I Know Them: A One Act


I KNOW THEM
It is 11:00 AM. BOB and I are at the Zoo.


BOB
Those are big turtles.


ME
(Reading from the sign)
Those are Aldabra tortoises. The scientific name is Geochelone Gigantea.



BOB
Those are big tortoises.


ME
It says the Aldabra tortoise is from the Aldabra Atoll in the Seychelles Islands of the Indian Ocean.


BOB
Is that a mama and a daddy?


ME
Maybe?


BOB
It is.


ME
How can you tell?


BOB
I know them. See? They are having a talk.


ME
What are they talking about?


BOB
Maybe snacks? I like snacks.


ME
Me too.


BOB
Now they are kissing.


ME
You think so?


BOB
Hurry. We have to go.


ME
Why? What's wrong?


BOB
They want a privacy for the kissing. I know them. Mama, don’t look.

  3. Do you know that those things only breed every ... like seven years????

    My son said a classic, about over a decade ago now while at the zoo, 'Hey look. That turtle is having a piggy back'!
