The love between a tortoise and her noms is the truest form of love.

Mom is trying to finish all her WIPs before starting on any new projects.  First up:  This spring-themed pillowcase!  I am supervising to make sure all the flowers look appropriately delicious.  Now where are all the real flowers to reward me for my hard work?

Fun fact for fellow crafters: For some reason, Mom always thought the top stitches in cross stitch are supposed to alternate direction from row to row. We recently learned (too late for this pillowcase) that top stitches are actually supposed to all face the same direction. Oops…

(This is Mom’s second embroidered pillowcase.  The first one was a big Snoopy pillow that you can see over here!)

kosiaczkowe:

hello!

How are you, guys? I’m a little bit tired, because I started to work today. I left my turtle alone. She ate everything from her ‘island’ and she didn’t destroy anything. She was so polite. I love her, she was so happy when she saw me (I think XD). Tomorrow – another day in work. I totally don’t like that job ._. maybe I will get usted to.

Mom is always tsk-tsking at me for having dirt all over my face.  I can wash my face on my own just fine when I want to, Mom!

Here’s my new video on the mata mata turtle!

Check out this awesome video about the Mata Mata turtle! @drinksss did a fantastic job telling us all about its origin and care! Can’t wait for more Herp corner 😀 

Maybe one day we can team up for some tortle talk in the herp corner! 😀

So, I was going through your Show Me tag, and I found the post with the tortoise and the croc and just-why was the tortoise squeaking? I thought that tortoises couldn't make noise!

That’s actually a misconception! They don’t have vocal chords or anything but they can huff and squeak and wheeze. Wheezing’s a sign that something’s wrong, like they’re having respiratory problems for whatever reason- but the squeaking is a sign of effort. It’s kinda like weird, heavy breathing! They generally only make that noise when they’re deep in the throes of amorous endeavour. 

Y’know, like when they see a really, really sexy shoe.
