Ajax, the African Sulcata tortoise finally moved up to the Clayton house.
Ajax enjoying some of Gooey’s hay
He dug right in to Gooey’s hay and then started exploring.
About 30 minutes after being turned loose Ajax had made it to the far side of the property.
It is amazing how fast these tortoises grow, Ajax is somewhere around 5 years old and is over 50 lbs. already! In the 2 years he had been at our other house he has totally excavated the entire back yard to an average depth of 18″ and dug one tunnel that extends at least 15′.
Originally Gooey fell in love with her igloo
dog goat house, but lately she has decided she likes breakfast (and all other meals) in bed. Rather than go the bother of taking hay into her house she just relocated to sleeping in the feed bin.
I have been wanting bees but not like this! There is a hive inside the blockwall of the Clayton house and apparently they decided to swarm. Their first stop was the oleanders over the fence at The Fruity Chicken. My sweety, Karen, was a bit freaked out that we were all going to be assassinated by “killer” bees. That wasn’t to be though, by monday morning they had moved on for parts unknown.
