    Hi! My son is 8 and he just earned a Russian Tortoise after having worked all summer for it. He has been wanting one for 2 years. We are all excited in this house to have this little guy with us. Reading and learning as much as we can and enjoying just watching him. Here is a pic of him after chowing down on some kale. What peaceful creatures :)

    Wow!!! Two years wait and working all Summer. Sounds like how I at last got my horse at age 16. But truly, the best things in life are not always free!
    Lovely little tortoise and congratulations to your son. Hope this will be a long and wonderful relationship, and thanks for joining this forum - the people here are great.
