Our baby tortoise. Hatched in our backyard in Sep 06. Junior measures on the shell approximately 2"x2". The male was given to us by someone who could no longer take care of him (they had him for 30 years). The female was a street side rescue given to us. We have had two hatches in the last 3 years. No survivors from the first hatch of 5 and we only found 3 from this batch. So far they are all alive at their various homes.

That is really cool. All we have in our backyard are toads and lizards!
