Hilda asked to take the kids paddling kayaks first thing this morning. So that’s what we did. It was a Magic morning with my favorite people and turtles. No wind made for clean clear water that you could see to the bottom in deep water. We are lucky to live on Maui and have this as our back yard and play ground. These kids have no idea how good they got it. thank you @bluesmiths for always keeping my family covered and comfortable in our Kanaha tops in our Cancer fighter pink color. #blessedandthankful#forbesfamilyfun#turtles#honu#IndyandSully#tarzindy#sullybratelifeeveryday

*SWIPE TO SEE ALL*
Frigid days and nights are not that common here in southern coastal New Jersey, but we don’t have to stress when they do come. Various Testudo species are able to safely sleep within their coldframes where the temperature never allows for them to freeze. We’ve dealt with even colder nights than this on the rare occasion but the tortoises know what to do by digging deeper if need be. In contrast to this, when the temperature warms a bit, the animals know to dig upwards. It’s amazing how they can react during such a dormant state by subjecting themselves to “safe temperature zones” on either end of the spectrum. Testudo are a truly magnificent and underrated group of tortoises.
In these photos, temperature and humidity gauges show what is happening at the very surface inside the coldframes. A screenshot of the current temperature outside is shown so you can see the difference. Inner coldframe photos show a few T. marginata and T. hermanni hermanni still near the surface while others have gone deeper already. Lastly, some of the enclosures are shown that currently hold countless T. hermanni ssp, T. graeca ibera and T. marginata securely in brumation.

Another day in the life of a girl obsessed with @ohpollyswim ... (also swam with turtles after this so believe it or not my smile got even bigger 😄)
Did you know that styrofoam never ever biodegrades? Ever? The next time you buy a kebab or a portion of chips, refuse these containers and ask for your food to be wrapped in paper instead. Or better still, don’t buy from there again. Vote for the planet you want to live in by buying your food and products elsewhere. Make a change and refuse plastic #refuseplastic 📷: @calebdlucas
Ever wondered what a sleeping turtle looks like? It sort of looks creepy but I ❤️ it! The one sleeping is my male YBS(his name ks literally Turtle)the one on the right is my female(Lotus).
