Of course, it is only appropriate for my first post to be an introduction to my pet tortoise, Macantosh! He is a seven year old red footed tortoise. Usually, people’s first impression of him is his size. He is huge! Because I have had him since he could fit in the palm of my hand, I always fail to realize how big he is. He is 15 inches long and weighs about 10 pounds! But he is a gentle giant! He loves taking walks in the yard while snacking on clovers. (Yes, you know you’re a tortoise lover when you actually try to breed lush weeds in your lawn!) He will even eat leaves out of my hand and climb on my lap to beg for food! You can probably tell how smitten I am with my pet tortoise. Hopefully, some pictures will help you understand why I think he is just so adorable! Check them out below!
And of course, you can look forward to seeing much more of him in the future!
