My mom has a turtle (actually it's my brother's old turtle). His name is Buddy and he'll eat turtle stick food right out of your hand. He is super cool. :)

My brother also had a box turtle which I kept in my apt. in college. Sometimes I'd let him out to walk around my apt. Whenever I'd go to pick him up and put him back in his tank, I'd freak him out so badly he'd leave a tiny bit of green poo on my carpet.

I have been reading all day turtle and tortoise rescue websites. Oh my god, there are so many ways you can fuck up keeping captive turtles! I am stressed out just reading about it!!!

I too am pro-turtle. If you are ever hanging out with my mom, ask her about when she was little and about my grandpa's turtles. Apparently, in the 1950's, there was a fad where pet stores sold turtles with painted shells. Ack, I know. But so there were always a lot of turtles being sold. And my grandpa would always feel sorry for the last turtle in the batch, and would bring it home. So this happened like 20 times. And my mom grew up with a lot of turtles.

I nearly got myself killed yesterday on a backroad from my work stopping to pick up and ferry a box turtle across the road. The pizza delivery guy was zipping along and had to stand on the brakes. Couldn't decide whether I was simply soft hearted or stupid, since I did nearly pee my pants!

That's what started this whole thing... a few months ago I failed to ferry a poor guy across 216 in time. I feel like I owe something to turtles everywhere. So I'm really, really glad to hear your story!!!

my girl did something you're not supposed to do - buying a tiny turtle from one of those beach places while she's on vacation with baby daddy momma!

but I vow that we will both learn about our turtle and take the absolute best care of him that we can. no tiny little plastic box house for him, for starters.

If you want two red-eared sliders, you're welcome to them. Seriously.

Though perhaps you are well past your turtle obsession day, I must chime in to tell you I saw an alligator snapper and a painted turtle in their natural environ on Tuesday just passed. :D
