Axle, the Pet of the Day
Name: Axle
Age: Two years, two months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Common Snapping Turtle

   Axle is special for 10 reasons:

  1. He's an odd & rare pet.
  2. No one believes me that I own a Common Snapping Turtle.
  3. He's not 100% mean.
  4. He walks like a prehistoric dinosaur.
  5. I saved him from a water fall (he couldn't swim in that strong current).
  6. He loves to hangout with the dogs.
  7. He lives in 160 gallon pond in my room.
  8. He's a lot larger than average, he's over 9 inches long in shell length, over 8 inches long in shell width, and weighs a little under 10 pounds.
  9. He greets me whenever I walk into my room, or, wake up from sleeping.
  10. Axle is special because he's my friend!!
