I'm still pretty new to fish forum so figured I would just post a pic of my 2 red-eared sliders Murtagh and Bowser. I am a zookeeper and people are constantly releasing turtles into our tropic building aviary because there are some nice streams running through. But obviously, due to the diseases they could bring in we cannot keep them. So these two little guys were rescued. The larger one, Murtagh I don't believe had ever even been put in water because after I took him home he would not step in the water fora full week! seemed scared of it. But he has relaxed now and is a very friendly turtle. I bring them outside as often as I can and he will sometimes crawl into my lap! They are still small, less than 4 inches across, so they are in a 30 gallon long for now. I hope to one day build a pond for them outdoors!
