Back in Kona- 12 hours in to a 14 hour day. Moving the tortoises and all the other critters from the plane, to the truck and then back to the Ranch, where they have to be placed in their quarantine enclosures. Tortoises and turtle have to be quarantined for 2 months because their metabolism is so slow.
