Lo! The Spring Approacheth!

Whenever the sun comes out and I feel the touch of Spring (like today, though it was COLD), I wonder how many more days it will be until our tortoise wakes up....


  1. Oh my goodness!!--this just popped out right in front of me. I have a Russian Tortoise, but Doodle looks like a much bigger boy than mine.

  2. He's a pretty good size for a 50/60 year old CA Desert/Gopher Tortoise. He was smaller and weighed a bit less when we acquired him in 2003, but I think his growth was hindered by a HUGE bladder stone - since we had it removed he's gained weight and is a much happier little dude!
