Turtles See Lady With A Brush And Line Up For A Scrub

Nur Hafiza Ariffin was out playing in her garden and saw something she wasn’t expecting. It was a lady crouched at the edge of a pond with a scrub brush in her hand.

It also caught the attention of some other individuals who were in the area.

It seems as if she was trying to remove algae from their shells and they weren’t complaining about it.

“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.”


It appears as if everyone had a good day that day. “Such a heartwarming sight,” she added.

Turtles may not only appreciate the clean feeling, but they might also just like the feeling of having their shells brushed. It is how some turtle owners show affection to their pets.

No wonder the turtles were lining up to have their turn.
