    Short update today: Ma & Mo got a piece of water melon and they loved it ! It is a rare treat.
    I took some pics and two short videos but every time Mo saw my camera he turned away and walked quickly into his hide. Silly tort !
    I am the big, big tort predator / eater..... buhhhhhhhh.....:eek::D

    They look so small on the pics but both are bigger than my hand ! :)
    Ma sits in the foreground and don`t felt disturbed by my camera. Mo was always "on the run".....:(
