    Update:
    Ma & Mo outside

    But summer in Germany is over and again they have to live in their indoor enclosure: Ma looking into the camera, Mo uncertain in the background.

    Taking a shower every morning. Ma is enjoying her shower and being touched. Mo is usure what to do. Sometimes he runs away sometimes he just sits there and have a look what happens. Hopefully he will soon learn that I am not the big, big tortoise predator.

    A daily shower

    I am not good in making collages. Wait 5 years and you will see the "now and then" of Ma & Mo.:p:D

    They look great Sabine! Such beautiful babies. I wish I could come visit you and all your animals. We could have a Campfire and Karaoke night!!
