Remember this little guy?
Look how tiny!
We discussed their hearty appetite, right? Yeah. Feed an Indian star tortoise well, and 7 weeks later, you get this:
Look! I can see myself! I’m pretty!
Yes, they’ve doubled in size, with no sign of slowing down. Impressive, no?
Wait! Don’t EAT the quarter! You might have a problem, little friend. I didn’t want to be the one to tell you, but…

Ass’s! So cute!

Ok, that is the most embarrassing autocorrect EVER.
May 18, 2012 at 9:14 am
I can’t bring myself to change it. Because it’s the funniest thing I’ve seen all day!
May 18, 2012 at 11:23 am
I guess I should comment on blogs half-awake more often!
May 18, 2012 at 9:20 am
The cuteness! And, ha! I love the smell of Autocorrect in the morning.
May 19, 2012 at 4:48 am
My two favorite things.
May 18, 2012 at 9:23 am
ZOMG, “ass’s.” I’m dying. That’s a total autocorrect win in my book.
Tortoise eating a quarter! Nom nom nom. Look how big they’re getting! If you pick them up, do they try to nibble your fingers, too?
May 19, 2012 at 4:39 am
They don’t unless you’re wearing brightly colored fingernail polish. Then all bets are off because you look all fruity and delicious.

ha ha ha! We’re sure their butts are cute but we never get to see them! Do they have sharp teeth or would they gnaw you to death?
They don’t have any teeth at all actually.

I was all set to squee in the comments, but then I saw Emily’s comment and now I can not stop laughing. BAHAHAHAHA
May 19, 2012 at 4:49 am
I know. Tortoises shown up by autocorrect. I love it!
May 18, 2012 at 9:55 am
They simply continue to be cute, despite growing size. Love the auto correct!
They have such personalities, they’ll be cute forever!

HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! leave the post…so funny when you read it all together.
May 18, 2012 at 10:11 am
I am stupid on Fridays…what word was suppose to be there in place of the ..?
May 19, 2012 at 4:50 am
I suspect “Awwwww!”
May 18, 2012 at 1:18 pm
Love it! Both the picture and the autocorrect. Sometimes I can’t even blame autocorrect.
I know I can’t. I have no device that uses it, and I still do stuff like that!
May 18, 2012 at 2:47 pm
Geesh. Hide your good jewelry!!
May 18, 2012 at 2:52 pm
And the kids!
May 18, 2012 at 3:09 pm
Great pics, great slip. What did we laugh at before auto-correct?
May 19, 2012 at 4:51 am
May 18, 2012 at 6:00 pm
What did I miss? Where is the auto-correct. Where is ass? I feel like I got left out of a joke!
May 19, 2012 at 4:52 am
I think it was supposed to say “Awww!”
May 18, 2012 at 7:47 pm
And I thought puppies grew quickly…
May 19, 2012 at 4:53 am
These little critters grow right before your eyes!

Playing tug-of-war with a quarter, that is so adorable
I was hoping they’d give me change back.

The more I read your blog, the more I’m tempted to get a tortoise.
May 18, 2012 at 9:26 pm
Email me if you are serious. I can let you know what’s involved in their care. zooheather1atgeemaildotcom.

They are cuter than the Care Bears! I could just pinch their wittow cheekies. Do they have cheekies? The face kind, I mean.
May 19, 2012 at 4:54 am
They’re too little to pinch, but I passed on the sentiment. They were happy.
