If you had to pick the cutest animal ever what would you choose? I know, it’s hard, there are so many to choose from.
But personally I find turtles and tortoises so very adorable and irresistible, either they are newly hatched babies or else giant and incredibly old. To me their face resemble a serpent’s face and yet their eyes are super sweet and their protective shell super cute. They are hilarious to look at and they have got their own personality: the boys are usually all sport, games and challenges, it amazes me that they never seem to want to give up. Instead the girls are really very quite and enjoy sleeping a lot.
Once I saw a tortoise with two heads, poor thing: How much tenderness in seeing that they both wanted to have their lettuce, they were infact eating the double of what they truly needed. Two leaves of fresh, green salad was all it took to make it/them happy. How sweet!
Although turtles are silent they well know how to make themselves clear 🙂
By the way, if you happen to find one, don’t just take it home assuming it will be the perfect pet for your child: it might be the violent type, very dangerous. And in any case, they need to be looked after properly or they might die.
My latest artwork is a piece of colorful crazy mosaic art called Turtally mad about turtles. It’s a turtle undercover with two missions! You can read its story at the description of my work at this link https://lucia-waterson.pixels.com/featured/turtally-mad-about-turtles-lucia-waterson.html
Thanks a lot for reading!
