In that small little cage, just beyond the Baboon sanctuary at the Singapore Zoo, we chanced upon two what-seemed-to-be-like African spurred tortoises, circling each other, round and round, with their eyes fixed intently upon one another. Somewhere inside my head, someone screamed: “Turtle fight!”
These two are really gonna go for it!
Turtle No. 1 looks fierce, ready to pounce any minute…
Turtle No. 2 looks anything but scared
And Turtle No. 1 goes in for the kill… lands a nasty bite on Turtle No. 2’s cute, adoring, and pitiful ‘face.’ No. 2’s got a wounded pride following that big adrenaline dump
Turtle No.2’s not buying it and attempts to take another ‘tongue-y’ and ‘gumsy’ bite at No.1’s still exposed nose which it tried desperately to conceal through its shell.
And all is well. =D
