ZuZu’s day out

This is Baby ZuZu. He is really sweet and very inquisitive. He is surprisingly fast for a tortoise.  He has cute little elephant-like back legs and the tiniest cutest tail.    We are thinking of renaming him to Henry or Wally. 

nice one

He had his first vet appointment yesterday.  He had to get an x-ray of his leg.  It was broken before we got him and is healing.  He does not have an infection but might have a limp for life.  The injury is appoximately 6 weeks old.    We found out he is 3-4 years old.  The vet said if he had to guess he would say he is a boy but it is too early to tell.  We won’t know for another 4 years!  We found out we are doing everything right.  We are going to be making a larger pen and larger burrows next weekend.  We got the ok for him to hibernate.  I’ll show pics of the new pen when it is completed.
