When you have a framed photo of your baby tort at your work cubicle.

When you sit in front of your tortoise's enclosure and baby talk to him and suddenly your sister show's up and says, "Eww is that what you do all day", and your answer is "Yeah!".

...you make polymer/FIMO torts because you don't have room for the 10 different species of torts you wish you could have. [GRINNING FACE WITH SMILING EYES]

When you leave a long random shoot of hibiscus alone when trimming bushes just because there is a flower bud on it.

When half of your 1st floor is a tortoise enclosure.
When you go the zoo and pick their weeds instead of looking at the animals.
When you get tired of explaining the difference between a turtle and tortoise and saying I have tortoises NOT turtles :)-

Forever telling people what the differences are and that I'm getting a tortoise, not a turtle!!

I usually explain it this way, “Every tortoise is a turtle, but not every turtle is a tortoise".


When you film on your phone your tortoises breeding and the first thing friends ask when arriving a your place is, “Really, how much tortoise porn do you have on your phone? "

Oh.My.God. I am so glad you are okay. You are okay right? And your friends are right on. Those beautiful flowers may have chemicals added to stay beautiful from Chile to US/us. So, totally, do not feed to tortoises. But LOL, funny note. Yep, you are known for your love of tortoises alright. Three car high speed crash ... your tortoises are lucky you are still here! Dang. Yay! : )

You should see looks I get. You would think they never saw a tall white redhead [FLUSHED FACE] let alone carrying a bunch of lettuce [FACE WITH STUCK-OUT TONGUE AND TIGHTLY-CLOSED EYES]

When you steal seed from various plants from a park..
Or when you find yourself imagining what your torts would sound like if they were to talk...

Okay okay.. I know I'm weird ;)


One time I asked a neighbor (older, asian lady, I'm not sure if she can speak English..) if I could take some of the dandelions in her front yard and she turned back into het house and ran away screaming...
