Day 19: Herman’s patience is rewarded.


Herman was a patient tortoise. Over the past week or so he had done the best he could to communicate with the guardian that the basking area was lacking heat. He could see from the almost daily changes that the guardian was trying to fix the problem and he was confident that sooner or later she would figure it out. And this morning she did. When she replaced the ceramic heat emitter with a heat bulb she discovered that there was a problem with the lamp’s cord and needed to be replaced. After a quick fix got the heat lamp working again, Herman immediately settled in below it, pleased that his message had finally been heard.
