There have been several enquiries about the health of the tortoises. New readers might, or might not, be interested to learn that I have four. Once there were five, but Number One Tortoise died a couple of years ago. For the benefit of any entomologists out there, the greenbottles were first on the scene, just like it says in the text books. But I digress. They are all well, thank you, and eating me out of house and home. They woke up from their winter sleep in early April and immediately started doing what comes naturally. Their favourite food is iceberg lettuce and they get through one per day, plus assorted vegetables. They do not, unfortunately, eat snails.
