Day 101: Basking Beauty

You can take the girl out of the forest, as they say, but you can’t take the forest out of the girl.

Or something like that.

Here, your mama can mutter about “the importance of full ultraviolet spectrum light” all she wants.

But as a tropical tortoise who is adapted for life under deep leafy cover, that bright spotlight feels just like someone has pinned a “come and get it” sign right on top of your bountiful young booty!

And you are having none of it.

How to let your large shell-less mama know you prefer to do your basking in private, thank you very much.
