International Turtle and Tortoise Week 2019, Day 2
(Part 1 here)

First up in the endangered turtle species we are highlighting for ITTW this year:  the green sea turtle!  Green sea turtles are the world’s largest species of hard-shelled sea turtle, with some adults weighing over 400 pounds!  They get their name from the green color of the fat under their shells.  In some places, the Pacific green turtle, which has a darker and more vaulted shell, is also called the black sea turtle.  Baby green sea turtles are omnivores, but adult green sea turtles, unlike most other sea turtles, eat primarily plants like seaweed and seagrass.  Adults actually help seagrass grow:  By eating the tips, green sea turtles keep the seagrass healthy!

How do you tell a green sea turtle apart from other sea turtles?  If you can get close enough, green sea turtles have only one pair of scales in front of their eyes.  All other sea turtles have two pairs!

Mom made me apologize to the Easter Bunny for nomming his fluffy tail yesterday.  The Easter Bunny was so pleased he magicked a second piece of radicchio for me!

But wait…what if there’s a secret third Easter treat???

Happy Easter!  Did the Easter Bunny bring you radicchio, too?  If he did, can I have it?

Fourth of July Party 2018, Part 2
(Part 1 here)

Bucky loved his mini me!  In fact, Bucky loved his mini me a little too much:

Be nice, Bucky!  No ripping off mini Bucky’s head!!

After Bucky’s overenthusiastic welcome, friend gckaf gave mini Bucky to me for the rest of the party.  I did an excellent job guarding mini Bucky by jumping off the edge not once, but twice!  For some reason, that made Mom upset, so I stopped jumping and discovered that mini Bucky makes an excellent cave for a tiny tortoise like me!
