Being as old as it is any formaldehyde would have pretty much dissipated by now.
Yeah, my mom was born in 71, so it was probably made in the mid 70s.
Let me tell you, that thing was a testament to my grand-daddy's construction! I was exhausted by the end
If your mom was born in "71" (1971 i'm going to assume )you must be a young-un then
I'm going to guess you age
(no offence intended if i get it wrong I just want to guess )
I'm going to say that since your mom is 5 years younger than me and I have an 18 year old daughter that you would be....15
17, but close! Momma was a bit wild in her early adulthood, and it got her into trouble. But she's stuck with me now!! lol
Dad just had my little half-sister, so I'm finally not an only child!
holy cow, that made me feel old. I was born in 1975...
My mom was born in '71 too, but i'm 19 so i guess my mom got a bit wilder than yours . Lovely turtles, i wish you all the best with them.
Just one tort, but thanks for the well wishes
I wouldn't put it past your tort to try at least once to eat the fake plants - just keep an eye on him when you introduce them.
oops, mistook the rock for another tortoise. Guess that's what i get for reading the forums after my bedtime
My cats seem to think that the tort is a rock with legs, lol. They're really afraid of him
My cat use to stalk my RES around the house when he got out, but never mustered the courage to come within three feet of him.
The birds and other animals are mostly not interested.
I got him his palm tree. He doesn't seem to care, lol.
Who can tell if a tort is smiling?
Yeah, that palm tree is probably more for you.
I'm still hoping to have it a bit less of an eye sore, lol
I know that feeling. I have spent countless time (and $) trying to make cages and/or aquariums look nice, only to have the animal decide they like it looking different.
When we had oscars they would rearrange the decorations, but they were BIG fishies
I have 2 of those, and gave up altogether on decorations. They move the gravel, they move the driftwood. The only thing they have not figured out how to move is the small boulder. I also have a ball that hates fake greenery, and will tear down any I put in her tank.
I think my turtle is the only one who doesn't seem to mind how I decorate (he has a nice little fake pond with fake lily-pads, and slate steps up to his basking platform!)
Why not paint the insides of it? You could get pretty creative and paint a landscape on the walls. That would make it look pretty, but not take up any of the tort's explorin space.
Heck, throw up some aquarium background paper.
