I like that! Ima be doing something to to keep his favorites good as long as possible!

Though I prob only spend like 5 dollars at a time for his food! 🤗🤗

I’m still wanting to get him other foods for him to try but it’s hard to find many things at my local grocery stores!! Like turnip greens and others aren’t available locally!!☹️

Do you have any asian grocey stores around you? If you do, try and see if they have something called "mallows." Tortoises like those.
Also endives, chicory, escarole are good too.

Also..I am debating on getting him a bigger tub so we can get him chicken wire and what not for his lights 😁😁

But I am not sure on the size! I have a 105 QL sterilite tube now from Walmart! Is
This sufficient enough!! I’m asking because of exercising purposes without me assisting!! 🙏🙏

I think it would do for a while but he might grow out of it quickly! If you find anything bigger that would be good!
Also, for the chicken wire, if you can't find anything suitable, try and get a terrarium screen something like this:

Easier to use. You can get different sizes too.

This is great help!! 🙏🙏

Thank you! I will look into it!

Ima see if I can find a 150 gallon tub or something for coco!
Cause I think by mid year he’ll be twice as big as what he is now! 🙈🙈

Hey guys..doesn’t these pictures resemble coco a lot? Haha

Cause I know the local desert tortoises here are definitely darker in color! This is amazing! I use to have a bearded dragon close to his colors! I was devastated when he passed away...8 years ago now...Dang..time flew! 🙌🙌

Question? Is their poop supposed to be slimy and firm? I haven’t noticed him pee that much either!! It’s probably because I don’t handle him as much anymore!
I let him walk on my hand so I can pick him up to soak him and then have him walk around my room or bed for a little bit before he goes back into his enclosure to to sleep!

Hey guys...it’s been a minute!

No issues really just updates on my baby!

He’s growing and his color is coming out more and more! 😍😍
Also he grew out of his hide so I bought him a new one! “Returning the previous one!”
Working on getting him a outside enclosure now and I also got a 200 Q tub! He’s currently in a 105! Definitely an upgrade! Gonna put chicken wire so we can also put a tub bulb for UBV!

Anyways it’s spring time here so petty soon he’ll be able to go out for some sun during the day!!

He definitely eats well!
Today I gave him a little bit of dandelion greens, a piece of kale, endive, Napa cabbage, one spinach leaf and some dry stuff! Raspberry greens, rose petals and marshmallow greens!
Coco is spoiled! I am enjoying doing so! He’s worth it! He has already given us lots of laughs and memories! 🥰🥰
I wanna get a bearded dragon next but we will see!! 🙏🙏

Got him a bigger clay pot!!
Any suggestions is welcome!!
Getting him a regular plastic tub hasn’t been a great idea either due to space!!
I’m going to make time to get his new house done this week! 🙏🙏
