I have mentioned it so many times here how each turtle behaves differently and become approachable in their own time. Kame was an instant love at first sight, both of us became comfortable in no time. Kroten needed one and half year to show no fear and 4 years to show affection and eagerness to be touched and lifted. Kurome only took less than six months to grow attached to me….Now, Papoe is the one taking longer time than all my turtles.
I have him for more than 2.5 years and yet he still runs away when I want to touch him…but as the old saying, good things come to those who wait.
He showed amazing improvement last week. I was soooooo happy. It was a great progress.
Look at how he hangs around near us and recognizes his own name … I am sooo sooo sooo happy. I am a proud turtlemom. I look forward to see how he behaves in the future
