A Tortoise

The last time I saw this tortoise it was so small, and now it is so big! Uncle Roland took it from its hiding place, so that I can get a chance to see it.

Uncle tried to get it to show its face, by giving it some water, but I guess it was too shy.

It did not come out at all.

I tried to tickle it a bit to see if it would show me its face and legs.

But it stayed neatly tucked inside its shell.

Awww…. hopefully next time it will show its face.

Until next time tortoise!

This reminded me of the time I saw the Green Turtle Laying Eggs. Did you know that the major key difference between a turtle and a tortoise is that a tortoise spends most of their time on land but turtles are adapted for life spent in water?

Check out this video which illustrates the difference between turtles and tortoises.
