Mudd E. Turtle, the Pet of the Day
Name: Mudd E. Turtle
Age: Two years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Red Ear Slider Turtle
Home: Houston, Texas, USA
   Why is my pet special: She isn't at all shy! She will follow your finger across the glass which I find cute. She is well trained and loves to be held. She has beautiful emerald eyes, and loves to eat earth worms! She is very friendly. I love her so much and i think that she deserves to be pet of the year!

    Mudd E. can be a little greedy sometimes and beg for more food, but I recently put her on a special diet where I only feed her twice a day which is plenty for her. She is not independent at all! She loves attention and can't stand being in the same tank as any other animal (unless it's fish which is more of a meal to her). Her favorite game is to follow your finger as you drag it across the tank ... she can sort of do a trick. I am training her to try to flip in the water by sort of dragging my finger in circles. She will flip but now I'm trying to get her to do it without me trying to get her to do it with my finger. She loves having her picture taken. The one you see is her best yet. She's adorable and has her own special bedtime which is 8:30. Amazingly she always falls asleep around that time and always wakes up somewhere around 6:40. Once again, she's very cute and deserves to be honored.
