Aww that's cute! Hopefully you can find more and maybe sell them to reptile lovers! THere's a Repticon coming up, even though they probably get them from suppliers, most of them are local breeders. Also, how many male to female ratio of tortoises do you have? I'm curious because most tortoises (desert tortoises) are anti-social/territorial. I guess tropical species aren't? I've only had experience with one!

That's got to be one of the best feelings in the world, and well deserved.
I'll bet you've been back in on all fours again and again. Is there more your thinking.
Cool stuff. Well pleased for you. Looks perfect too. But more photos will have to be supplied to verify that :D

I love people like that! @mike taylor, you and your Wife must be very very special people. I hope to have a pleasure of meeting both of you some day. I am in Texas, too, so who knows?! Our paths may cross at some point.
