Just being born with a shell automatically makes you a great candidate for being an ambassador animal.

If you happen to be both shelled and ectothermic (or what your large shell-less assistant likes to call “cold-blooded”) you are even more qualified.

After all, you are one of the longest-lived species on this small round blue and green planet.

Which means your survival-of-the-fittest resume is flawless.

After all, you have been through things most other species cannot even dream of. You have watched dinosaurs and saber-toothed tigers and asteroids and Ice Ages come….and go.

Yet you are still here.

Still wearing your handy-dandy protective shell. Still looking cute as ever in your built-in mobile home camouflage.

You have the wisdom and perspective – not to mention the compassion – that only immense quantities of time and life experience can deliver.

Which means you can see far below the surface facade that your fellow planet-mates like to throw up when life sends lemons after they specifically ordered lemonade.

You may not be very tall or very big, but you don’t need to be either to be very wise and perceptive!

You can sense just when one of your flockmates is going the extra mile for everyone around them and needs a little extra TLC and appreciation themselves.

You easily see the small acts of continual kindness and care that most others readily miss.

And you are always ready to say “thank you for caring” with one of your special shelled rainbow hugs.
