||Five years old|
is Lulu, one of my four Red-Eared turtles. Lulu (as well as her two
brothers and one sister), was born in Florida, although after her
adoption she resides in Connecticut. She is five years old and measures nine
inches long. She enjoys the outdoors during summer time as you can see
in the photo. She loves adventure and loves to explore our back yard.
Lulu's favorites food is fresh fish as plants that are required for her
diet is not available in Connecticut. Of the four turtles Lulu is the
most adventurous. During winter months she basks under a special light
and swims in a water tank. During spring and summer she swims in an
artificial pond prepared especially for them in the back yard. As they do
not like cold water, we have placed a water heater that keeps
temperatures within the 80 degrees in the water tank and artificial
pond. She loves to bask under the sun along with the others in a special
platform that also keeps them dry for hours. Lulu is a funny and loving pet!
