A newcomer in Ouled Mgatel

And we don't know how she came here!

We found this little turtle in a crate of plants that we brought back from Meknes two weeks ago. Did climb her way into the crate? No, she can't be that good a climber . Did one of our friend put it here, to make a joke? No, it sounds unlikely. Or maybe, was she buried in one of the flower-pots, sleeping until the end of her hibernation? Probably, because, as soon as we found her, she only wanted to hide under a rock or dive into the hay.

We built her a little house, and now she just stays there.

The turtle doesn't like parsley...
or maybe she's too shy, and doesn't want to be in the picture !
Too late, I was faster.
