So this Booma, who I liked to think of as my little mini-beast
friend. Booma & Ranga were my two pet leaf insects who sadly passed away last. year. They made great low maintenance pets! A cluster of gum leaves, spray their enclosure with some water mist every couple of days and they were happy campers. They liked going out to play now and then, in some of the potted plants around the yard. Ranga, the female, used to like play acting the scene from Titanic and hanging from my fingers, arms into the wind. She was Rose, and I was, ahmmm, the Titanic. Bonus thing is they were great for terrifying some of the lady neighbours too 😉 I miss my cute little mini-beasty friends

Fun facts about leaf insects:
- they walk in a rocking motion, and when they are in amongst the leaves, they sway to imitate the wind blowing on real leaves.
- If no males are around, the female is able to reproduce by herself.

If you are wondering about their names, think about them in the context of stick insects

Happy humpday all 😀

Hi everyone meet Hugo. Hugo this is everyone. Despite looking like the alien out of ET (Showing my age there) Hugo is a 70 year old Galapagos giant turtle who lives at the Australian Reptile Park on the Central,Coast. He is the longest term resident of the park. Hugo will live to 150 years old, he is fully grown now and weights 180kg!
Another animal I love. And who doesn’t like turtles! 🐢

I did go to the library to ask for a book to read about them. The librarian asked me “hardback?” I said yes , with a little head. Don’t know why she got annoyed ‍ 😉

Edit: There is quite a love story attached to Hugo involving younger ladies, overseas romance and long-awaited meetings. Here is a snippet form the park page :)

Coming all the way from Zoo Rostock Germany is Estrella the Galapagos tortoise, a beautiful 21-year-old female who Hugo met after the Australian Reptile Park put him on dating app Tinder back in 2019. The introduction exceeded all expectations with the pair not leaving each other’s side since the moment they met. Estrella spent her three months in quarantine, Hugo and Estrella were able to see each other via a series of FaceTime dates set up by their keepers.

I reckon it's such a sweet love story, but I believe they are taking things slowly ....
