Day 8 Did you know!!!!

Wonder how many people know that tortoises have their own unique fingerprints... actually I should say shell print!
I only learned this last year and whilst I knew their markings were different I didn't realise the significance!

These are not the best shots, but it does illustrate what I mean.

They do not really like being on their backs and I didn't want to cause them too much stress. So for now these are their passport photos!
