One of the (many) odd habits of the large shell-less beings is their tendency to stop everything just to have a snack.

They might be walking along and all of a sudden their tummy grumbles.

So they drop what they are doing – just like that – often heading off in a completely different direction to go rustle up a bite.

This seems remarkably inefficient.

But there is no accounting for the personal habits of a species early in their evolutionary process.

As for you, the redfooted tortoise, you understand that snacking can be a seamless part of your daily activities.

No need to stop what you are doing when you start to feel peckish.
