Meet Bam. Bam is a type of tortoise popularly known as a Sulcata. I’ve been lucky enough to be Bam’s provider for 15 years now. When I first got him, he fit into the palm of my hand.

It doesn’t make sense that he’s not here anymore. It’s not right. It’s not fair. Your feelings are valid and your grief is important. It reflects the love you have for your brother, which is something not even death can take away. My heart and those of your community are with you extra during this time.
