||East Brunswick, New Jersey, USA|
my name is Kenny, and I have a baby Painted Turtle called Doogy. I found
him in Vermont when we were visiting, and as he was nowhere near any water,
we rescued him and brought him home to New Jersey. I don't know how old he is
exactly, but probably less than a year old.
Doogy is really adept at climbing roughly textured surfaces. He can pull
himself up vertically. He's a really cute little guy, and all my friends think
so too. He loves to eat and he loves to swim around. He's a really independent
little turtle, but when he warm up to you, he's so nice. When you pick him
up, he fidgets but after a while he just settles in your hand and enjoys the
view. He is very patient and I know because he can bite really hard for a
little turtle. He's a blast to watch anytime. He knows my voice and sometimes
stretches his head way out to listen, it's so cute!
