This project is motivated by creating a better option for feeding an African Spurred Tortoise named Flower. After she was neglected and abused by her previous owners her shell collapsed causing her to lose mobility in her neck. Unfortunately, this has caused her to be put on a back brace. All of this has led to Flower not being able to feed herself via grazing. The proposed solution is to create an automatic or semi automatic feeder that will allow Flower to eat comfortably with her disability and alleviating handlers from the arduous process.
