    Just back from nine days in a Welsh field.

    The perfect motorhome pet - spends most of the day either asleep or buried in a hedgerow, eats anything (stuff that would make a maggot retch) and when it's exercise time, we stand there, glass in hand, and watch her have a good, intensive 20 metre workout!


    P.S. note the teepees, circus and theatre tents. Yes, it was a Caravan Club site...

    I went to buy two tortoises. They were no bigger than the palm of my hand. I was put off by the amount of equipment that I was going to have to buy for them to live in and the amount of looking after that they would have needed.

    I remeber having tortoises when I was a kid and we fed them on lettuce and that was it. I was shocked at the change.

    Apparentley they are well sought after because they are forever being stolen which isnt surprising at the amount of money they cost, about £300.00 each:Eek!:

    £300 :Eeek: blimey, they're £145 down saarf ! like you said, they used to eat anything and ours used to hibernate in the compost heap ! not that you wld want to take a compost heap with u of course, a box of straw maybe,
    thieves nick anything these days , theres a spate of cat stealing going on at the moment and they just leave the cats miles away, i guess because it's a laugh to those with low morals :Angry:
