I went to a Japanese Convention last Saturday and got a cup as souvenir. The cup was in this white box:
Well…you know how I love doing unusual things with my turtles and that hole reminded me so much of Bilbo’s front door. So, instead of throwing it away, I turned it into Papoe’s Room
First, I put a small handkerchief inside the box.
Then, I taught Papoe how to enter his new box-room with round door.
Look at him!! He looks comfy
Then I folded the handkerchief because Papoe Hates light when he sleeps. He always tries to find a place underneath something just to avoid the light.
Last but not least…I closed the box.
…now, look at him!! Sleeping soundly in his box-room
I woke him up the next morning…he was still inside
I put him back there just now. I hope he will learn to climb inside and made that box his special place. All my turtles have their own special place to sleep…all but Papoe.
Note: For those who are wondering why my fresh water turtles don’t sleep on their tank…it is because that’s how I trained them to be closer to me. They all sleep on the ground and back to their tanks in the morning.
