When the large shell-less beings love each other, they like to do something called “dancing cheek to cheek.”

Of course, when you happen to have a shell, this also means your ears and your cheeks are located in pretty much the same place, which can make hearing the dance beat tricky at best.

(Never mind that you are a land tortoise with ears optimized for hearing under water, which is really a topic for another blog post.)

Luckily, when your goal is simply to let another being know you really love them, there is a better way.

You can touch noses.

Touching noses is like saying “I love you” – only even better!
