If you are small and very stealthy and silent and have a large shell-less assistant who is anything but, there is a fun game called “I Spy” you can play to really freak her out.

Here is what to do.

Let’s say your assistant comes looking for you to do her daily “box turtle safety checks.”

But you are so small and stealthy and silent she can’t find you anywhere inside your enclosed habitat.

As she keeps searching and searching for you, gently lifting up ferns and peering under rocks and behind logs and all that, suddenly pop your head – just your head – out from among the grasses.

Then wait for her reaction.

Priceless.

  1. Sounds like Bruce is taking lessons from super spy 007 Pearl. I know well those moments of panic when you are looking and looking for a small being and can’t find them anywhere. Meanwhile, they are hiding in some corner laughing at your fumbling attempts. Love the picture. That studly little head peeking out from all the green fronds delicately framing his many tortoise head while complementing his lovely colors.
