    So I went today to pick up the Hermanns that Wendy (Glitch) had offered for adoption. It was an hour drive to get there then an Hour and a half back (Dallas traffic), but the little guy made it thru with no problems. After a warm soak and then some softened Mazuri he has settled in nicely.

    Thanks again Wendy, she gave me a lot of extra stuff and a great tort table...

    He is gorgeous! I'm like an excited child every time I see a Hermann's, and I think that one is the same age as Emrys? I'll be following any updates you do! :)

    He is about 2 1/2 years old and so far he has settled in pretty good...

    Yep, about the same age as Emrys. So much darker in his markings, though! :)

    Glad he's settling in well.

    I think he was mainely a inside tortoise, I am sure he will lighten up once he gets to spend some time outside. Once we predator proof his outside enclosure I am sure he will enjoy all the space he will be getting..

    Nice looking tortoise, I also like the color patterns on the shell.

    Thank you very much...
  17. Oh boy he's gorgeous! In fact he looks very much like my Hermanni, Queenie. After Survivor I'll send you a pix of her...

    PS I am so glad you went and saved him...

    This little guy is very territorial, if we place our hand in his enclosure he comes running full speed then stops a few inches away. He's super sweet though, he lets me rub his head. :D
  19. It turns out I don't have any full body shots, all of these show what a dainty ladylike eater she is. So tomorrow I will take some better shots of her for you.

    I think I'll create a whole thread tomorrow just to show how beautiful Queenie is...
