Malti Explains Redfoot Tortoises: Bathing

If you’ve been following along with our little flock’s adventures for some time now, you probably remember that pivotal moment in May 2014 (four years ago now – wow!) when Malti first joined our family.

She was so little! She bathed in a tupperware lid at first, and then “graduated” to a teensy tiny tort pool.

Malti’s first official bathing pool!

Fast forward nearly 300 grams and my little girl is fast outgrowing the “little” category. She has moved through several bathing tubs both indoors and outdoors.

Today, she has an outdoor pool that rivals her semi-aquatic box turtle sibling in both size and depth. And because she loves dirt so much, I never have any trouble figuring out if she has visited her bathing pool on any given day.
