    They really are exceptionally pretty, but I'm afraid they remind me of Lucifer Morningstar's 'other' face!

    Some sizable branches fell off a silver maple at our house, I stuck them in the enclosure for enrichment and Rafiki is already having fun pushing them around:

    Here's some shots from 2012. The tortoises were still pretty fresh from the egg. Amazing to see how their colors have changed. Mandarin and Mimosa were so orange (hence the names) but now they're more red.

    Just spectacular...now if someone could just produce an albino cherryhead, I'd take out a second mortgage on the house for it!

    I know how you feel.
    I’ve been toying with the idea of picking up a male cherry head that is either strongly orange or yellow. Haven’t found one yet and I think my bank account is thankful!
