Of course the kids have gotten attached to him. Normally my stand on this kind of thing is that wild animals should be returned to the wild, but I have to say that this little guy has made me question my usually hard and fast stance on the matter. I truly have no idea where he came from to even be able to return him home. There are a few man made retention pond type things in my neighborhood but they're kinda gross and it's hard for me to imagine anything living in them. Plus, they are all quite a distance from my house. I have no way of knowing if that's where he came from. Besides, look how tiny he is.At the time these pictures were taken, we were keeping him in a large glass baking dish, but we've since gotten him an aquarium. (Thank you Freecycle. I checked my email Saturday and someone was giving one away. Couldn't have come at a better time.) We did our research and he has rocks to sun himself on and a fresh supply of fruits and veggies to eat. At some point I'm going to have to buy turtle food and dig around for earth worms. Apparently worms are a turtle delicacy. He's definitely going to be monitored closely and if it looks like he's not thriving, we'll probably take him to the retention pond. I'll keep you updated. Please remain at the edge of your seats.
