Bye Bye Turtle

Our pet aquatic turtle "Master Yoda" that we got on vacation 3 yrs ago had to find a new home on Tuesday. He started out very tiny when we got him and lived in a little case for the first year. Then we got a 10 gallon aquarium awhile back and he started growing like crazy. He outgrew his aquarium and had started moving things around in it trying to get out. We were not up to buying anything bigger, plus he was starting to smell every time he ate. We decided to take him to a little lake down the street and let him go live with the other turtles. The kids really didn't have that hard of a time with it like i thought they might. We may get another little turtle next summer when we go to Myrtle Beach, or we may just get some fish.

What a sweet photo spread! I had two red-ear turtles like that in high school. Aw...they were sweet. Shooter and Gilmore were their names.
Anyway, I'm glad it wasn't a traumatic experience for the kids!
