Let Sleeping Tortoises Lie

Could it be the clocks changing that is causing my tiredness?  I really don't know, but I think what ever it is, my  little ones are feeling it too!  They are sparked out under their heat lamp after a large meal and I feel rather jealous.  The littlest three were bred by me.  The slightly bumpy larger one is Phlox.  Apparently she is nine years old, but growing extremely slowly! If I tell you the largest of the other three is only a year old, you can understand what I mean.  I actually bought her from another breeder as I was concerned about her health.  I know they say you shouldn't do such daft things, but I am glad I did as she was very under weight for her size and dehydrated.  I have had her for two years now and she is much healthier and her new growth is smooth and steady.
Right I am going to give in to the call of sleep.  Goodnight one and all!
