Does anyone else’a tort like. Run over and greet them when you enter the room ? it’s honestly my favorite part of coming home. Another thing too, does anyone else’s spin in circles when you rub/scratch their shells and chase you when you stop and walk away lol. Respond back with the funny things your torts do ? 0768224A-9285-481A-8478-50E2CEBABDDD.jpeg

Mine will come and greet me, and loves to listen to music. He perks up and goes to where it is playing when he hears his favorite songs. And yes, he does have favorites.
Sometimes it calms him down too.



(And he never seems stressed)
But, then again, I didn't think torts could hear the same way we could.....

He doesn't hear like we do. He feels the vibrations made by the music. Have you ever been near a big speaker when it's cranked up? You feel the music, especially the low notes, in your stomach. I think that's what it's like for torts.
