Hermann’s Tortoise named QB

A tortoise is what my kids always asks for when we take a trip to the local pet stores-

Last week, we all took the kids to one of the bigger pet store in the east bay- there were plenty to look at and marveled at the size of full grown reptiles that were displayed. To say the least, my kids were paneled at the tortoise’s section. So my eldest daughter wanted a tortoise. She checked out their selections, from the russian tortoises to the sulcatas, to the greeks and finally chose hermann’s tortoise. She wanted something that doesn’t get too big- so we’re settled with the baby hermann’s tortoise-

My daughter was so eager to take his home and enjoy her tortoise. Her younger siblings encouraged her to name her lifetime pet. So my daughter decided on the name ‘QB’…

QB is only a baby, a good one month old hatchling. He is the biggest of his clutch and enjoys to eat, so his survival rate is higher than the rest. We went home with a care sheet and instructions. We had a long day that day, so wherever we went QB came with us-

Just in thst brief moment, people were attracted to him…how cute he is and a delight to see- as you can see, his photos speaks for itself.

He loves to eat and bask…soon enough he will enjoy the sunlight. For now, until he’s a few months older, we cannot play or hold QB…he must be fed regularly and soaked in water for thirty minutes daily. It is to make sure he is hydrated enough to avoid getting sick.

Just as you can see, QB is enjoying his time in his new environment-
