Galápagos tortoises are herbivores that eat prickly pear cactus (a favorite) and fruits, as well as flowers, leaves, and grasses. In fact, these tortoises can go without eating or drinking for up to a year, because they can store food and water so well. Tortoises don’t have teeth, so they use the bony outer edges of the mouth to bite off and mash food. Once in the mouth, food is quickly swallowed. They don’t have a good sense of smell, so they use their eyes to find food. Anything red really gets their attention!

Ravens can Talk!


This is Mischief the White-Necked Raven.  These ravens are found throughout eastern and southern Africa, and are common near human habitation.  

Like all members of the Corvidae family, ravens are extremely intelligent. They use tools to get food if necessary, and can even mimic human speech!

Cool facts about White-Necked Ravens:

- Their main diet is fruit, insects, and small reptiles, but if they find a small tortoise to eat, they will lift it up and drop it to the ground to break the shell.

- Ravens are some of the smartest of all animals.

- Since they are very social by nature, ravens are also some of the most playful of birds.

- Ravens display a strange behavior in the wild called “anting”.  They roll around on anthills, let the ants crawl all over them, and then they chew up the ants and rub them through their feathers.  Scientists are unsure why they do this.

Templeton’s leg is healing great but his allergies with his paws are still bothering him. So he has to wear a cone again for two weeks. Still has a smile on his face! He can now go back to his normal life minus the jumping :P We spent some time collecting flowers for the tortoise to eat at my parents house. He looks so cute!
