Being a tropical tortoise from South America, you know exactly how you like your climate.

WARM.

Warm is good. Warmer is better. Very very warm is best of all.

Since you don’t prefer to spend the cold weather days buried under a big pile of dusty hay like your smaller, clearly less discerning shelled brother, there is only one thing for it.

Blankets. Loads and loads of blankets.

Blankets above, blankets below, blankets all around – all to keep your cute shelled self toasty warm.

When your large shelled assistant gets your blanket arrangement just how you like it, it is always a nice touch to reward her with a fresh burst of “cuteness.”
