Yes I do Sue...... What do you call a collection of tortoises?..... I just think someone said....' Look at all those tortoises creeping along'........but then to my mind it must have been a cold day!!! What would have been said on a really hot day watching young tortoises, climbing, running around...... Even doing what they do in the spring or whenever the opportunity arrives!!!! Heaven forbid!!!
Any ideas for a group of tortoises...... I know.....a group!!! Lol x x

You are already correct, Stella, the collective noun for a group of tortoises is, indeed, a Creep.

If it were up to me, I would have suggested a Trundling, a Conch (shell connection), or a Panzer (they remind me of little tanks).

I call it a creep too, because that is what it is, but I usually refer to mine as 'the mob' or my 'terrors' a term shared with my grandchildren. Now when it comes to crows, I like to refer to them as 'targets' lol

It's not with these damned crows either. They have taken up residence in all the unused chimneys around here and are a danger to my tortoises. I'm afraid I don't discourage the pigeons, in fact a have a dove cote they can use, but they are no danger and I quite like listening to their cooing :)

Ha ha ha!!! It's their constant pooing that is more annoying!!! Crows are horrid, great black things with beaks like crabs claws!!! X x x hugs x

LOL, I don't notice the poo, it must disappear into the gravel around the dove cote. I go to an elderly lady once a week though and constantly have to clean the path and the window sills. Her neighbours feed them and it attracts rats which I then have to remove too - yuk! Did you know that if you aim a catapult at crows, they know, so if you pretend to aim a catapult, they fly away - they still come back though lol
