My yard turtle, Hercules, was sitting on this decorative stone mat. I put it in his yard yesterday, and when he discovered it this morning he went straight to it and sat with his neck outstretched, visibly thinking: "What the . . ?" (I could see the thought-bubble over his head.) I put his food dish on it and ran for the camera. And then the neighbor's dogs joined us, which didn't bother Herc at all, though he kept his eye on all of us as he went back to his breakfast.
And then the gate into his yard fell apart. Not sure how to fix it. It's always somethin'!
