Check out the short video about our Scotty meeting a tortoise for the first time.
Tiago (our Scotty with an attitude) grew up in the big city and rarely came into contact with wild animals. Having moved down here to Sandbaai, Hermanus, and lving next to a green belt and the ocean, there is an abundance of wild life.
We were working in the garden, and we heard Tiago barking, but it was a diffrent type of bark, so off we went to investigate what was going on. (The week before he came face to face with a Cape Cobra snake).
We found him sitting watching a tortoise – and he would ‘attack” the tortoise everytime it moved. It was hilarious watching him interact with the Tortoise.
He now knows what they are – so he is not too phased anymore.
Bubbles our other dog – she beacame the tortoise hunter – but that story is for another time.
