are no prizes, no calendar shipments, or purchases associated with this thread. This is just for fun.

    Please post only one photo "submission" in this thread. If you would like to share the high resolution copy of your photo with others, I will collect any submissions sent to [email protected] at the end and provide a link where people can download the images to create their own custom calendars.

    This is the photo we were planning to submit:

    upload_2019-11-15_20-3-44.png

    If there is enough interest maybe we can set up a poll and vote on the best photos. We'll see :)

    I have lots of pics of my torts that I love, but I think this one of Chili is the appropriate one in this instance.

    Sadly we don’t know he was literally left on a doorstep within a Rubbermaid tub! No note - nothing!!!! My friend has tortoises and this stranger left him at her house when no one was home!!! He’s the sweetest fellow & we love him.
