We placed over 40 Red Eared Sliders into forever homes today! One Dr. took 2 & a retired guy took the rest! They went to an awesome man-made pond in Niagara Falls that he built for turtles. His pond can hold more, so we'll more then likely visit him again next spring with another load of turtles. He was so excited with all the turtles we brought him as he is fascinated by them.
33 of them came from a Turtle Rehab (a friend of our Rescue), shes retiring from Sliders & sticking to just Native Species, so we're helping her place all of her Sliders into new homes as we have more homes then Turtles right now
A Salcata (her pet)
This guy was fed nothing but high end Steak by his old owner. This caused his shell to sink in due to a terrible diet! (Common Snapping Turtle)
Isn't his shell terrible looking??
Poor boy (Common Snapping Turtle)
I forget her issue, but shes really yellow!(Common Snapping Turtle)
This guy was hit by a car & was patched back together. He's usually a timid guy & has never opened his mouth to anyone & he was timid the last time I held him(Common Snapping Turtle)
Some of his shell repair/damage.(Common Snapping Turtle)
All the wires holding his shell together. He was a lucky boy!(Common Snapping Turtle)
