||One year old|
||Spur Thighed Tortoise|
||Upper Makefield, Pennsylvania, USA|
is Torty! He is hairless, and he loves to eat romaine lettuce.
Torty does not like baths, but does like to walk very fast! He always
like to hide in his "jungle". He is fourteen months old, and I got him
for my sixth birthday. This is one special tortoise!
Torty is very funny when he sleeps on his big heated rock under his
sun lamp, tanning - and he chews his lettuce at the same time! He loves
to relax. And though he is very independent, he loves to play with his
friend, our other pet CoCo, the guinea pig. He also plays with a round
ball in his cage! He is playful baby tortoise!
