Fun day of what are likely to be the last pics of the year! This one is by far my favorite! Spike ate 7 snap peas today, on top of the tortoise diet and a full Hibiscus Flower! Lucky has almost completely slowed down.

They are really cool species from around my area. An underrated species. I didn’t have much of a choice. I didn’t want to get a tropical species with lots of color, and when these guys popped up, they seemed like the best choice.

Just remember, tortoises are a lifetime commitment. Lizards aren’t. My beardy isn’t as active as I would’ve liked, but I recommend a desert species.Easier to care for. Mine doesn’t care about being held, and is completely chill. My friends was agro af, and hated to be held, touched, or for anyone to be near him. It’s honestly a dice roll. When your at the store, I would go for the most active one.
