Diet

It’s an absolute lie that turtles don’t eat pumpkins. A complete myth.

As a turtle, Shivago couldn’t help to take it personally when he saw a single leaf of lettuce on his small ceramic plate. Every single day. It was an insult. He started fantasizing about keeping his owner locked in a room, feeding her nothing but mud or grass or wet sticks.

Of course that was not a healthy thought and Shivago knew it. He had to leave.

The door was open, a cracked opportunity.

Shivago slowly ran towards freedom.

The pumpkins were surely out there, waiting for him.
