Follow Pearl, Malti, Bruce & Io
When I first met Malti, she was sitting calmly in the center of a small plastic container.
Her younger brother, another redfoot tortoise, was busily running circles around her inside the container.
When given the choice between the two, I selected Malti – something just told me she was the one and I went with that.
With the exception of her 6-day escapade a couple of years ago (and even then I suspect she ambled, rather than raced, away from me that day), she has always maintained her same chill, rest-centric personality.
Malti pretty much never passes up a meal or a nap!
She also seems to have an innate ability to find the comfiest spot and head straight for it, burrowing in to catch a few zzzz’s.
