I guess I never imagined that turtles/tortoise has such personalities. That's great!!!!
The first one we had didn't have nearly this much personality. And Bradley is still in his own little world. He's still pretty young. So, maybe it's an older tortoise thing? I'm hoping the new guy turns out like her. She's just a riot.
I was laying out back a couple months ago trying to get sun and she kept coming to me wanting me to pet her. I'd rub her head a second and go back to reading my book. Then she went to the foot of the lounger and was trying to get on it. She loves to climb and for a tort that big with such short little stubby legs, she does a really good job. It was too high though and I assumed she'd given up. Until I got jolted. The little brat was trying to knock the lounge chair over. :roll: That went on for several minutes until daddy got tired of me telling her to quit it and got her a water bottle to play with. Goofy girl!
Wow... I never knew that they could have personalities. What are the pens outside composed of? Id be worried that they would wander off somewhere. I guess we all learn something new everyday!!
The pens are just plywood with 2x4 frames. They're inside a fenced area. The new guy learned yesterday that if he pushed really hard he could pop the fencing out of the ground and go under it though, so we had to do a run to Lowe's and get 2x8 treated wood to attach to the bottom of the fencing. Now we're hoping he doesn't decide to burrow under. If he does we have to dig up 3 feet of the ground straight down and drop rock or lumber or something - concrete maybe? - and then put the fence back up. Ugh!
