    Cute Greg :)

    So, when you say gentle giant, do you really mean it? Is he really gentle? He's not pushing up against her or eventually going to bulldoze his way through?

    I think about the Sulcata bulldozer stories, lol.. Like Leanne's Frankie breaking stuff or Maggie's Bob trying to climb into her lap and the pain he causes.. But these massive ones aren't like that? Is it really a gentle cuddle?

    I have no experience with them...so I'm actually asking :D

    Cowboy has never showed or displayed any aggression!

    He looks to have a smile on his face. If tortoises can love humans, he sure loves her.
