Bass said that Sapphire also seems to be afraid of big camera lenses — perhaps because of her memories from her days as an exotic attraction. Now, thankfully, Sapphire is seen as an individual rather than a photo prop — and she gets only the attention she wants.
Sapphire also has a bit of a quirky fear, adding to her unique personality: "She seems to be afraid of snakes," Bass said.
Thankfully, Sapphire won't have to worry about any unwanted visitors — human or reptile. Her caretakers are there to keep her safe — and, of course, give her all the toys she wants.
