We are (almost 100% completely and totally) THRILLED to introduce to you…
Atlas Tuk-Tuk Taviano!!
“He” is a four-month-old African Sulcata tortoise (you can read more about them here), and we put “he” in quotes because you can’t exactly tell what sex these tortoises are until around age 5. So, we’re going with “he” since Gabe is so outnumbered around these parts, and we’ll let you know in 5 years if we were wrong.
Atlas has his own tumblr blog, Twitter, and Facebook accounts (overkill? quite probably. talk to Mr. T about that.) and we’ll be filming his adventures as he grows (Where in the World is Atlas Taviano?).
We’ll tell you more about his adoption in the days to come.
We love you already, Atlas!
