Tortoise and the Heir

Queen Tortiebeth III is rather pleased with her reflection. Everybody bow.

This critically endangered Egyptian Tortoise quite enjoys her delusions of grandeur, via Zooborns.



  1. *bows down*

    But you ARE GRANDE, Tortiebeth!!! They AREN;T delusions, at all!! 🙂

  2. I was trying to think of something clever but nothing came out of my beady brain. All hail the queen. Long live the queen.

  3. “My goodness, is that how my hair looks?!”

    (P.S. Och, how can you not have included the photo of the four wee turtles!)

  4. I think she’s looking rather pence-ive. Or perhaps she’s feeling penny-tent.

  5. P.S. Even the most stout-hearted monarch can sometimes feel apprehensive when facing change.
