The Turtles' Hobbies

If you are a regular reader, you know we have some animals crawling around. Really, really slow animals.

Just because they are slow, doesn’t mean they’re cowards. One day, there were three dogs chained up on our compound. This turtle walked just out of reach of all three of them while they howled and strained against their chains.

And then there is the baby turtle, who is very well 10 years old. (The elder, big tortoises have been giving demonstrations on how baby turtles come into the world. Um. “Let’s go inside girls")

It’s just the right size to haul around.

As far as we can tell, his favorite activity is definitely swinging. 

This turtle can’t wait to be big enough that kids can’t pick it up.
