Upon discovering our resident gopher tortoise last year, we decided to name it in honor of Fred Beltram…so we have been calling him Fred!
Just in the past week, though, Don discovered a new baby tortoise hole next to Fred’s! Perhaps our Fred is a Fredericka!
No baby sightings yet, but there is evidence of baby nibbles.
Just looked it up…the name Fredericka means “peaceful ruler”!
How felicitous is that?!
