Our two previous posts were considered as prologue of this post…or it can also be said as this post is the epilogue of the previous 2 posts in our blog 🙂
Last Monday, I shared about Salmonella inside our poop that eventually stayed on our skin. Last Wednesday, Kroten shared pictures of our love competition with our human cousin, Satrio or Rio for short. Today, we sum those2 posts together.
Rio is a very active little baby, he is now 10,5 months but he shows no fear at all. He is so curious about us.
When he still couldn’t do anything but sleeping, he loved to hold mommy’s turtle toy. When he finally could sit down, he always wanted to see us while being carried by his mother or our mommy.
And now that he has ability to crawl…..
He starts chasing us down.
First, he was only poking my shell.
Then, he started grabbing Kroten’s shell and moved her like he was playing with toy car, no picture was taken because mommy took Kroten straight away and put her back inside her tank.
Later, when he saw me, he poked my head and forced it into my shell.
Since we are 2 nicest turtles in the world, we never tried to bite him (as we never did bite anyone unless we think it was a food).
Actually, whatever he did to us was because he was so curious with us.
I know one day we will be great buddies 🙂
One thing that makes our relationship difficult to work is those little creatures called salmonella. Babies are easier to be infected by those tiny bacteria than grown-ups. Since mommy doesn’t want anything happens to her favorite nephew…she rarely let him touch us and when he did touch us, she cleaned his hands straight away. And she never let him touched us while we were still wet…always waited till we are full dried.
Beside that, whenever he comes to visit us, mommy avoids touching us as often as she touches us when he isn’t around. She is afraid she might forget to wash her hands before touching Rio. We also spend most of our time inside the tank, she won’t let us roam around the house like we usually do when he isn’t visiting us. In short, when he comes, our freedom becomes limited 😦 We will be as free as before once he becomes, at least, 5 years old.
So…what do you think of our relationship? 😉
