    I'm so happy to see that #28 got a spot on the calendar. It was slow going at first, with no one voting for the picture when it was upside down. But it turned around nicely when the picture orientation was fixed.

    We're going to have a very nice calendar this year. I wish we could put the username and species on each picture before it goes to print, but I've been told it's too difficult a task to do.

    But all of us still want to know which picture belongs to who, so please let us know which picture is yours. I'll start:

    Picture #26 is me and SO (16 year old male Aldabran tortoise)

    I submitted #2. My daughter calls her Ellie because she says there are letter E's on the carapace, but I call her Dale (Earnhardt) because if you turn her around the other way the E's become 3's and she is the Intimidator's # 3 car. She is an Eastern Box Turtle, Terrapene Carolina Carolina.

    I guess I shouldn't assume everyone knows the species of my torotise. This is Dexter, my sulcata tortoise. He's 4.5 years old and 40+ pounds, 18-20 inches long.
