    Default I completely forgot to tell you all....

    Chip is working away from home, and he was in Loredo Texas. Well, he found a desert tortise walking in the city, so he brought him to his hotel. Well......

    I thought he was going to let him go back in the desert area, but he kept him with him. He is talking about building him a little pen in the yard when he gets back. He is now in some tiny town in Missouri, and it is so tiny he had to go buy a throw-away cell phone cuz his did not work at all. And this throw away one doesn't work well either!

    So anyway, I think we have a new pet turtle.

    LOVE desert tortoises. My gram actually has 2 that are at least 40 years old that she found over the years and one, Charlie, actually turned out to be Charlene and she lays eggs every year. So awesome! They are endangered so if you register them on the endangered species list (cannot remember the site) they can help keep track of them. How big is it, full grown or little still? They are fun but watch out cuz just because they have no teeth doesnt mean their mouths wont cut when they bite down. hehe. When I was young I was feeding apple slices to one and got too close. Let me say teeth would have hurt less I think.

    How cool! My stepmom had one when we were growing up (blanking on his name). How big is he? I remember hers had a shell about as big as a dinner plate. He was always cool with the dogs for years and years (like 20 yrs easily). He cruised the backyard freely along with the dogs no problem. Then she got a cairn terrier puppy Chloe and for some reason this tortoise HATED that dog. When he would see Chloe he would try to get up and stand on his 2 back legs, total attack mode, and actually did bite her face a couple times. After that my stepmom had to find him a new home

    Oh that sounds like fun. I don't have a tortoise, but I have aquatic turtles. They're fun too. I have a 50 gallon tank for them, they're just young ones, not very big. I'd love to do an outdoor pond for them someday, as they get bigger.

    There is nothing nicer than two sweet Bully girls, unless it's THREE sweet Bully girls!!

    That is cool. I have never seen one in person. We have sea turtles down here. Of course we can't have them as pets, however we camp at a state park that releases the babies nightly. It is wonderful to see these little things paddle to the water.
