  5. Turtles & Tortoises
    my friend has good intentions, but just doesn't seem to think things through. A few months ago, she saw that the local dollar store was selling baby RES turtles, and felt sorry for them, so bought one. She's been keeping the little guy in a bowl (a large food bowl) with a rock in the center so...
  6. Turtles & Tortoises
    I have had my turtle for about 15 years now. He has always been an only turtle because I knew I could never handle two of them. He is HUGE and I cannot imagine how big of a tank I would need for 2 of them. Well I am beginning to feel a bit guilty that he has no friends. I went to our little...

    In the latest edition of the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR), a publication of Centers for Disease Control, there is an article about turtles and instances of salmonella infections. A significant number of these arose from small Red Eared Sliders purchased at flea markets. Here is...

    Before I totally wreck my pond and make it deeper and bigger, I thought I'd take pics of how it is now. Not much of a pond, but I'm hoping to change that :) I need to install the fountain again also. As of now, just some Gambusia and pond snails inhabit it, but I've added some old pics of past...

  15. General Animal Discussion
    I was just curious as to how we all decide on names for our furry, or not so furry, friends. My cat Isis is named after the cat goddess, and Polly just seemed to suit my other cat. I also used to have a kitty called fletcher one eye, because he got an eye infection when he was a baby and...

  20. Vents and Rants
    Today I went over a friend's house to meet with a few people and shoot a video for school. I'm pretty good friends with all the kids there, so it was really fun. But, this girl is an only child and is so spoiled, but she's still pretty nice. This is where it gets bad, she has four full grown...
