Roo, the Pet of the Day
Name: Roo
Age: 2.5 months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Hermann's tortoise
Home: Budapest, Hungary
   I 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!
