a few years ago, i took my friend to a path my dad and i used to walk all the time when i was a kid, that runs along the river in uxbridge. i mentioned the possibility of us seeing a turtle or two in the water, but probably not (i very rarely saw them when i used to walk there).

we saw no less than 30 turtles on our walk! swimming in the water, walking across the path, getting in the water, getting out. i've never seen anything like it. one really cute little guy walked across the path, tried to slowly get in the water, and tumbled head over heels into the river. it was sweet.

Lants - I hope you keep this thread going. If I need to be cheered up at all, I'll know where to turn! There is no way not to smile at the little turtles taking on giant berries. Too much fun!

my grandfather had a pet desert tortoise they'd found. It died recently. He found that thing like seventy years ago and it was already an adult.

It was likely pushing 100.

It loved to eat hibiscus flowers. Her name was Myrtle. Myrtle the turtle. She didn't take offense even though she was actually a tortoise.

I said this earlier but the other day walking a trail I came upon a snapper the size of half a basketball sunning itself in the middle of the trail.

Like a little boy tapping on the glass I immediately grabbed a weed and started prodding it's mouth to see what kind of reaction they give.

Their lunging abilities are far beyond what I thought they'd be, in both speed and distance. The weed I pulled wasn't long enough for comfort in hindsight.

All in the name of science I say.

Don't fuck with a snapper, trust me.

Painteds, just don't put them anywhere near your face, my friend's lip got mistaken for a tasty worm once.

i had a turtle when i was younger. for a day. i kept it outside and well, alas, it left me in the middle of the night to return to its home, the lake.

we really bonded and i'll never forgive that reptilian fuck for abandoning me like that. these pictures bring back too many memories.

this thread gets an A+...

My friend's son named one his turtles "Eye-ball-ie"
Don't know how to spell it right but it's a pretty cool name for a turtle.

i guess it really depends on the turtle but i can't imagine one would be happy in a tank or a box... do you have a yard? it's pretty easy to make a pen out of some boards, pegs, and a few nails... but you have to build it a lot higher than you'd think - they're surprisingly mobile.
