Hey everyone...I'm new here. I was just browsing the net and came across this site and decided to join. I'm a true pet lover (reptiles especially). I recently got married and moved in with my new husband who has a small mixed breed dog, who is the same age as I! lol I always think that is funny. For a dog though, she's very old. He aquired her from a friend who no longer wanted her, sadly. She was orginally from the shelter though. You can see one of my Yellow Spotted Amazon River Turtles on my display pic. I have more pics that I'm currently downloading onto photobucket.com
Hi there welcome! Neat looking turtles. You will love it here, great place for info. I have sure gotten a lot of questions answered. For the most part like everything else, people are really decent. Hope to read more from you.
Welcome Sheffield. Nice to meet other parents of turtles, too. D.H. and I have 2 alligator snapping, 1 red-ear slider, 2 painted, and 1 soft shell. Plus 4 cats and two dogs and one jack dempsey cichlid.
I'm finding out that the expense of feeding the turtles are exceeding what I spend on the other zoo animals. They're eating about a 3# bag of shrimp or smelts a day.
