for me a dream came true and I got my two aldabra tortoise babies yesterday. They have made the long journey from the Seychelles to Germany where I live.
I am ready for giving them a good life and all what they need as long as I live and after my death too.
I would be glad when you, dear reader, are interested to accompany my torts ( and me ) on their way of growing and thriving.
I think I don`t have to explain their names. In loving memory where they come from I named them Mahé and Moyenne.
They are only one day in their new home and I can already say that they are different in their behavior.
Mahé is the smaller one with the red color spot on the carapax.
Moyenne is a little bit bigger with the yellow color spot on the carapax.
Both seem to be very healthy and having a hard shell. They began to eat a few hours after their arrival yesterday and are eating well today too.
But now it is time to share brandnew pics of "brandnew" tort babies.
Mahé on the day of arrival. "Waving" into the camera. "Hello, I am here !"

Moyenne on the day of arrival: "I don`t want to see someone! Let me alone."
