If you love to sleep, there is no better species to be than a box turtle.
Talk about a sleep maestro!
When everyone else is slogging through the cold and the damp and the windy that is the cold season, you are hunkered down for an extended restful snooze.
(On a side note, this handily explains why you wake up each spring looking just as young and cute as you did when you went to sleep, while your large shell-less rescue mama looks one year older as usual).
In fact, sleep is so restful, so relaxing, so enjoyable and so stress-free you might be inclined to stay in bed even longer.
But you know you are missed. You are needed. You are loved.
And so, even as the cold continues and you dream the days away, the day will come soon enough when it is time to wake up again.
When you do, you know who will be waiting, because she can’t wait to see you and share your bright and your brave with the world.
