||2.5 months old|
was in a Terraristic Exibithion in Budapest, Syma Csarnok. I hoped that I
would find a Hermann's Tortoise (Testudo hermanni), because it was always my
childhood desire. I was surprised because the tortoise section was very small
... a lot of other reptiles were there but very few tortoises, I don't know
why. Finally I found Roo! He is unique. Why? Because he is wearing my lucky
number on his shell, and he born on my birthday! (Don't worry, the paint
doesn't hurt him, it is not toxic, the people did that to tell them apart, I am guessing).
Roo is a very curious tortoise, who want to explore his little world. He
loves sleeping when the sun goes down, and love dandelions. Sometimes he eats
cucumbers, carrot, and apple. I think when he was with his breeder, he was
giving him natural plants, because when I first gave him dandelion, he was
crazy when saw it!
When I introduced him to my guinea pig, he is sniffing him and was nibbling
Roo's shell a little bit. But nobody got hurt, don't worry! Roo is not a
skittish tortoise, he is not afraid of me at all, even though he is just a
baby. So now we living here with happiness, my guinea pig, me and Roo: The Three Musketeers!
