When you walk in the door and you see your furniture rearranged, your heart sinks. For, you know there has been an intruder in your home. Immediately, I suspected what had happened. Only one intruder gets stuck under the living room chairs and carries them with him to the dining room.
Sure enough, the back door was open and Tony, my 75lb African Sulcata Tortoise had entered. I will not show you the evidence! I do not understand why he cannot deposit everything in one place but he doesn't!
You know how hard it is to carry an object of that shape and size to the back yard?
I do know one thing: you cannot scold a tortoise!
African Sulcata's grow to between 150 and 200lbs and live well over 100 years. They reach adult size at about 30 years. Tony is about seven years old.
When your day is busy and you have writer's block, you can always post on one of the small pleasures in life!
