I know, right? I believe Basil is an African Side-neck turtle (aka west african mud turtle?) 

I love them because they always look like they are smiling (or have a little mustache haha) Gorgeous shells!

FRIENDS! WE HAVE A NEW MISSION and that mission is LOOOOOVE!

We’ve received this wonderful submission and request from a tortoise loving humom who whats to surprise her special tortoise loving human on Valentine’s day! See below for her request and get posing! I’ll be reposting this again in a few days in case anyone misses it! 

Hello tortoise and turtle lovers!
I have a favor to ask from all of you who have torts and turtles as pets. Valentine’s day is coming up soon, and I want to make a special gift for my boyfriend, who adores turtles and tortoises as much as I do. I want to make him a photo album with photos of tortoises and turtles from all around the world, with our names next to them!
So, If you want to help me, I would like you to write SALE + VALE (our nicknames) on a piece of paper, your location and names of your torts too, and take a photo of your tortoises and turtles next to it!
I have added the photo of how it should look like.
Thank you very much in advance! <3
