    I got a cb golden greek at the Tucson reptile expo yesterday. It's just the cutest little thing :). I'm hoping it's a boy cuz I'm going to name him Hercules, but I may have to change it at some point if he turns out to be a she. He's about 4 or 5 months old and weighs 34 grams. I got him to eat a few bites of greens yesterday before he retreated into his pile of hay where he still is now. I just put a fresh pile of food in there so hopefully he will come out to eat soon.

    I have come to the conclusion that I am not going to be able to find the charger for my camera so I'll have to get a new one before I can post any pics. :(

    Do y'all have the four inches rule there or is that just an illinois thing?

    I've heard of there being regulations on selling baby tortoises, but I guess there aren't any here. There was only one person there selling greeks, but there were tons of baby sulcatas that were just as small being sold.

    The 4 inch rule is a federal law. But it isn't enforced very well.
