    I am new to the forum...as well as to the tortoise world. I have been spending lots of time here (as well as other places) doing research to make the right decision before I purchase my first tort. I met a man today that has an aldabra about 14" long...not sure of age. He also has several large (over 100lbs) sulcatas. I spent time with the two different breeds....and I was completely taken with the aldabra. His was extremely friendly and sociable. He loved interacting with people, and kept walking up and sitting on my foot until I sat down to pet him. LOL Are all aldabras this friendly? I just spent the last hour looking at all the pics in your gallery, and it seems as if your aldabras are all very sociable as well. I am definitely going to do more research on this breed to see if it might be a good choice for me. I just wanted to say that yours look truly amazing....especially Cowboy! What a magnificent tortoise! You are so lucky to have him.

    ~ Straight up, Cowboy is the exception....all of our other males are not remotely as friendly and females not even close either. Please don't base Cowboy on other male aldabra's. There are friendly ones, however the truth is not all and many are fare less. I would say that aldabras are more friendly than sulcatas, however there are exceptions.

    Hey Greg, what kind of oatmeal was that you use for ants?
    I saw it on FB but can't find it. Couldn't remember if it was oatmeal or grits.
