What a cute little guy. We just had a discussion about Egyptians. A member has 2 females looking for a breeding male.Today we took in an adorable, tiny male Egyptian tortoise. He was raised from a hatchling by a single owner for 23 years. The owner wanted his little tortoise to serve a bigger purpose and asked us if we would use him in our animal program, Crawling Critters Zoo.
He quarantined at another location for almost 3 months and we just brought him home today. He has signs of a dry upbringing and his beak isn't in the best shape. But hes alert, active and otherwise healthy.
He'll be soaked daily for a while and will get an improved diet.
It's been fun researching this species in preparation for this little guy. He's still in his temporary housing but tomorrow I finish setting up and monitoring temps in his new enclosure.
This little guy makes me realize how much Levi, my leopard tortoise has grown!
His name was Ramsey but we've decided to call him, King Tut! The kids like names that are fun and easy to remember
