It’s been a while since my last post on Kame and Kroten’s differences series. Since this is going to be a loooong series, I decided to make a new category and page for this differences post. The Category is called Kame vs Kroten, the page goes under the same title. I make the page as a way to make easy for new readers to know more about them.
My last post is about Kame and Kroten’s differences in eating behavior. This time, I want to share how difference they are in the way they look at me. This won’t be a long post, it has more photos than words 😉
I can’t tell you for sure why they are so different, most likely it is because of the way they were raised before they lived with me. Kame was taken out of the petshop since little tiny baby, she lived with my in-law’s friend and then moved with 2 months later. Kroten lived in pet shop longer than Kame, she had light green color at that time, kinda like sick turtle (tho it turned out she is a morph). My theory is, probably, the longer a certain pet lives in pet shop, the more difficult it trusts people.
Since baby, Kame has a pair of eyes that show eagerness and love. She always looks at me straight in the eyes with both of her eyes looking at me.
Unlike Kame, Kroten has a pair of prejudice eyes, she looks at people with one eye and I can see how that eye seems to calculate whether she can trust me or not.
This way of looking at me grows with them. Kame still shows eagerness and love and Kroten still has suspicious eyes.
Kame always looking at me with eyes as if saying ‘please pick me up…please pick me up!!’
While Kroten often looks at me as if saying ‘what do you want?’
Even when they both look at me with one eye (or side way), Kame shows tenderness while Kroten shows doubt.
This photo (along with other 5 photos) has been published before in a post called Unusual Plant
Look at their eyes when they are put together like this:
Fortunately, Kroten has been getting better and better each year, that suspicious eyes of hers have become less and less, nowadays she shows more tenderness and love.
I hope the photos do justice to what I have been trying to say here, because we all know that sometimes photo can’t capture the real thing 100%.
