The Spouse and I went to a turtle show this weekend. When we got there we were astounded to see that the place was packed. There was quite a line to get in and another line inside to see the turtles and tortoises. Mostly was I saw was the backs of people’s heads. I’m still astounded that there are that many people interested enough in tortoises and turtles in the area. I get the feeling that people were using the show as a sort of cheap zoo. It didn’t take long to decide that it would be much easier to observe tortoise behavior in our own backyard.
