Happy birthday to beautiful Mango, the sweetest tortie princess we know!! Mango is one tough princess, too—just look at how she keeps an eye on her big little brother Waffles!  🎉 🎂 🐢 🎉

To tell Mango just how special she is, we found a special card for her all in her favorite color, and I signed it with a kiss! 🐢 💝 🐢

Today we went to the Melbourne Zoo to visit the newly renovated World of Frogs! We met the Crucifix Frog, one of our favourite round frogs, and several endangered species of frogs, like the Growling Grass Frog.

We met some tortoise friends too, a Western Hermann’s Tortoise and a Star Tortoise, who said hello to Waffles at wafflesworld and we also met some lizard friends, a Frilled Neck Lizard and a Philippine Sail-Finned Water Dragon who say hello to Poncho at yeahponcho!

We looked and looked at looked in the enclosure of our most favourite frog, the Corroboree Frog, but they were hiding very well today.
The Corroboree Frog is one of Australia’s Critically Endangered frog species and they are new to the Melbourne Zoo, who are helping to breed them in captivity.

Stay tuned, we’ll update with more information on the Corroboree Frog soon! - And also the very first Stickyfrogs Giveaway!!!

Last month, we got an early Christmas package from friend (Iri)epsi!

(Iri)epsi always sends the prettiest packages! This one was covered in sparkly paper, and filled with delicious noms (that Mommy refuses to let me try, sheesh!) and a pretty turtle trinket box (that I am too big to fit inside now!). There was even more shiny paper lining the inside of the box! Can this box be my new hidey hut, Mommy?

Adventures with gckaf!

I may have failed to choose one of friend gckaf’s nom-colored hats, but I did get to try on both of them! Friend gckaf really has a knack for making things that are the perfect size for me: First my fabulous turtle blanket, and now these Mario and Luigi hats!

(Although the matching moustaches were rather big for me. Did you know Mario and Luigi have different moustaches?)

My First Valentine!, Part 2
(Part 1 here)

Waffles and Mango got me the most perfect valentine ever!! Not only does it say I am adorable, but also it is squishy, soft, and the color of noms! It is the comfiest, most delicious-looking valentine! It even tastes better than real conversation hearts. I was so excited that I couldn’t stop trying to nom it!

Thank you so much, Waffles and Mango! We love you! Happy Valentine’s Day!

Adventures with gckaf!

On our latest visit with friend gckaf, I got a surprise present: A reversible, hand-knit turtle blanket made by gckaf herself! Green turtle on one side, red turtle on the other!

I love my new blanket! It is wonderfully thick and warm (and festive!), just in time for the cold we have been getting. Plus, it is the perfect size for me: big enough for me to stay warm underneath or for me to hang out on top, and small enough that it doesn’t swallow me. In fact, the turtles on the blanket are exactly the same size as me! It is the perfect blanket for me! Thank you, gckaf!!

Adventures with gckaf!

Mommy kept squealing over how cute the rainbow shark and koi made by himagurumi were, so I shoved them off the couch to get her attention back.

I am totally not spoiled.

(Part 1 here)

Is this order in the tortle tower less precarious than the first one? And does this mean phone charm turtle likes me better now?
