    Another new baby! Say hi to Yoshi!

    This is Yoshi. He's part of the new pair of babies (Golem as the mom and Moses as the dad) born between late October or early November. He's a lively little guy who won't hesitate to smile for the camera and run around (yes he actually does run). He likes people and his favorite food is cut Mango!

    My Cherry Heads are picky eaters. What can I do?

    One of my torts started being picky a while ago. He refused to try anything new. He was housed with another female. Instead of feeding them apart I fed them facing each other so he could see her eat. The second he saw her start (she's not picky at all) he started eating as well. I think seeing...
