    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.

    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...

    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...

    And The Tortoise

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

    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!

    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...

    *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...

    Turtles & Tortoises..

    I have always had red ear sliders as pets and they are meant to be in the wild. I always ended up feeling bad and giving them to someone with a pond or some sorta zoo. I love turtles and tortoises ever since I was a kid. But they are happiest living in the wild. I would only ever...

    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...

    They Have No Names.

    The kissing gold fish died. The fish bowl was empty and full of mold. The pet store only had two of them little turtles left, a male and a female. They fought like cats and dogs. They seem to want to kill each other. They seem to never come to terms. They would take turns to...

    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...

    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!
