I do believe that I have mentioned it here so many times that my Kroten used to be a shy turtle. She came from a bad petshop where they just let her had shell rot and lost all her nails. Whatever treatment she got there made her kept her distance from me.
Unlike my Kame (may her always sleep in peace) who straight away trusted me and became an attention seeker in within a month…it took over a year for me to touch Kroten without her running away from me.
…and it took 4 years for her to finally realized that I love her so much and trusted me by following me around. She is now as attention seeker as my Kame used to be.
Every morning when we wake up, she follows me everywhere I go and raises her hands wanting to be lifted.
I think this video can tell you more than written words 🙂
