Malti Explains Redfoot Tortoises: Begging

When I first brought Malti home, she was still so wild! At times she seemed nearly feral, looking at me suspiciously out of those tiny intense black eyes. And then she started to grow up.

Wednesday’s Precious Pearl Moments

When you are petite and precious and covered with soft downy feathers, you can forget all about privacy and personal space.

Figuring out what to feed a newly rescued box turtle is not a job for the faint of heart (or mind).

Malti Explains Redfoot Tortoises: Bathing

If you've been following along with our little flock's adventures for some time now, you probably remember that pivotal moment in May 2014 (four years ago now - wow!) when Malti first joined our family.

Tuesday Gratefuls: Pearl & Shannon Share

Feeling grateful is always possible, but that doesn't mean it is always easy. Looking for and finding reasons to feel grateful can be a discipline like any other.
