After much thought and consideration, I am rehoming our beloved Russian Box tortoise Chester. He has been with our family for about 4 years, roaming freely underfoot in my craft space. He is quite a character, very curious and social.
This hasn't been an easy decision because he has been such a wonderful, and unique pet.
You see, reptiles can carry Salmonella, something I just can't risk with having our sweet
I have found a home for him at an All Animal park specializing in reptiles about an hour away. He will roam around with others of his kind in a natural habitat and get attention from guests that visit. I feel confident that I've made the right choice for his placement with folks that truly know how to provide for his needs.
Thanks everyone for all your comments about him over the years. He will be missed... and hey, you never know, he might find a Russian babe at the new crib!
