Why yes, I googled terrapin in German.
Ace got 5 Terrapins in the last 3 days and that’s only because he’s constrained from the Big Woods about 20 hours / day.
In case my Deutsch is off, that’s what you get when you learn by hearing neighbours talk from baby to teen, then living on the Continent with a German roomie: ‘not good German.’
We keep relocating them off El Rancho Reedo but it’s getting old. I don’t want him to get to break the shell and eat one because I think that’ll mean he never leaves them alone. I keep saying ‘mine’ and taking them from him. ::sigh::
In good news, Ace likes to play in the rain and is not askert of thunder. In case I failed to mention, he also rides beautifully in the car! He lays down when I crank the engine and stays down the whole time. Very unlike my special-needs boy!
