Today’s #TBT is an important life lesson for all the younger shells out there: The grass is always greener on the other side (but you can’t nom it so who cares!)
Listen up youngins I’ve got a story to tell you…
Once upon a time humom and I spent some time living with auntie @mymuffintopiswholegrainlofat and cousin chairman meow. He’s a fun cousin, we both like treats and heat lamps and naps. But there was a little problem. I was jealous. Every time we’d hang out he would tell me everyone loved his glorious fur, and roll on his belly to show me. I wanted to be glorious too but I had no fur! No fair! I had to get some!
So one day, when humom wasn’t looking, I snuck into the kitchen and collected all the tufts of fur cousin CM had left behind. I could be furry too! And I was! you can see it in the picture!
Unfortunately, the excitement of my newly acquired fur did not last long. No one said I was glorious, humom said I was silly! And being furry might get you compliments but it also gets you LOTS OF EXTRA LONG BATHS! WHAT? he didn’t tell me that!! ARGH! *hmph*. Being furry was no fun.
After my bath (trying to escape from humom before, during and after) and a little time thinking (sulking ) I realized that being furry might not be for me and my shell is pretty glorious too, even without fur. It was an important moment. I now know that chairman meow and I are both glorious in different ways and this means I can avoid getting an extra long bath AND we can combine our gloriousness to get the humans to do whatever we want 😀
This is Speedy, my grandma’s desert tortoise. She’s been with us for almost 30 years. Here she is eating her “treat” of lettuce. She normally just eats grass and other foliage around the backyard, but she loves getting the occasional lettuce leaf.
I love this little guy named Dump #BeenMyBestFriendFor10Years #Tortoise #Love

Get caught smuggling illegal wildlife in most countries in the world, and you can expect a slap on the wrist. A very gentle slap at that. “Somebody could take an AK-47 and just shoot up a pod of pilot whales,” one frustrated investigator recently complained. “That’s the same as a traffic offense.”…

Hey! I thought that was pretty darn graceful! Didn’t even fall back in once!
The little bird decided to join the tortoises… #aruba #tortoise #bird

I haven’t been out to the front of the house lately. Time to survey the neighbourhood. I tried to stay incognito but it wasn’t long before the paparazzi found me.
Its hard work being a shellebrity!
