Niko & Monica

Bestie: Niko

Bestie Species: Tortoise!

Human: Monica

🐢 How old is Niko and how small is she?

Niko is around 4 1/2 years old – there’s no real way to know for sure- and she is 6 inches across (aka large hamburger size.) 🍔

🐢 Can you let us know what is a typical day like for you both?

Typically, she gets her light 🌞 turned on early in the day and her food and water, before I head to work. When I get home, we tend to cuddle and watch TV or movies together. 

🐢 Can you tell us a bit about life with a tortoise? What is her favorite food? Where does she sleep?  

Life is great for this tortoise! She has her own set up with a hide-away and all. But, often  she gets wrapped in a blanket and she’ll sleep right next to me 😍. Her favorite snacks are bananas and carrots, but she mostly eats green leafy foods. 🍌🥕🥗

🐢 What made you choose a tortoise as a best friend?

I have always loved turtles but we just had an instant connection 🔁 when I saw her at the pet store. 

🐢 Have you always love tortoises?

Yes, and Niko from the moment I saw her at the store. 😊

🐢 What does FriendshipCollar mean to you?

Having a way to match my favorite critter and look stylish while doing it. 💁🏼‍♀️

🐢 Can you tell us the sweetest thing Niko does?

She crawls onto your shoulder just under your neck and falls asleep. 💤

🐢 Tell us a fun story about your BFF 🙂

Some of the funniest 😂 times with her are when she plays hide and seek – she is a master of hiding spots! 

🐢 Can you describe your BFF in 3 words?

So. Stinking. Cute! 😄

🐢 Niko is my best friend because….

Who would have thought there would be so much personality in one little tortoise?
