I Love Turtles

The animals not the chocolates... 282 People

    Collector and Past Turtle Owner

    I am obsessed with turtles.  I collect them in everything from stuffed animals to jewelry.  In college I had a pet aquatic turtle "Nuree," who was a false map turtle.  For now I am content with placing figures in my garden and in various places...

    My Babies

    I actually have four pet turtles. I have three little ones that are no bigger than the palm of your hand and are so sweet! As soon as they see me they come running towards the edge of their tank and crawl over each other to see who will be the first to get my attention. I've had...

    I Love Olivia and Stuart.

    Where do I start? Hmmmm... I have two red-eared sliders - Ollie and Stewie - both seven months old. They live in a 55-gallon customized tank. I've spent a lot of time and money just to keep them alive and well. To know how much I worship them, visit this URL: http...

    I'm going to get a turtle eventually,

    but I want to make sure I fully understand how to take care of them and how to supply them with what they need.

    TURTLETUDE

    Yeah, I love 'em.  They're awful cute, they take life easy, they aren't in a hurry, they have little pointy tails, and they are part of Creation.  'Nuff said!

    Why I Love Turtles...

    I own rental property.  Over 6 years ago a tenant moved out and left a small aquarium with a little painter in some wet sand.  It got taken out and left in a garage for about 4-5 days in the dead of winter.  Then I came across it and saw the motionless turtle...

    Consider This...

    I always seek to emulate the turtle.  After all, he lets trouble just roll off his back, he knows when to dig in and wait out a storm. And he never gets anywhere without sticking his neck out!

    And The Tortoise

    Turtles and Tortoises are my favorite animals. My favorite of them is, of course, the Alligator Snapping Turtle.

    There is a pet shop that I go to every chance I get. It has baby turtles all swimming around in a little tiny above ground pond. I have always loved turtles, and I have always wanted one. So I love to go to this pet shop and watch the little ones swim around. They usually just...

    *points At Her Name*

    I think one of the reasons I love turtles is that they can withstand almost anything.  They just pull into their shell and wait.  That's kind of how I handle the nastier bits of life.... just pulling in and waiting.  On the flipside, a turtle never gets...

    Awwww, they're so cute even though they might try to bite you sometimes. They are so cute when their little head comes out, and you move an object near it then they get frightened and move their head back in their shell. I love my pet turtle, and it's grown so much since I've...

    Admiration Into Art

    I never had the experience of having a pet turtle (although I've had pet everything else!) but I was raised to admire and respect everything. I live on a large property and sometimes I see wild eastern box turtles, or snappers. It makes my day! I've found several trying to dig...

    Two Turtles

    I do not like turtles nor do I hate turtles.  I do think they are cute though. My thing on turtles is neutral.  When I got married, (since my brother & I were very close), he bought himself two turtles.  When I returned from my honeymoon, he said: he missed me and got himself...
