Izzy quite enjoys being a celebrity here on this blog, so it seems about time that I posted another instalment of her Tortoise Diaries.
She is still growing well, and won’t reach full size potentially until she is around 7 or 8 years old. I weighed and measured her a few days ago, and she is now 11.2cm long (that is the length of her belly), and weighs 375gms.
Since I first brought Izzy home, I have started to collect tortoise and turtle ornaments, some of which I have posted pictures of. The last one I brought was from Barcelona, and it is very colourful. When I got home I even put it inside Izzy’s house for Izzy to play with, but she wasn’t really interested. I did take a couple funny photos to show you though.
