It was Harry's 47th birthday today, so as a treat, I transplanted a large poached-egg plant into his enclosure. (They're a 'moderation' food, so he can only have one occasionally).




Just over an hour later, it looked like this:




I think he enjoyed his birthday treat!

Hi Graham,

Looks like Harry enjoyed that, they don't last long do they. :)

:rofl:Little piggy! Happy Birthday Harry. :)


Norman and Hazel did a similar thing last year with Pansy's and Violas in their enclosure. The idea was that they would have sufficient food to last over a long weekend..... when I got back it looked like a horde of locusts had swarmed over! So much for aiming for a slow growth! :blink2:
