  1. I see you saw my insta post about my new turtle! πŸ˜€
    I thought that was the easiest way for you to see him! I spent pretty much the whole day yesterday setting things up for him. I got a big aquarium in the garage that he sleeps in at night, but during the day, he gets to go outside! I fixed up Puddle Duck’s old pen for him, got her old kiddie pool out and he absolutely loves it! I put some sand down in the bottom and piled some up in the center where I put a big flat rock on it. I found out that he’s aquatic, so he spends most of his time underwater but they like to come out onto a flat surface sometimes, that’s called basking and I saw a wet trail on the rock when I checked on him yesterday afternoon so I know he used it.
    Idk where he came from, but I found out that he’s a Red Ear Slider. He’s not native in my state, in fact they consider him an invasive species in the wild here, so it probably wouldn’t have gone well if we had taken him to the wildlife rescue place. Red Ear Sliders are the most common pet species of turtle, so he could’ve been someone pet at one time. No one around us has any ponds and our backyard is enclosed, so I’m pretty sure a predatory bird dropped him in our backyard. He was there for at least 2-3 days before Felix found him, I heard some rustling in a pile of leaves a few days back in the area of the yard we found him. With as hot as it’s been here lately, he’s very lucky to be alive. He’s been less shy today when he sees me, so hopefully that means he’s getting used to seeing me and feeling more relaxed πŸ˜€ I’m reading up on turtles as fast as I can, I’m learning new stuff all the time!


    • Yes, your turtle is very lucky that he ended up with you! We used to have huge snapping turtles lay their eggs in our yard, but not since the brook dried up. I once found a baby one in our barn ~ it was the size of a quarter and at first I thought it was a plastic toy, until it moved! πŸ˜€
      Have you named him yet? ‘Lucky’ would be appropriate seeing as how fortunate he was!
      We’re having a heatwave here ~ supposed to reach the triple digits tomorrow. Finally put the air conditioner in the bedroom window, to make sleeping more comfortable.
      Well, I hope you’re able to deal with the heat ~ your area has been really hot for so long!
      Have a great weekend, Twiggy!


  2. I don’t know how lucky he is anymore, he got out of his pen and I can’t find him. I haven’t given up hope though, I’ve been looking all over for him and hopefully I’ll come across him. Turtles like to bask in the sun, that’s how Felix found him, so maybe he’ll come out of hiding and we’ll find him.


    • oh no! I hope you find him soon! He does need water to survive. Keep looking and hopefully he’ll come out of hiding. πŸ™‚
