Today Henry, Jamarkus, Charley, Pinkie, Aerial, Geoffrey, Jamima, Munch, Gilbert, Spicy, Herman, Pierre, Melon, Sparky, Peatree, Little foot, and Dot all got their first bath!!!
Soaking these young tortoises is a great way to rehydrate them as well as to help them pass waste. If you look closely you will see they stick their WHOLE entire heads under water. I had to keep a close eye on all of them to make sure they weren’t under water for too long.
The babies also receive moisture from the fresh greens and grasses we offer them daily. (Pictured is Pinkie)
