Introducing Rex

That's T.Rex to be exact.
{the T stands for Tiny}


He's new to these parts, and we've been anticipating his arrival.


While we let him walk around on the grass for a while, we decided that the backyard was much too big for a tiny guy like him, so we ended up making him a nice little habitat in our atrium. That way we can enjoy watching him a bit more often too. {Pictures of that once we put a few more finishing touches on.}


He's a box turtle and is three years old.


We'll call him Rex.


He's new to the neighborhood.
He's super cute.
And he's ours.
Yay! :o)

PS: Thanks, Dana!!! He seems happy here and we love him!

I love the profile pic of him with his neck stretched out. SOOO cute.

Well isn't he just gorgeous! The perfect pet for you. Reminds me of when I was a child and my Nana always had a pet tortoise.

How cute that you have an actual turtle now and a bit surprising that you never had one before.

Made me smile as I thought he was much bigger from the picture yesterday - shows what I know about turtles :0)

A Box Turtle - what a lovely name! But I think "Rex" suits him even better. He is a really beautiful turtle. Love how interested and busy he looks in the photos.
Welcome little Rex!
I trust he will be allowed a Guest Blog Spot from time to time?

Well hello there little Rex, it's a real pleasure to meet you. I know you are going to love living with your new parents and you are going to be the best looked after Turtle in Arizona. Looking forward to hearing more about you very soon, or as Lizzie suggests, maybe a guest blog spot ....

Cute! Love that first photo! The only pet we ever had growing up was a tiny turtle. I have no photos, but one good story about him which I should probably write down somewhere!

Alison said...

Looking forward to hearing and seeing more of Rex!

Perfect!

Welcome Rex, you are going to have a great time with D&D!

Great photos by the way.

Karen said...

I think Rex is a lucky little turtle as he is going to be so spoilt!

He is so cute. Put a leash on him and take him for a slow stroll.
