Hello! I'm a 14 year old who has grown up around tortoises my entire life. My family has pictures of me from when I was so little I could barely walk with some of our Sulcata tortoises, but I was never all too interested in our tortoises until recently I got my own Galapagos tortoise from a family friend. I watched it start pipping and hatch out of egg A8 and it was probably one of the most amazing things I've seen in my 14 years of life so far, so I wanted to document my tortoise's life as much as I can since I've never seen another Galapagos tortoise's life documented from a candled egg to a giant adult. It's name is Mulberry and it can be identified by the "T" pattern it has on the first vertebral scoot. IMG_0903.jpeg IMG_0936.jpeg IMG_6094.jpg IMG_7021.JPG IMG_6438.JPG IMG_7019.JPG

Welcome! Thanks so much for including us in your documentation! Just wonder, did Mulberry hatch just yesterday? And also, what’s your name?

Congratulations and welcome to the forum - not many people get to start with galops. I look forward to seeing this one grow up!
