Found this little guy in the middle of the road. Couldn't leave my spirit animal to get crushed by the incoming traffic so I brought it home to my camp site. Torta will be happy here away from the city.
For your viewing pleasure, just a tortoise eating a banana. We were in Orlando last week for our daughter’s AAU National Volleyball Championships. We had a leisurely drive home at the end of the trip with some fun stops. My husband spotted these tortoises and we really enjoyed watching them and giving them a treat. #florida#tortoise#getoutside#nature#familytime#explore
These hatchlings only get 10 minutes to 20 minutes soak in water during sunrise and during sunset, they will drink as much water as they could the moment we filled their playpen with luke warm water, a few minutes later they will urinate and defecate during soaking, when the water gets dirty then we transfer them to a cleaner playpen, they will be hungry to feast on mulberry leaves or hibiscus leaves after soaking, throughout the day from 9am to 4pm they will sleep with the right humidity and temperature in the incubator... #startortoise#startortoises#tortoise#tortoises#reptile#reptiles
Ps. You can find some hatchlings for sell at @bigskyreptiles and @kampkenan
