Everyone needs a pet — even the Clay Center for the Arts & Sciences.
Their cute little green guy is Baby T, a turtle.
She has her own Facebook page:
I enjoy worms, crickets, tomatoes, sitting in my water dish, the band Devo, and my stuffed bear. I also like meeting people who visit my museum. Come visit me sometime!
Dislikes: Apatosaurus skeletons
Then, a few days ago, Baby T offered up some more personal info:
Update: My favorite color is yellow.
A fan then asked a very logical question: For some reason I’m curious as to how you figured this out.
Baby T responded: It is the most delicious color.
Baby T is having a birthday party from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday. The birthday bash is included in regular museum admission. There will be educational programs by animal rescue and conservation experts. The event will include games, turtle crafts and free ice cream donated by Baskin-Robbins.
Her actual birthday is unknown because she was found in the wild by a biologist and donated to the center when she was quite ill.
Baby T commented on the occasion on her Facebook page: I made a new song. It goes like this: BIRTHDAY BIRTHDAY BIRTHDAY BIRTHDAY PARTY PARTY PARTY PARTY! I hope you like it.
