Nico Bolzico, agripreneur and husband to Solenn Heussaff, loves to post about Patato, his Redfoot tortoise on Instagram. His funny and witty posts are proof how proud he of Patato, who, at this point, really is the size of a potato. As an (species) tortoise, Patato has a lot of growing to do, as his species can reach up to a foot long.
If you’re not following Nico on social media, you’re missing how Patato takes the spotlight all the time. Here are the eight best posts of Nico being a proud father to his not-so-shell-shy friend.
TECHIE TURTY – Isn’t a turtle browsing the internet one of the the cutest creatures you’ve seen in your life? Just don’t look to closely at what Patato is looking at!
Believe it or not #elpatato got his first official endorsement with @vitasoyph! But we didnt know which one was his favorite flavour! Now we do, he is an Original! I really feel patato taking the spotlight and going a bit diva mode! He already requested for a bigger balcony and only accepts Japanese apples! Also, he doesnt want to be a turtle playboy anymore, he is looking for the one! #patatotherevel #patatothebeast #tantarantantan #patatowaytobeaninja #celebratereal #realgoodvitasoy
SHELL-IBRITY – Patato isn’t just a pretty face—he’s got a knack for promoting things with flair as well.
During one of my sessions with my Shrink, sharing my fears and problems. What "shell" we do next doc? (Lamest joke so far!) #patatotheshrink #zoomonpatatonotes #patatomoments #realgoodvitasoy #letsSHELLebratereal #crazyeyesramirez To book a seesion with him please contact his assistant Splinter. Disclaimer: Patato is the main endorser of @vitasoyph, thats why the product placement in the back!
CREATURE TO TREASURE – Patato isn’t just there for the good times—he’s also become Nico’s great comforter and companion when the latter is down, which isn’t very often because how can you be sad when you’re married to Solenn?
WORK-OUT BUDDY – Patato believes that a “Healthy Turtle is a Happy Turtle,” so he makes sure to accompany his dad during work-outs.
Bebuuuuu! It is your birthday! We will spend this one apart. I treasure everyday I wake up next to you, even though I sleep in the dog house most of the time. I hope one day to be as sincere, honest, humble and caring as you. You make everyone around you better! This is the pica you sent me a few days ago coz I was missing you here in CDO! May be it is time to give #Patato a sibling 😁. Enjoy your special day! Te Amo! #buyingyouagiftthisweekend #hopefullyshelikesthepictureotherwisedoghouseagain
SHELL-ABRATION – Patato loves Mommy Solenn, too! He celebrates her birthday with her even though Daddy Nico is out of town.
MELON BALLER – Can’t blame why Patato is looking so ready to fight. He’s truly at home and probably done savoring his water melon.
My saturday morning started in very unexpected way! #ElPatato has spoken! There is no room for me in this house anymore! Just want to remember some goodtimes we had together: 1- When we did a remix of tantarantantan using Rhiana song: "All the Single Ladies" 2- The day we suppose to eat pellets but we ended up high on apple. 3- Sunday marathon of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: the movies and cartoons! Miguel Angel stills our favorite! 4- That walk in the park that took us 48 minutes to walk 13 meters. 5- Taking our first "SHELLfie" It was a good run Patato! I ll always love you! #nothingtoSHELLebratetoday #patatoisaSHELLebritynow #overusingtheSHELLjoke #butitisprettySHELLarious #okstop #goingtofillmytankattheSHELLstation #ihadtodothelast #asusualhashtagsoutofcontrol #patatothebeast
SLOWLY BUT SURELY – Even though dad spoils him with everything, Patato still chooses his Mommy Solenn over his Daddy Nico.
