I. Need. More. Pics. Of. Speedy! Please.
Also I no rabbit expert, but I've never heard of a Nertherland Dawf lop eared. Bouncy looks alot like Gus (my sister's rabbit) and he's just a normal Mini Lop.
Clearly I am getting very confused. I don't get the whole breeds of things that are mine!

Almost forgot. How about taking pictures of the pond? Please. I love goldfish, but don't have the space. & if you've koi, the lack of pics is inexcusable!
Okay....
I have 16 goldfish, 2 Israel koi and 4 white koi

They look beautiful! I've a special weakness for black cats. :blkcat:

I had to look up what most of them are, LOL. Where is Speedy hibernating? Is Kasana done growing at 5"? He's cute as a button!
Speedy will be hibernating in the garage. We don't really go in there much and it doesn't get too cold, so is ideal. I'm a little nervous because I have never had to hibernate a tortoise before. Does anyone have any tips?

Kasana is fully grown now! I will post pics later when I do the new setup.


I LOVE SPEEDY SO MUCH AND I LOVE EVERYONE
Thank you! I didn't realise Speedy would be such a massive hit!

I don't get to see enough tortoises, Zoos and reptile parks are the only places to see them in Aus.

Sane. You are so much more lucky than me, so don't dis your wildlife!!
I wasn't dissing anything. What I meant was you can't own a tortoise in Australia.

Oh. Why not? Australia is like the perfect environment for desert tortoises to be kept outdoors!
Something about there being no native tortoises. There are very strict laws for keeping reptiles here. I will search some things and get back to you.
@Shezbug might know something.

I have no idea I’m sorry. The only tortoise I’ve seen here in Aus are at the zoo. Plenty of people keep turtles but that’s as much as I know.

Kasana's new tank is setup! Pictures soon!

He is exploring it currently. The UV light doesn't work now, so we need to get a new one, and a new heater after lunch. I'm also going to get a turtle island and maybe some more plants

Finally adult turtle pics!!!!

It looks smaller in the picture, but the tank is more than 3ft long.

You can really see how massively over-filtered the tank is too!!!!

He loves his new setup. If you compare the Speedy picture with the Kasana one above, they look like they are doing the same pose lol

Have you ever tried getting a good picture of a 1.5 inch cichlid!?

There are three, but one is smart and in hiding! They seem to have all found a safe place that the turtle can't reach in an emergency. When they are fully grown, they will be too big for him anyway I should think.

They do have an advantage. Unlike Kasana, they can swim. And do it fast too!!
Thanks!

He has some tankmates now (which is more likely to be very expensive live food lol)
