Cousin Dede is away at a baseball tournament. He asked me to watch over his tortugas (translation: tortoises). Mom and Dad say that maybe when I'm older and bigger I might be able to get a pet like this. They are pretty low maintenance, quiet, not too smelly, and kind of prehistoric. They are also really tough. However, Mom and Dad both taught me how to give gentle pats.
This is Roger (forward) and Echo (rear). They are both Russian tortoises. And both were rescued from the Humane Society. Echo is still a little skiddish and will hiss on occasion. Roger is much more outgoing. Both are surprisingly fast, too.
Mom and Dad have found me several times spying on them while they eat, sleep, or dig. Once they even found me standing on top of my cozy coupe but they were too frightened to grab the camera for fear I'd fall into the tortuga encounter area.
Mom did let me go for nap late one day so I could watch them eat. Roger really loves his veggies. He is also really into bath time, too. None of us realized how much personality these kinds of pets could have.

|The main attraction for me - the "claw machine"!|
|Blowing bubbles from the giant bubble.|
|Making a movie by taking photos of the bus...|
|Examing pond water under the microscope - there were things moving in there!|
|At the grocery store - everything is my size!|
|More grocery shopping...|
|Checking out my groceries...|
|Playing with a green screen...|
|There I am on the screen with the BIG shark!|
What a fun day!!!

|We are standing at the same level - she is giagantic!!! Mom said she was kind of scary.|
|Every time I go to the zoo, I set on this tiger. Either it's shrinking or I'm getting bigger!|
|Hanging out with the penguin models.|
Today the penguins were the big hit - maybe because it was so cold and it was warm inside this exhibit or maybe they were just a little more animated than usual. I kept saying, "This water is digusting." Maybe time for a tank cleaning?
|In the past couple years, I've become braver and braver on this slide. Check me out.|
Something that was especially impressive to me were the lions. They were not yet out of the cages and running in their encounter area. But I could hear them roaring to come out. My rationale - they needed to go potty and were voicing their unhappiness.
Here's an interview from my trip to the zoo. It was quite cold and Mom, who was taking the video, had Bebe Sister in the pack. In order to keep her quiet during the video she had to keep swaying. It might also explain why I'm a bit soft spoken, too.
