Are turles the same as tortoises?
I thought so before that a tortoise is the same as the turle.
I was partly wrong and partly right.
According to experts:
“turles can be aquatic, semi-aquatic or mostly terrestial.”
That tortoises are also turtles.
They live on land.
They are not equipped to live in water.
Tiny lives on my tropical garden.
He has dug a small hole for himself to avoid the heat.
He eats kale and collard greens.
Sometimes I give him camote (sweet potato) leaves.
He likes them.
Everyday I water the tropical garden. When Tiny hears the noise of the water, he comes out always.
Tiny follows me around while watering.
I give him shower with my hose.
He used to hide his head the first time I did it.
Eventually he loves it. He does not hide his head anymore.
He only stops following me if I give him lots of camote leaves.
He is such a sweet pet. But I get scared sometimes when he follows me around the garden.
When he sticks out his head, it looks like a snake.
I hate snakes!
