The Tortoises Shell Out Some Advice for This Valentine's Day

Larry and Mrs. Larry haven't been together all that long - only a few years - but they've learned some things about love that they'd like to share with all of you.

* No matter how much you love each other, sometimes the tank you live in can start to feel a little small and confining. It's okay to take a bit of a break from each other. Everyone needs a little "me" time.

*  Sharing what you love with who you love makes it even better.

* You've got to let the other tortoise be who they are - even if it's a little unconventional. (Mrs. L would like it noted that it's Larry being "unconventional" in the two photos below.)

* No matter how hard-shelled you are, there's nothing like having someone to lean on.

Happy Valentine's Day from all of us here at The Shellshank Redemption!


  1. Awesome post! These turtles are the best.

  2. Thanks, Milo. I'll let them know you're a fan. :)

  3. This is adorable! The unconventional turtle is a crack up. : )

  4. Emily, although it's Larry in the photos being "unconventional," the Mrs has her moments, too. :)

  5. Hehe, I love these. I hope you and Larry and Mrs. Larry had a great Valentine's Day!
