    I Have 4

    They are so cute, when they walk they look like little crawling babies with bulging diapers.  They're low maintinence too, they eat peanut butter and jelly and love mac & cheese.

    They're Adorable

    I got them after holding some at an aquarium. I just fell in love with the little guys! I went to Petco and picked two up. Natural shells--painted shells look tacky to me. I got one with a pretty normal looking shell. The other one's shell looked like an S design. I named them...
