Adopted Tortoise: Molly
Tortoise found Almaden expressway, near Coleman, July 2007
Molly was adopted from an obviously loving family up in San Rafael. Molly is a russian tortoise with great energy and curiosity. Above, Molly (right) dines alfresco with the other Tortoise at Hillside Haflingers, Al. This was their first meeting. It went very well, despite Molly's shyness. Molly is also a Russian Tortoise.

The two tortises will share the same pen in the barn, a spacious 4x6 feet with multiple shelters, heat sources and lamps. Below they dine on fresh tomatoes and cucumber grown by our friends, The Ellard Family, and organic lettuce.

Rescued Tortoise: Almaden

Tortoise found Almaden expressway, near Coleman, July 2007
This is the tortoise our son rescued from Almaden Expressway, near lake Almaden in early July. He put an ad in on Craigslist on the Lost & Found, but what are the odds? He'll have to stay at the farm as turtles/tortoises carry bacteria that aren't good for a young classroom environment.

Tortoise found Almaden expressway, near Coleman, July 2007
This is the tortoise our son found on Almaden Expressway, near Lake Almaden, so we named him "Almaden". He's about 6" from vent to snout, about one kilogram.

The best we can determine Al is a Russian Tortoise.
