Ralfie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Ralfie
Age: Three years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Red-eared Slider
Home: USA
   My Ralfie is the best pet ever. I have trained him extremely well. There is no other turtle like him. He is a lot bigger and a little chubby but very very healthy. I recently got a another turtle, who's just a baby and he is treating as if they are father and daughter. It is so cute! I hope that some day she will bear him children, but for now they are best friends. Ralfie is the best of the best and very smart, too.

    About three months ago, I purchased a feeder fish for him to eat and what he would do is kick my filter tube so that it would stop taking in water that way the fish would have to come up for air. The fish would be so in need of air that it would hover below the surface for minutes and slowly Ralfie would sneak underneath him he would then be able to eat him better and be able to catch him. Smart I know! But he gave up on that small fish and now that once little fish is really big and acts just like a turtle. He even eats Ralfie's food, funny.
