Food imitating life?

We like to have a little fun here in Niger every once in a while. And often our poor turtle Harriet is part of our schemes!!

Here we decided to get Harriet a little friend and see if we could fool her!

She seemed hesitant to make new friends, but eventually peeked out for a look! Eventually she lost interest and we made a lovely lunch with her “friend”.

Do you remember this picture from last March when we got Harriet? She was tiny in the bowl and weighed in at just 300 grams!

16 months later and here she is today, filling the bowl and weighing in at 1.8 kilograms!
