||One year old|
is my Painted Turtle, his name is Fredward! Fredward is fabulous! He
will follow you around in his tank and bite your finger! He has grown a lot
in the almost year I have had him, as you can see! He is very well, and
spunky but shy, I guess. He doesn't know my voice like a dog would, but he
knows I am the provider of food. He is such an interesting cool pet!
As I mentioned, he likes to follow me around and bite my fingers (don't
worry, it does not really hurt - he's too small for that)! He eats worms and
store bought special turtle food stick things. When he is older I may try
other things, but he is still a growing baby, so right we are concentrating
on good nutrition! I tried giving him feeder fish once, but he would just
kill them and then disregard them. Hopefully when he gets bigger he'll have
interest in them after he kills them! He is a turtle, not a tortoise, so he
has a tank with water to swim in, and places to climb out and bask to dry
himself. He also enjoys coming outside for some fun in the sun! Fredward is a
good pet, and I am glad he is mine!
