Mango's Musings

“I dont know about you mango, but Im getting annoyed at how many people keep reminding you about your pyramiding, especially because of how much work your mom is putting into your health, I guess they just care but they should check out your blog!”

Everyone should be my friend and see my story! I don’t think anyone would poo poo me or mom if they saw how happy we are :}

oh, Mango, I know they all mean well but so many people mentioning your bumpy shell! I'm sure hearing it so much makes you feel a little bad (and may even make your mum feel accused of not taking care of you! I almost feel defensive on her behalf, though it's silly of me). You're a beautiful tort with all your lumps and I hope those well meaning pyramiding-mentioners don't get you down! Maybe you should have an FAQ on your ask page?

That’s a good idea! I don’t mind when people ask but it’s the rude ones who just met me that bother me. Mom knows she is doing good and so do I and we are thankful for all our friends who stick up for us. Big tortie kisses!

Every now and then we get comments about my pyramids. People think mom doesn’t know how to take care of me. I asked mom to find the picture of me from my previous people’s house and what I look like now. I think I look much better now! You can see a line where the bumps stopped growing and the new smooth growth begins. My shell is now hard, brighter, I have so many new spots and my skin is no longer dry and flaky. I think mom has done a great job making me healthy!

Your tortoise is pyramiding pretty badly. You may need to check to make sure his getting enough moisture and a proper diet.

Hello friend! I am a rescue tort, that’s why I have bad pyramiding. It happened during the two years I spent with my previous people. Since living with mom though, all my new growth is coming in healthy and smooth but unfortunately I will always have my bumps.

Happy Sunday friends! I hope you are having a beautiful, sunny day too

I haven’t done a silly face in a bit. This one is because I got some dandie stuck in my beak. How embarrassing.

Mom fixed the corners of our home since the tape was tearing. She got us strong minion tape instead. They make me dream about bananas.

Happiness is a fresh hibiscus just for me!

Today was super hot and felt like 38° out! That’s over 100° for my American friends. Mom didn’t let us out for most of the day so we waited until dinner time to go outside. She gave us free reign of the garden and we checked out and sampled everything. It was worth the wait.

This is me being insighful and contemplating big tortie issues and dreams. Nah, I’m just kidding. I’m really just waiting for food.
