Luckily our new yard has plenty of space to roam, because we now have a beautiful little leopard tortoise!
His name is Genbu, and he's just adorable. He has a slightly runny nose we are keeping an eye on (luckily I know an excellent reptile vet because of Loki), and he's a little shy, getting used to his new surroundings, but he's perfect.
He's only about 3.25'' long now - but he'll get bigger!
A few pictures.
|Loki and Genbu. This cracks me up because it is about a half-second before Loki realized that Genbu is a living, breathing creature and started to puff up. She had no idea what to think of him!|
|My sister-in-law Alicia with Genbu|
And a few of Loki just so she doesn't feel deprived with her new "brother"...
|While my in-laws were here, Loki was running around like crazy. Then she jumped off me onto the seat of the couch, stuck her head under the blanket and fell asleep.|
