is a fun energetic turtle
who loves the out doors. One memory I remember that last summer I brought Ted
outside in our front yard to play with him, and it wasn't too cold or too hot
for him to be out it was the perfect day for a turtle like Ted to be outside.
Well, when I set him down I told him, thinking that he would listen, to him to
stay there in a little hole I dug with my hands for him so he didn't have to
dig one for himself. I went to go tell my dad that he was outside and he said
ok. When I went back to the hole, I thought that a bird or an other animal had
caught him. First I went inside to tell my dad that Ted was missing. My dad
came out to help me, and we were looking for him. There he was in our garden
eating an earth worm. It was nasty. I guess he was just getting "fresh" food
like a wild turtle.
Ted is a fun pet and a good turtle, and next time I will know better than
to leave him unsupervised.
