    His name is Porter and he's a 3 year old Cherry Head Red Foot Tortoise. He's about 5" in diameter and will grow to about 12". I alsmost went with an African Spur but they get 200+ lbs. and over 2', that's just too big for my newly landscaped yard. The nice thing about these, they do not hibernate.

    I had a desert tortoise most all my life but he had to go as he could never stay healthy so close to the coast.

    interesting, do they dig? When we pulled in our driveway from seeing POTC3 my kids spotted a huge tortoise just walking through our property. It was a great site. In Fla they are in danger species and therefore protected. I will see if I can find the photos

    Very cool Jerry.

    Yesterday, I spent a good part of the day working the backyard, Porter hung out in the back with me, it's so cool to have a tortoise in the yard again. Been a long time coming.
