Cactus seems to be the winner this summer! :-)

Yes, cactus does seem to be her favorite this summer! She even has picked it over watermelon. Simply amazing... seeing how watermelon is the "ice cream" for tortoises!

Her other diet this summer has been a mix of Kale, Collard Greens, and Mustard Greens, with a side of red seedless grapes! Not green grapes, and not purple grapes...they have to be red seedless grapes. lol!  Her greens are chopped up and mixed.

This giant bowl of chopped greens usually lasts her about a week.  With all this eating...Her weight seems to be a pretty steady 12 lbs. that's up about 2 lbs from last year.

The Ice Storm !!

As Georgey continues to slumber, the outside of her house is blanketed with 7 very thick blankets, and wadded up newspaper is laced around the entrance and bottom areas to her house. A temperature probe was placed near her slumbering body. As the temperatures were reaching 27 degrees outside her habitat, inside her house the temperature remained a steady 40 degrees. She never hit the freezing mark!

Hurry up Springtime! We miss you Georgey! :)
