tortoise is quite eccentric! She loves to eat almost everything,
including a piece of a popsicle that accidently fell into her cage one
day. When I first got her a couple years ago, I would take her out of her
tank quite often so she could get used to her new home. She would go
around trying to eat everything, including blankets, her reflection,
stuffed animals, and even a pair of earrings! Luckily, she never actually
managed to swallow my earrings because I pulled them out of her mouth as
fast as I could. Let me tell you, if you don't watch her... she'll get
into some kind of trouble.
I also have a red-eared slider turtle named Tanner that's still a baby,
which I got a few months ago, and when I put them together, Dinosaur tends
to sit on poor little baby Tanner. She didn't try to eat him, which is
good, but I find it quite amusing when she sits on him. Dinosaur enjoys
being squished on her head (even though my friends think I'm damaging her
brain). Whenever I play the violin for her, she raises her head up and
stares at me. Which reminds me, I love her eyes! They're a pretty shade of
golden-honey. I love my own Dinosaur!
