When I First Met Toto...

My 3 sharks made the tank full of life and energy. I would love to see them swim and hop whenever I opened the lid. One fine day, I thought of feeding them live blood worms instead of the boring granules!



I visited the aquarium shop to buy the same and there the shopkeeper was showing a bunch of turtles to one of his customers. I got fascinated by one of the turtles in the shopkeeper’s container. The container had 3 more turtles. The other 3 were quiet while my lovely one was moving its legs so rapidly as if it would fly in a while! I loved its enthusiasm. Its green shell, striped skin, tiny legs enthralled me all the more towards it. When I moved my hand towards the one month old, it dug itself inside its shell and peeped from the corner of its cute eyes. And I yelled “I WANT IT”!

It encouraged me to bring it home. I named it Toto and introduced it to my sharks. Now its 4 months old and roams in every corner of my house like a family member.
