Choosing one of the large shell-less beings to be your assistant guarantees you can have a lot of fun on a daily basis.

For example, let’s say it gets very cold outside and your assistant gets busy setting up your indoor boudoir – complete with all your favorite snoozing accessories.

Inside, you find your stinky (oh so fragrant), wet sphagnum moss, your favorite plush turtle, your tortoise warmer and….your coconut coir hide.

Oh this is going to be good.

You crawl inside and arrange everything just so to make the coziest, comfiest bed.

And then you wait.

When your large shell-less assistant comes out the next morning to wake you up, you make sure to get her attention right away.

First, you wait until she is paying close attention to you (a whiff of “cuteness” is all it takes).

And then you unveil your big special surprise – guess who has grown literally overnight?!

The moment you’ve been waiting for. Voila – no more little tort!

What do you think of Malti’s special surprise?
