    I`m not new here but I thought I should create a new introduction for my daughter's tortoise Stuffy. I decided after a lot of thought and no small amount of begging from my daughter to get my daughter her own tortoise. I'm sure I'll end up doing about 95% of the work caring for Stuffy but she absolutely loves her tortoise and to be honest my little girl has me wrapped around her little finger so I don't mind a little extra work to make her happy. I bought her an elongated tortoise. I was sent pictures of a few different individuals to choose from and she chose a very unique looking little tortoise. Stuffy has a very sweet and gentle personality. View attachment 265887 View attachment 265888 View attachment 265889 View attachment 265890 View attachment 265891 View attachment 265892 GEDC0743.jpeg

    Adorable! I’m a firm believer in teaching kids responsibility and pers are a fun way to do it... especially when you go in it knowing that you’ll shoulder the load! Congrats to you , daughter & stuffy!

    Very interesting shell pattern, Victor. I wish you and your daughter many happy years of tortoise-keeping. I've never kept elongated, but they're interesting tortoises.

    Hi, great to see more people with elongated! They are one of my favorite species! They are very friendly and social, very gentle! I recently just added a second one. Great choice!
