If there is one fact all shelled beings are born knowing, it is this: carrying a rock around on your back is great exercise.

Every time you take a walk, you will be building muscle and burning calories like a pro.

Of course, this can also make walking a very hungry sport.

All that walking can really work up an appetite!

To make the best time, you may not want to stop every single time you are in the mood for a snack.

This is where having a large shell-less assistant really comes in handy.

You can just keep walking around, looking very cute, and your slavishly devoted assistant will keep following you.

Then you can indicate you are ready for refueling by opening up your precious tortoise mouth and giving the universal signal for “bring me fresh snacks.”

By simply opening up your (adorable) tortoise mouth, you let your hovering large shell-less assistant know you are ready to refuel with fresh snacks.

And we love it. And you tell us you love it. Yay!

But if you would like to “pass the waffles” (or the mealworms, or the salmon) and gift your favorite flock member with a tasty treat, our beaks are wide open and grateful! 🙂
