About Us
George and Martha, the Pets of the Day
Name: George, Martha
Age: Four years old
Gender: Male, Female
Kind: Red-Eared Slider Turtles
Home: North Warren, Pennsylvania, USA
   George and Martha are three to four year old Red-Eared Slider Turtles. They live mostly in water in a large tank in our living room. George is very friendly and when you come into the room he swims up to the glass and wants to get out. Martha can be a little shy and if sun-bathing, will jump off the rocks into the water if startled. Bring out the shrimp to eat and they both will go nuts, they try and climb over each other to get the shrimp from your hand! Red sliders are great pets, they are very active and animated. Most people don't think turtles have that much personality.
