Living in close quarters with beings of others species can require an ongoing commitment to education.

Or, rather, re-education.

Sure, it is true you enjoy a good refreshing outdoor mud wallow as much as the next being.

After all, who doesn’t?

But that doesn’t mean you can’t appreciate other comforts as well.

Take snuggles, for example.

Some beings might assume that just because you have a hard domed tortoise shell on top of you that you aren’t snuggly or cuddly.


Because if there is one thing that redfoot tortoises readily appreciate, it is comfort. Resting. Snoozing. Relaxing.

And when you have an (admittedly odd, yet devoted) large shell-less mama who is always up for snuggles with shells, you can certainly add cuddling to your repertoire of great ways to meet your daily “relaxation quota” (a technical term).

Snuggling might not be so readily available in your natural outdoor environment, but when opportunity knocks, a smart and snooze-minded shelled being certainly will rush (amble) to the door to let it in!
