He just arrived! I took the day off from school today so that I could wait for him to come. Every time I thought I heard a deisel engine I got anxious and pretty much ran to the door. It was a tense morning, but about 20 minutes ago, the fed ex truck finally pulled up the drive way

He is perfect! He's so tiny, and in awesome condition. I put him in his enclosure, and I figured he wasn't going to eat anything on his first day, but I guess when I pulled the greens out of his tank, I dropped on, and I came back to find that it was already gone, and that the little tortoise had moved over to his pile of Timothy hay, and had begun gobbling on some of that too! I put the dish back in for him in case he was hungry and wanted some greens, and now I'm going to leave him alone for a bit. He is adorable.

He's a funny little guy too. When I took him out of his packaging and set him in the enclosure, he sprawled his legs out right away and looked around slowly, then started walking around a little. LLLreptile did a fantastic job packing him up too. He got here and he was surprisingly warm. By the way, I think I see signs that he is a male (he holds his tail up and to the side like a male would). It's probably really too early to tell for sure though.
