Small Fry, the Pet of the Day
Name: Small Fry
Age: Seven years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Russian Tortoise
Home: New Jersey, USA
   A native of Uzbekistan, Small Fry is a seven-year-old male Russian Tortoise. He joined our family in December 2008 and has been delighting us with his personality ever since. He loves to go for walks outside, and he's very fast for a tortoise. When he can't be supervised in the yard, Small Fry enjoys exploring his sandbox and catching some rays. He's an excellent climber, so we have to be very careful.

    When it gets cold outside, a heater makes it safe to explore bedrooms and admire "the tortoise in the mirror." After exploring and playing, he can often be found curled up in or under a blanket. He also enjoys being cuddled and looking out the front window at his vast green kingdom. Small Fry has a great personality, he perks up when we talk to him, craning his head at the sound of his name as he scurries over to visit. He is full grown - between six to seven inches from end to end. Small Fry enjoys being hand fed and loves to eat endive, dandelion, romaine and tortoise chow. We love our little buddy and are thrilled to be able to share our home with our cute, cuddly, reptilian friend.
