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.

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.

We may have missed out on cactus but friend Diane sent home a giant treat log with mom. I like the treat log whole, Torty ate hers like a donut (with roommate Geoff), and Mango ate hers like a cookie. I offered some to Blue but he went back to sleep.

Slow week? These gentle giants amble along at an astonishing 0.16 miles per hour. And yes, they eat cactus. 🌵 That strong jaw easily tears through tough food items. Check out our IG Live for more noms with our grandpa galaps.
