Bambuc, the Pet of the Day
Name: Bambuc
Age: One and a half years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Red Eared Slider
Home: Tel Aviv, Israel
   My pet is a red eared slider - kind of terrapin. Her name is Bambuc (Bamboo). She is one and a half years old. My terrapin is special because her kind is very rare in Israel and because it's an exotic animal. She may live up to 40 years and is very cute and beautiful.

    Bambuc is very affectionate and she loves to sit on my hands, she may be there, without moving, for a long time and she isn't scared at all because she has known me quite a while (approximately a year and a half). I got her when she was 4 cm long (carapace length) and now she is 14 cm long. She loves feeding time and she likes to be on her island, too. She lives with two more red-eared sliders who are smaller than her. She likes to swim in her aquarium.
