Off to the vets me & Cola went, to see if she was gravid due to her very naughty behaviour. The journey is approx 1 hour each way so feeling very bad cos I know she hates the vet.. all the way there she was scratching to get out and I was being very sweet and reassuring her we were nearly there all sympathetic cos she probably is uncomfortable with all those eggs probably having been there a while now! even turned onto radio 2 for some soothing music for her to listen to.. he did the xray... Empty as an alcoholics bottle!!! So she has just been a spoilt madam and has had me running a merry dance for weeks.. So £65 for the xray.. so i told him to trim her beak for me to make the journey worthwhile! She was restless and trying to get out all the way home and we travelled home in silence! I am relieved I have no more eggs as I really don't want anymore hatchlings and just hope she calms down a bit now... he he.. good job I love her sooooo much x

Oh Jeanette you do make me laugh!! So Cola is in for a mini reality check is she. And silence all the way home.... I once did that when I picked up my 14year old middle son from a friends only to discover he had bleached his ginger hair!!!!' took me a few days to get over it... And to be honest it really suited him even if he looked like a Swedish porn star!!! But I digress... So guess Cola wont be going on anymore unsupervised holidays in the near future x x

LOL!!! She is sooooooo naughty! :lol:

The beak trim did sound a little like 'get your own back'... :D

So alls well that ends well, even if your pocket is a little lighter!!!

The vet did say that she was one hell of a healthy tortoise, which was nice..I am very relieved that she has no eggs at the moment but you never know she may lay again like last year November & December!! Hope she doesn't though, I hate having to find good homes for the babies and worry myself silly that they will be loved etc!! soppy cow I am.. x
