A Valentines Day special report:  Are over sexualizing fashion? and how is it impacting our Chelonians? 

No, not children, Chelonians. 

Two Sulcata tortoises, part of designer Mathieu Mirano’s runway show, were truly inspired by the desert inspired sex appeal of the show they were a part of. 

While their job was to roam amongst the models, they preferred to perform a runway show of their own, one that generally requires IDs. 

According to Page Six:

An onlooker told us, “A large male began pursuing a smaller female tortoise around the models, who stood still posing in the sand. One model could barely hide her giggles as the determined male followed the female past her feet, and he then proceeded to climb aboard.”

Meanwhile, another beauty, wearing a colorful striped dress, maintained her cool as the copulating pair went at it against a mirrored wall behind her.

Designer Mathieu Mirano told Page Six, “I’m delighted my collection inspired such amorous behavior  – regardless of species. If they have kids, they should name one ‘Mathieu.‘”

I had to nap after brunch, of course, but later in the day I got to open some valentines!! I got a package from my boy shell @Jeffmusk and one from wafflesworld & mangomusings !! Our mail is super slow cause of that stupid snow so these packages must have been made of magic!

Jeffie sent me a card and ALL THE WARM! We really need that right now. I got candy hearts and GLOW IN THE DARK ROCKS! Humom says those are for her, but they smell like noms to me so I tried when she wasn’t looking.

The package from Waffles and Mango said Par Avion! That means it went on a plane to get here. Cool! Inside was the best magnet of Waffles & Mango! They both look super handsome and I think Mango is singing! It’s now hanging on the fridge with our #Turtpocalypse magnet! Also inside, was a snuggly valentine Heart!! I climbed it and snuggled it and wore it on my head. I love it!!

Thank you shell friends!! You are the bestest!
