    No I didn't think about that but what's funny is it looks like an aircraft on her front marking ImageUploadedByTortoise Forum1427287004.517380.jpg

    Commander Adama would not be pleased.

    How many leopards do you currently have, or is this the first?

    I just had 15, 2 leopards, one Sully, 10 boxies and my son has 2 RS. I just gave my first leopard to a family member after getting it started healthy, and gave away one ornate to a neighbor that let me set up her enclosure, so 13 currently and that's too many, or not.

    I'm still haggling with my girlfriend to go from one redfoot to three at the end of the year. Do you just take care of them over the summer for people?

    I've had box turtles for several years and once people find out it just turns into I'm the turtle guy and when people don't want theirs anymore they call me. I've set up several outdoor enclosures and once I feel like its safe I add them to my main enclosure. I got really bored this winter while my turtles were in hibernation so I decided to get into the torts, we have 100 acres in the country and once the Torts get to a size that I can't handle anymore, I will build a tort paradise. This is my main enclosure for my boxies, its just started to warm up so a few are out of hibernation and everything is starting to grow.

    I love it when people include the occupant when showing habitat pictures. That is truly a paradise.
