    Bob the Turtle!

    My dad was cutting the grass and almost ran over a baby turtle, so he gave him to me. I gave him a little bit of veggies and bugs to eat and decided it was best to let him back out to the creek, instead of keeping him. I quick named him Bob!

    Here's some picks LOL.






    Picture of the release! xD

    Look closely and you'll see him.


    Enjoy!

    You have made Bob a very happy turtle. "He" is a very cute red-ear slider. Judging by the short claws in front, Bob is probably a female.
    Looks like you picked out a very nice place for her to live.

    yep it is a female, but it is an Eastern painted turtle.
    Bob was luck to have found you.

    Re: Bob the Turtle!

    Nice job on the save/release! I rescued an eastern painted crossing the road recently, and I'll probably release it this weekend. I love their colors. Wish I could add one to the collection, but I don't have room for any more turtles right now.
