Goin' Fishing!

Sora loves sitting on the terrapin tank. At first I tried relentlessly to stop her but after a while realized I was fighting a losing battle. It's primarily the heat that draws her to it. During the winter it's the warmest place in the house. I occasionally take the small lid on the top off, as on sunny days it can get a bit stuffy in there from the heat generated by the light...I found her like this today, with the tip of her tale lightly caressing the waters surface. As I feed the terrapins by hand they expect any intruding appendages are offering food. One of these days they're going to bite the tip of her tail if she's not careful...and I know from experience that if they think they are munching food they don't let go!
