Is This National Brush-a-Turtle Day ?

One gracious visitor to the Singapore Botanic Gardens has evidently found the key to the hearts of a group of turtles living there.

That key? Well, it’s a brush.While paying a visit to the gardens recently, Nur Hafiza Ariffin happened upon a curious scene. There, crouched on the banks of a pond in the park, was a lady wielding a bristled scrubber.

Ariffin clearly wasn’t the only one who noticed.

In front of the lady, dozens of turtles were eagerly emerging from the water — lining up so she could give them a scrub.

Ariffin believes the woman’s aim was to help rid the turtles’ shells of algae, a thoughtful offer they appeared delighted to accept.

“Spreading kindness in every way possible,” Arrifin wrote. “[The turtles] happily came towards her to get their backs cleaned, and once it was done they cutely walked off.”

“Such a heartwarming sight,” she added.

Needless to say, a good time was had by all. Turns out, even if a turtle doesn’t need cleaning, they seem to enjoy the feeling of bristles on their shells. In fact, that’s one recommended way of petting them.

It’s no wonder then that the lady Ariffin saw that day is so popular among the locals.
