Update on Mario, Javier, and Freddy

It's been a few months since I've updated on our satellite tortoises: Mario, Javier, and Freddy. They have been doing pretty much the same thing as before, but in a way, that's interesting. Here are the latest movement paths (October 4 - January 26), you can compare to the old ones if you scroll down to the bottom of the page. (Mario is in yellow, Javier in pink, Freddy in blue; the black point is the introduction point, and the black lines are 40 meter elevation lines.)

They seem to be maintaining the same relative positions (with Freddy to the north, Mario to the east, and Javier to the southwest), but making these big looping movements. Pretty interesting. It's good to know they're doing okay.
