We will be adding a new member to our family. A desert tortoise. He is currently with a friend of mine who will be moving to Tennessee 🙁 . She can’t take him with her, So we will become his guardians.
It is illegal to “own” a desert tortoise, but you can be a guardian to one that has be kept captive for it’s whole life. So, guardians we will be. And darn good guardians, I might add. We’ve been reading up, and getting ready for his arrival. My husband even made him a first class luxury burrow. Pretty dang awesome, if I do say so myself.
It is made with bricks, ply-wood, curved border bricks, and lots of dirt. Kinda like this.
I’m thinking I might have to sprinkle rose petal at his door step to welcome him to his new home. Tortoises love rose petals. Hopefully not rose stems and leaves. Afterall, I am getting really fond of those roses.
