Malti, a young lady red footed tortoise who lives here with Bruce, Pearl and me (their mama) here at Casa Feathers n Beak n Shells, has it on very good authority that red footed tortoises are very important beings.
In fact, all tortoises – and turtles and terrapins, for that matter – are very important beings.
How do I know Malti feels this way? When she went missing last year for the longest 6 days of my life, I hired a wonderful animal communicator to help me find her.
The first time Dana, the animal communicator, talked with Malti, the first thing Malti said to her was, “I am a tortoise. I am a very important being.”
As her (totally unbiased and completely objective) mama, I have to say I wholeheartedly agree.
Malti is only three years old, but she has already taught me enough to convince me she is clearly older than I am. She’s also making me think perhaps I need a bigger brain.
Clearly there is no one better to explain all about the basics of being a red footed tortoise than our little red footed girl.
