When I was walking past the Aldabran tortoise pen this a.m. I noticed that Bo was standing up real tall on his back legs, but the front end was still resting on the ground.



And I'm pretty sure that So (The Smaller One) is a girl because the tail is quite a bit smaller. They are 9 years old this year and about 100lbs.

Dale did that and my boys didn't understand at all. I remember emailing you Yvonne and you told me what it was. Now I know how they reach the female. :p

Which, when you think about it, isn't all that long! I think Sulcatas are about 12 or 15 years old (but it really depends upon their size). And you really can't tell on desert tortoises until they're almost full grown!

I guess I never thought that far in advance. What if I have a male and female. What about breeding and nesting. I'm gonna have to get into research mode. I hope there's stuff on the 'net about it.
