    Oregon is full of wet moldy fungus-y goodness. Guess I might need to dehydrate and send out my "B grade" mushrooms for Xmas.

    That's one of the things I miss about the European forests, the berry and mushroom season! Here in Texas you could never pay me enough to go into those woods! It's just a big mess of vines, and sticks, you can't see the floor. I'm scared of snakes (just in the wild, pet snakes are ok). I loved the smell of fresh mushrooms when we brought them home in our little wicket baskets, clean them of grass, leaves, pine needles, cook, marinade some and most would go for drying. Oh, the smell of the dry mushroom!!!! I envy you guys!

    Troggy is hit or miss with mushrooms, but maybe I just haven't found the right ones yet. He will take pretty much any if I hand feed him, but will avoid them in his dish.

    I read somewhere portobellos weren't ok to feed? Maybe that's a myth (or maybe I'm mis-remembering)?

    Hmmm, I haven't read that, but then again we feed everything in moderation around here so I would never know WHAT upset their stomachs if anything did. The only time I was sure something messed with them was when Vern knocked over the gallon tub of cat food and had an all you can eat buffet while I wasn't watching.

    I second that. Also read some place that portabello is a "no-no" for torts. It didn't explain why though, and it doesn't matter since I can't remember where I read it anyway

    At the end of the day if Ruby eats all of her greens she gets to come out and pick at Vern's leftovers since they have a lot more junk food in them than her food. She's not quite ready for a big kid plate. 1455000195020.jpg

    @Oxalis She is ready for spring and outside time. Her tank has gotten a bit tight over the course of a massive growth spurt this winter. I haven't upgraded her because I want to wait until after we close on our house and move in so there has been a lot of out of tank enrichment time and I think she knows how to get it. *Crash, bang, thump!* MOMMMMMM! Let me out!

    She's swimming circles in the kitchen sink right now chasing floating bits of fruit.

    Aww, poor little doll! My Russian has gotten a little cabin fever-y with spring slowly on its way. Soon he should be out and running around in his outdoor garden enclosure. ;)

    I have 3 more redfoots who don't have a thread, might need to combine them into one. 1498879427610.jpg
