How many pumpkins did you give them? Do you give the pumkins whole? Can the bite straight into pumkins? That is too cool!!!

The first picture is of a 60 day old hatchling and the second is of a one year old aldabra. Both were captive bred and hatched at our program in Naples, Florida. (pic.'s 2010)

We get whole pumkins every season, as many as I can load up. Yes they get them whole and bite them apart, some we cut in half with a large knife. They love them, little pumpkins grow all over the fields after they eat them. They do not last long, lol.

Wow, doubled in size in just a year! Too cool. They look sooo cute!

So they are able to bite into a pumpkin, holy cow that is awsome. It looks like they enjoyed those pumkins a lot :D

They love pumpkins and watermelon, the adults manage to bust them open, however we do cut them sometimes, mostly for the females.

The little boy with the carrot is the best picture ever. Is he one of your children?
