Wearing a shell on your back is a great defensive strategy.

But sometimes the state of the world today is such that you need more than just your shell to be truly safe.

When this happens, it can be smart to look for a large shell-less rescue mama.

Of course, to do this you are going to have to (ahem) come out of your shell (on account of how you can’t see anything or anyone when you are tucked inside it).

First, it will be necessary to actually come out of your shell so as to spot your large shell-less rescue mama.

Once outside your shell, you can look around you for a being who is very large and has no shell.

This being is probably your large shell-less rescue mama.

Very large. Check. No shell. Check. This must be my large shell-less rescue mama.

The next part is quite easy. Just look up at her with your whirling red eyes open wide. Exude “cuteness.”

Before you know it, you will be scooped up, fed heartily, provided with everything a rescued 3-toed Texas box turtle could ever need, and loved and loved and loved….happily ever after.

  1. This reminds me of my 3-year old nephew assuring his great-grandmother regarding his turtle being inside its shell: “But it’s okay because it can see in the dark.”
