About Us
Anne and Fred, the Pets of the Day
Name: Anne, Fred
Age: Four, Five years old
Gender: Female, Male
Kind: Painted Turtles
Home: Holland, Michigan, USA
   I caught Anne and Fred with my own hands in the pond we live on. Anne is an Eastern Painted Turtle, and Fred is a Western Painted Turtle. They now live in a turtle tank in my bedroom. Whenever I walk in the room, they stop everything and swim to the corner of the tank opening their mouths wide and snapping over and over at me. To feed them, I pick them each up carefully by their shells, hold a piece of food out and they snatch it right out of my hand. They're happy, middle-aged turtles (named after my parents).
