Baby Turtle

Hi there!  I thought I'd pop in for a moment to show off the little baby turtle Nick found last evening on a walk through a local park.

My husband told me it was a snapping turtle, but after looking at pictures online, I believe it to be a painted turtle.

Oh, how the boys wanted to bring him home and keep him as a pet.  Of course, they want to keep every animal they find.  Like the big toad Nick found today.  But, mean ol' mom made him put the turtle back after we spent a few minutes with it.  He was pretty happy to disappear back into the pond near where Nick found him.

I was tempted to bring him home though.  I mean, look how cute he is!  And I've always wanted a turtle.  But considering we just flushed Alex's deceased guppy the other day, I didn't think we were ready for the responsibility of a turtle.  :)  (I will admit, the guppy did live longer than I expected.  Does anyone need an almost full container of fish food?)

He is soooo cute! Love the close up. I'm sure it was hard to let him go. We...and by we, I mean the kids...have a hard time letting things go, too.

What a lucky find, and a great shot you got of him as well. I've had 5 little baby turtle pets, all the same size as this one - and they're adorable!
