Wanna see something cool @wheremyscalesslither @the-awkward-turt @turtlessuggest

Whoa! Tiny pancake tortie coming soon! 

What @courtnashe is doing is called ‘Candling’ the egg. This is how you distinguish a viable egg from one that isn’t going to turn into a tiny baby turtle or tort! Shining a bright pinpoint light behind the egg, if it is fertilized you will see a shadow on the egg, a spot that will become a tiny baby shell friend! Within a week you’ll begin to see a larger, rounder, more tortie like shape in the egg! With more time, more of the little creature inside will be visible and eventually, like here, they’ll be waving Hi from inside the egg!!  Around 66 ish days that little turt or tort will push through the shell and enter the world ready for domination. How awesome is that?!

THIS IS SO COOL! We can’t wait to meet virtually meet you tiny pancake friend!!! Thanks for sharing this awesomeness @courtnashe !

You may remember THIS post back in June when @Jeffmusk ‘s mom found a box turtle laying eggs in her yard!  On Feb 21st, 8 months and some harsh weather, four little guys worked their way into the world!

Meet Scuff, Quart, Rocky, and Penne! @JeffMusk is doing a good job of keeping an eye on the little ones while humom and dad set up a healthy space for them, out of the poor weather.

Read all about them, from finding the eggs to their growing interest in exploring everything around them at JeffMusk’s Blog!

Hey all! This is Armstrong. Could he be cuter? Not really. He’s a fighter thats for sure.  

He has been making his way despite a serious right arm issue that desperately needs treatment. He and his human are living in the Phoenix, AZ area and could really use some help!

I’ve sent out some emails to see if anyone knows a vet or rescue that might help and am still waiting for responses.  Maybe you know somewhere  or someone too!? 

Take a minute to read more about Armstrong below. Visit his website and, if you can,  make a donation to help him get the care he needs. If you know a vet or rescue that might be able to help let us know! 

Armstrong is growing by the minute, and as he grows this issue will grow with him. Spread the word, send some love, a donation, or information if you can. 

High five Armstrong, you’re quite the inspiring shell.

This is Armstrong.

He’s about a week old. A baby sulcata tortoise. He’s adorable, tiny, energetic, outgoing, fast and strong. 

All this despite his injured front right arm. Whether his shoulder is dislocated or his humerus is separated from his scapula, something is wrong. 

I need to take him to the vet this week to find out just what is going on, and how to fix it. The problem is, of course, money. The vet tech I talked to today said that the vet is generally really good about working out something to help in tight financial spots, but I won’t know exactly what that means until I bring him in. And not bringing him in is not an option. 

If you are able to help Armstrong, or if you know anyone who might be, please contact me and pass this along. He’s just a week old and he needs all the help he can get to make sure he gets a real chance at a long, healthy, happy life.
