    My Turtle (w/pics)

    I thought I'd share this little guy with you all. I found him in the middle of the road one day while I was walking my dog. Where he'd been living was not a permanent body of water and I didn't want him to get killed out there so I brought him home. He's a pretty interesting pet and caring for him has become my new hobby.

    So here are some pictures of Avenue, the Florida Chicken Turtle Hatchling. Anyone else have turtles too?

    omg he is adorable! I love baby turtles, they are so CUTE!

    I have one Red Eared Slider, he was my uncle's (like my iguana) but he just stopped caring for it so i took over. I'm in the process of buying him a bigger tank and a filter now. Here is a pic of him...

    I was pretty sure keeping wild turtles was illegal? Maybe it depends on where you live. Anyway, I wish I could see the pic (my internet is acting up, bummer!)

    I'm going to get him a bigger tank when I move, for right now the one he's in is plenty lol. He eats turtle pellets and loves crickets. Not big on veggies but this species is mostly carnivorous. I'm going to try some worms. The pet store I went to only had super worms and they were way too big for him lol.

    Doug is gorgeous! When I found this little guy I started looking up info on turtles and Eastern Painteds are on of them ones I really like.

    I know that it is illegal to sell them if they are this size. As far as keeping them, I'm not sure but yes it does depend on where you live.

    We have a turtle too! Her name is Emma and we've had her about 15 years. She is a south east asian box turtle, but they are semi aquatic, so shes in a big tank with half 'land' and the other water. She is quite friendly and has never offtered to bit any of us. She was pretty little when we got her though, so shes known us for a long time.
    The summer before last I caught a tiny, common snapping turtle. We brought it home and put up a tank. We just kept him for the summer and then turned him back to the pond. He was always a fiesty little thing!!! I guess you have to be when you're that size!
