Happy halloween everyone
Freddy and his bestie Libby got all dressed and ready for some some spooky fun.

Wowza! That’s an incredible costume/ Fort, Freddy! You can surviel all passers by and report to headquarters. Having a bestie that is also a guard tiger is fortuitous. The #turtpocalypse commends your ingenuity!! (and hopes you and Libby got ALLLL the candy 😀 )

my favorite screencap from the video of torts eating pumpkin

look how happy that tort is omfg  <3

Hope you are all basking in this sorta ‘post Halloween’ glory or continuing to celebrate (if you’re going all weekend long.) 

A friendly remember that, just like candy in humans, too much pumpkin can results in tortie tummy aches and… uh …some loose stool to put it mildly. ( but darn it tastes so good) 😀

U.F.O. Unidentified Frankie Object! One of our all time favorites and apparently the pet supermarket’s contest favorite too! Congrats on First Place Frankie!!!!

TRICK OR TREAT!!!

Human said if I wore this costume and walked around I would get treats! The tree had no dandelions and that statue just looked at me funny. I think this is the trick part of trick or treat.  I better get to nom that pumpkin. 

Happy Shell-o-ween from Tort-time!

Halloween is tomorrow so mom gave us the task of cleaning out the pumpkin. She cut off the top to reveal the sweet insides and we got straight to work. Once there was nothing but seeds left, I perched on top of the kill, victorious.

This Chaco Tortoise (Chelonoidis chilensis) is ready for its close up! In 2008 the Turtle Conservancy traveled to Argentina and Uruguay to document the ecology, status, and distribution of this vulnerable species. You can see the full film at: http://www.turtleconservancy.org/videos/

Guardian Animal Spirit Guide: TORTOISE/TURTLE

daughter-of-hecate-333:

When the pace of life becomes too hectic the turtle shows us how to slow down and go with the flow.

TURTLE MEDICINE

If turtle has crawled into your subconscious, it may carry the message to remain mobile and flexible in your spiritual walk and not to acquire more possessions that you need. The burden of possessions can slow our spiritual journey.

The turtle teaches us to accept the world we live in and to adapt to changes when needed.

If turtle comes with a message for you, it may be interpreted to mean that you should listen closely to your physical and spiritual senses, and vibrations and move slowly and cautiously to adapt.

When the turtle negotiates uneven terrain and its weight causes it to flip over onto its rounded shell, it uses its strong neck to right itself. This ability when communicated by messages from the turtle may be a sign to use the tools at your disposal to use your inner senses and knowledge to correct the problem when your life becomes upside down.

The turtle animal spirit guide teaches us about walking our path in peace and sticking to it with determination and serenity. Slow moving on earth, yet also incredibly fast and agile in water, those who have the turtle as animal spirit guide may be encouraged to take a break in their busy lives and look around or within themselves for more grounded, long lasting solutions. Traditionally, the turtle is symbolic of the way of peace, whether its inviting us to cultivate peace of mind or a peaceful relationship with our environment.
