New Pet

They went fishing and brought home a turtle. This is Delila, she is a red-eared slider

We kept her in a plastic bowl for 2 days and our friends gave us an aquarium that they didn't need.

She is now in her own 20 gallon tank and she loves it. Cassie just asked if they can go back to the lake and get another one so she won't be lonely.

This is our other aquarium, it has been housing the cocoons for a few weeks now.
I posted the caterpillars last month.
Who knows maybe someday we'll actually use them for fish. This one used to have fish in it, it is a 55 gallon tank.

That is awesome! Nothing like natural learning!


Parsley said... sweet. We love turtles and try to save them from the road. We have even been lucky enough to see a red eared slider lay eggs before. Awesome!

Turtles are my favorite. If I ever get brave enough to get a tatoo AND I have money at the same time I will get a tatoo with a turtle in it. ;)
