Rosie, Ginger and Cecil Are Here!!!!

Ginger is finding a cozy spot to rest with a full belly
Rosie is headed toward to coleus

They ate like they were starving
Rosie and Cecil


Ginger on her tippy toes

Cecil is still eating after Rosie and Ginger were done
Bath time, Rosie couldn't get out fast enough. She must have known her food was right next to her.
Rosie, Cecil and Ginger arrived safely around 10:00am. All three ate a lot and for about 40 minutes. Cecil was eating for about 10 minutes after the girls were done. Rosie was the first one done with her breakfast and after looking around a bit she found her spot under a coleus plant. Gabby shared with me that is where Rosie slept at her home as well. Rosie was very intrested in exploring her habitat and Ginger seemed a little moe timid. Cecil ate and then quickly went to sleep not even moving from the place I sat him in his habitat. We are so excited to add these tortoises to our family and I'm sure this will be a learning process for all of us. I will keep you posted on their progress and ours in learning to care for them. Im sure we will have a lot of adventures to share!
