Day 5: Herman gets a bath.

13.11.07.Herman-5Herman was a tortoise and generally preferred to take a bath in his shallow basking pond, which allowed him the freedom to enter and exit the water as he wished. After a significant dip in the humidity levels of his home, however, his guardian decided it was time for Herman to have a bath. Herman was suspicious of the round plastic container that brought him in closer proximity to the dog, but Lucy stayed away, and he had no reason to doubt the intentions of his guardian.

After he had his fill of water, he took the opportunity to look around the room from a new perspective. Once he was bored, he simply peed in the water to let the guardian know that he was done and ready for his dinner.
