Schmertt, the Pet of the Day
Name: Schmertt
Age: 26 years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Turtle
Home: Orlando, Florida, USA
   This is Schmertt the Turt. Schmertt was found as a tiny baby turtle on a golf course in Orlando, Florida. He was as big as a nickel. I know because I saw him sit on one. That was way back in 1984! Now Schmertt has retired to Florida and is happily living downstairs from Hashbrown; a parakeet. Recently, his fabuSchmertts owners gave him a bigger tank and some new stones. He was so happy about it that he sent them the photo you see. Schmertt frequently takes a shower under the faucet and gets his shell scrubbed with a soft toothbrush. He is single. He does have a friend in the mirror that he is fond of and two faux turtles to gaze at. He loves to sunbathe and does it every day around 10am. He dines on food sticks in the evening. He is a turtle that likes routine. A special treat for Schmertt would be some mellon or shrimp. "The last time I had shrimp," Schmertt said, "I danced around my tank with the whole thing in my mouth." Schmertt certainly is a good turtle and a nice little friend.
