thought of another one!
..when you take your silk house plants and plant them in the dirt in the enclosure!

I have a beautiful 3' tall palm type plant that will never die and looks great!

.... When all your friends are worrying about their babies and you're just like, 'my tortoise didn't poop today ):'

.... When the most interesting thing in your house is your reptile room.

.... When you love them so much you change their water FOUR TIMES A DAY.

.... When you have a good number of friends on Facebook simply because they have pet tortoises.

… when your friend complains about the loud noises coming from the box turtles and tortoises who are temporarily in the house during a really bad storm, and you didn't even hear it because you're so used to the protesting any time they have to come inside.

When I am riding in the car with my husband and I see a bunch of rocks in a field I think "those rocks would make a neat hide and decorations for my tortoise pens". When waiting at a stop light today on the way to work I saw a vacant lot with a lot of weeds and thought "look at all those weeds my tortoises would love them", but then I thought that they probably had fumes on them from all the cars that go by and probably would not be safe to feed a tortoise".

... When your neighbours find you crawling around on all fours in the garden looking for weeks with a massive grin on your face.
... When the same neighbours find you standing on a chair to look over in to their garden to see what kind of weeds they have... then you consider going around to ask them for some.

At the moment there are no weeds but I can imagine this is just going to get worse when Spring comes.

:D

...when you tell people "it's for my tortoise" and get weird looks.
...when your whole FaceBook page is posts from friends & family of tortoise related things.
IE. buying calcium carbonate from a feed store.

Since getting Boosh my Facebook has been full of posts from other people with tortoise related things. I thought this was just me! People tag me in everything tortoisey and I love it!

Oh and another...
... when you're out shopping, call your fiancé and the first thing you say is "can I speak to Boosh please" then proceed to have a 10 minute "conversation" on the phone with your pet tortoise in the middle of a shop.

Just me?

I haven't done that yet. Of course I live alone and there's no one there to answer the phone :)
