On reading my newly acquired 'The Guide To Owning a Mediterranean Tortoise'
I learned that leaving a dish of egg shells around for Del-Boy is good for her as it will help her shell and bone growth.

Wanting to be a good mummy, yesterday after making myself an omelette i duly crushed the egg shells and put them in a bowl for Her Majesty to delight herself with.

I have also learned that she may actually be a the sex of a tortoise can only be determined when they reach the age of 4-6 years and Del-Boy is only 1.....
