There is one pet that remains a permanent fixture to the premise. He's a 60 pound African tortoise, named Scooter. He occupies an enclosure on the North side yard. He does not require any care. However, he greatly appreciates treats. He is a great composter, and eats mostly fruits and some vegetables. His favorites are apple & pear cores (no seeds), melon rinds, strawberry tops, broccoli stems, fruit skins, and any parts of lettuce. He dose not like any bitter, tart, or spicy fruits or vegetables like kale, collard greens, mustard greens, herbs, radish tops, onions, garlic, or citrus peels. Please do not feed him any seeds or pits. Before you throw out your salad clippings and fruit skins, give scooter a chance to see if he wants them. For your safety, please do not hand feed Scooter, or get to close. He is 60 lbs. and can not see well. If he steps on your foot it will hurt!
