You know I am the first turtle in the family, right?
That means I am the older sister and Kroten is the younger sister, right?
Based on that, I should have more power than her and I could boss her around, right?
Well…unfortunately, things don’t go that way 😦
Yes, it’s true that she is younger than me…but she has harder life than me (that was before she becomes part of our little family) and somehow that makes her more powerful than me.
She likes to push me around and intimidate me.
Look at this picture below!
It shows our ‘rooms’. There isn’t any plastic tank bigger than the ones you see below…but even so, this size is still too small for both of us. Mommy decided to buy 2 tanks, one for me and one for Kroten. It looked like a good deal. However…there is one simple problem…she couldn’t share the window for both of us. Fortunately, I got the perfect spot. At certain months a year, the sun always shine right through the window and lands on my basking area. I always enjoy that moment 🙂
Please keep this in mind!! The basking area belongs to me…she was just visiting for a while and yet she stepped over me and took all the sun for her!!!
Do you think she has changed to a nicer girl by now?
The answer is NO!!
I will show you some pictures taken recently (you can tell the different by seeing my shell)
Stepping over me is no longer a fun thing for her!! She pushed me down. Then, she pretended that she had done nothing wrong…just look at her face!! Fortunately mommy was there to comfort me.
When I already climbed back to my basking area…she looked so arrogant as if the basking area belonged to her.
I tried to push her aside and she smartly grabbed the basking area *arrrggghhh!!!*
Finally, I was able to push her down 🙂
But…..she climbed back on to both my basking area and me. You can see my furious face there.
I couldn’t shake her off because she was holding my leg strongly.
Mommy sometimes did something like this picture below. She put Kroten on the side on the tank…but that required intense watching-out and a pillow underneath. She only did it when she had free time to watch her. I think that was the best solution with or without her watching over Kroten *devil smile*
I hope you agree with me that my little sister is an annoying intimidator (>.<)
