    Default Introducing: Stagger Lee

    First, I got a package:


    And then inside the box was a container:



    Then inside the container was a...




    TORTOISE!



    This is Stagger Lee, my hatchling redfoot tortoise.
    AW! Excuse the sphagnum moss all over him, he was shipped in it.



    Now, Stagger Lee is NOT very big, but my quarter size comparison didn't quite work:



    Per Turtletary's instructions, I tried to feed him right out of the box, but he wouldn't take it from my hand, so I placed him in his enclosure:

    "Nomz for me?"




    I gave him a hibiscus petal (yes, JUST A petal) and a small chunk of strawberry.







    There's the tiny piece of strawberry I gave him. The piece was SOOO small, about 5/8" an inch or so.




    He ripped up this piece of strawberry and had it all over his foot (which he then ate off):




    He makes noises when he eats and rips. SO CUTE.



    Tortie butts!!!

    I had to wash this dish as he stepped on the edge, dumped all the water out and dragged his strawberry foot into it.
    hahaha.
    "Warez mai nomz?"



    He kept trying to chew on the edge of his dinner plate, so I gave him his cuttle bone. Silly tortoise kept trying to eat everything in front of him, including the substrate!




    "This is not nomz. U took mai nomz. I no u did."



    "mmm...s'cuse me, I want some more nomz."




    "What, I haf not had enuff nomz yet!"




    "Don't u luv me?"




    "SUCKER."




    "Kthnxbai."



    Thanks for looking!

    OH, there he is!!!! What a pretty pretty baby! I think he is more red than Austin! Very cute pictures of him eating and I of course always love when they speak to us!!
    I guess now I must find a red hibiscus! Austin will of course be seeing Stagger so spoiled and be mad at me!!
    The box was very specific! I guess people are not as afraid of tortoises and turtles like snakes and lizards and such!
    Congrats, he is beautiful!!
    Austin really loves his dandelion if you can find some of that too! Flower or leaves!
    Such a nice tortoise! I love him too!
