Augustus has Woken Up!

Posted March 27, 2015

Augustus went down for his winter nap back on October 19, 2014.  I've been waiting for him to wake up as I have heard many tortoises in this area have woken up by now.  We moved his cabinet to a sunnier location yesterday and he opened his eyes and shifted positions, but today was the big wake up day.

It's good to see him up and out and right away he went after the weeds around the firepit.  He's such a neat animal.  I think my big cat, Brutus, missed him wandering around all winter.  Maybe Brutus will stay out of trouble/harm's way now that his buddy is wandering the yard again.
