The official Instagram profile of the Perth Zoo recently took to Instagram to share a video of a cute red-eared slider nibbling on peas. In the video, the tiny creature can be seen moving extremely slow, enjoying its meal.
“Hungry, hungry…turtle,” the zoo wrote. They then described that “The Red-eared Slider has a distinctive red stripe behind each ear, which fades with age.” In the caption, they also mentioned the one of the keepers of the place, named Marty, captured the clip.
Take a look at the clip:
Since being shared, the post has gathered over 14,000 likes. People also appreciated the post through their comments. While some wrote about the turtle’s cuteness, others had questions about the green peas.
“This is so cute,” said an Instagram user. “Hungry turtle enjoying a few M&M’s?” asked another. “Eat your veggies junior,” wrote a third.
The video of the turtle is not the only one that left people with a smile. The clips of other animals, shared by the zoo, sparked happiness too.
