Scuttles was so annoyed with me today after I made her sit on top of her hutch so I could take photos of her! Then I took Squirtle down to the beach and he had lots of fun while I took photos and collected shells. I love these tiny shells (mollusc operculum) that are flattened by the tide. We got Little Boy back today, I was a bit shocked at the sight of the poor little guy - turns out his teeth weren't the problem, but rather he had two very large abscesses by each ear, and so had to have major surgery to remove them. His head had to be shaved and all, and he sure is a sorry sight! Good news is he'll be fine now, he'd have been in so much pain due to the abscesses all this time.
