Today I thought I would share pictures of my Russian tortoise, Arya.

I took her outside and she spent time enjoying the sunshine and fresh air, both of which she won’t be able to experience for several months once the temperature drops too low where I live. 🙂

Zoya and I feel your pain. We did the same thing today. Winter is near, boo,


I wish i had pics but I don’t, But… I literally put the tortoise down for half a second, and he decides “Hmmm this carpet looks edible even though it’s really ugly and I just ate my weight in kale.” The joys of taking care of a tortoise.

We shells like to make decisions based on science. This means we have to examine every item, conduct a taste testing, and then decide if its a tasty treat. Sometimes we have to repeat our studies to make sure they are accurate. Its a very long detailed process, but that’s science. we can’t help it if we’re super smart scientists. Now, about your shoe laces… 


Only in New Orleans will a turtle walk with such determination towards a busy coffee place as if on his way to order himself some beignets. #storyofaday #neworleanscitypark #morningcall #beignet #turtle #followyournola #nolalife #blackandwhite #neworleanscitypark #neworleansphotographer #canon_photos #canon_official #neworleans #placestovisit #igersneworleans #urbanwildlife (at Morning Call : City Park : New Orleans)
