    Its gotten hot, and while that drives me and my kids inside, my tortoise is loving it.

    Re: Tortoise weather

    She's just smaller than my hand, so 5 1/2-6"? still a baby, but she grew a TON last summer, and I expect her to grow a lot this one too. She's now in a 8x14' enclosure, a BIG upgrade from her previous 4x4 enclosure.

    We have the following growing for her to nibble at her leisure:
    Bermuda grass
    Dichondra
    wild flowers
    Hibiscus
    snail vine
    water mellon
    broccoli
    corn
    squash
    radishes
    peas

    and other things I cannot think about, we kinda went crazy with our seeds, and anything on her safe list was planted. her water dishes are also set up with the drippers, so she has fresh water every day.

    it was just a rocked section of the yard, so we raked rocks into piles, which she climbs up and down when she's out. I'll try to catch a picture of her basking, its pretty funny - legs, and head stretched out as far as they can go with her eyes closed.

    Because her most active hours are between 9am and 11am, so unless I'm working from home, I miss seeing her out most days, which is unfortunant.
