Tortoises like playing games just as much as any other pet. Malti loves games – the scarier the better.
For example, let’s say you feel like playing a rousing round of the super-frightening game “hide n seek.” You scour the area and discover an intriguing soft tunnel that is perfectly tortoise-sized.
You crawl in…and keep crawling and crawling and crawling until you are thoroughly well hidden.
Then you wait for your large shell-less mama to come and seek you. Although you wait a long time, you don’t mind because you are really cozy and comfy and you pass the time with an enjoyable nap.
Finally, your mama, who unfortunately isn’t that good at hide n seek and has already scoured the entire postage-stamp-sized casa seeking you, gets with the program and discovers you in your super-secure hiding spot tucked away deep inside the sleeve of the duvet cover.
At first, it seems like your mama might be the teensiest bit irked, but then you realize you were wrong because she starts cooing at you and offering you treats and looking visibly relieved.
