Good news! Phoebe has no parasites! 😀 She is fit as a fiddle and has a date with a vet (wit woo!) He’s never met an adult hingie before so she’s off to meet him 🙂 

Congrats Phoebe!!  you’re looking good and confident and like you’re loving that sunshine. I hope your date went well, I can’t imagine anyone wouldn’t be excited to meet an adult hingie like you. I know I would!

Homemade Calcium Blocks

TortoiseForum.org – Have a tortoise or other calcium-needing critter that doesn’t like the traditional cuttlebone or powdered offerings?  Try this homemade option, shown here with awesome pictures and clear, detailed instructions.

Great recipe and another must read post for tortoise owners! I believe I saw this first here on Tortaddiction – Homemade Calcium Blocks Step by step. Note the part about the need for UVB for calcium to be metabolized! 

I can’t recommend tortaddiction highly enough! Lots of informative posts for those willing to take a read. Lots of pictures to illustrate her points .. and obviously.. shelled cuties abound 🙂

Tried to upload these earlier but my phone denied me. PACO SHENANIGANS! I kissed him, he returned the kiss my snorting as much of my neck skin into his nose as he could (feels really weird btw) and then did his version of cuddling (digging at my chest and neck) Before deciding to perch like a baby or a parrot. Goober. 

This is my favorite kinda tortie snuggle! <3 <3

Trip outside with a delicious treat of their favourite foods – strawberry, campanula, dandelion, clover and grass. Then to the reptile shop for some more of Georges ark-vits.

Look at them! <3 so happy!

Seriously I just gave her a bath.
Don’t even know how she accomplished this.
Baby’s just rude.

Despite human’s frustration, Pearl continues to practice her front line maneuvers undetected. Camouflaged and barricade, all in record time. NO FEAR! #Turtpocalypse
