Sooo…I’m slaving away at the hospital and my nephew goes to my house to let the dogs out and finds a surprise. Tiny Tim is the only male that has been near Zigzag and 5 1/2. I was given the impression he was infertile. No other male near for 5 years. Both females have laid fertile eggs in the past. 6 foot block fence. How did this miracle happen?

Oh my God!!!!
Ssooooooo cute!!!!

Hey you!!!!
Where have you been?
We ALL have missed you terribly.
Glad you are ok.
Work must be crazy?
Congratulations on this little guy.
What a perfect name “Tiny Tim” 🤣
Is he a dessert tort?
(Looking at the front legs, he doesn’t look
“Sulcata” to me?) but I am NOOOOO expert.
He is absolutely gorgeous!!!!
Now....
Soak...

I actually have missed you also. I enjoy your posts.
Are they Gopherus agassizii? I used to head start hatchlings for my sister who operated a turtle and tortoise rescue in Central Calif, people who"accidently" bred them then bring these clutches of Gopherus hatchlings to her then I would head start them, giving them a somewhat better chance at life. One year I got 11 Gopherus hatchlings and 23 Sulcata hatchlings at the same time...oh Lordy did I have fun...seriously. I wished I still could have them, but Oregon...oh well

Yeah but no, he is Houdini the Jerk due to his escape exploits, and I treat him sooo good and he hates me, The Jerk part...lolololollololol. Last night he managed some freaking way to climb out of the bin he was in (cuz of the fire) in the bathroom at the front of the damn house. He being a Redfoot and extremely temperature sensitive the bin was on the bathroom counter so the heat from a small black light bulb could reach him safely. So my cats and I were in my bedroom at the back of the house when "CRASH" and their heads swiveled and they jumped so I go in search of crash. Guess who. He is laying SPLAT on the floor slightly stunned. He seems to like his outside pen with no more escape attempts but he does not want to be inside in tort table or bin... the Jerk!

That's what some little miracles are. A blessing that slipped thru our reasoning. Woops 😄 I was wondering how you've been doing. Did you finally get rid of the scorpions?🤗
