Flip, Spot, the Pet of the Day
Name: Flip, Spot
Age: One year old
Gender: Male, Female
Kind: Yellow-bellied Slider Turtles
Home: Glendale, Arizona, USA
 
   Flip (top) and Spot (bottom) are my husband's dream pets. He had wanted turtles for some time, and this desire was increased greatly when we honey-mooned in Hawaii with all of the sea turtles. Flip and Spot were found in China Town in Los Angeles while we were there shopping for groceries. Flip and Spot are fun to watch because Flip likes to sit on top of Spot and pretty much follows her everywhere. If she goes out of the water to bask, he goes with her, and climbs on top, retracts his legs, and just balances on her shell. If she goes in the water, he follows right along after her. The only time they separate is when they are eating. They are too loveable!
