Re: How did you come up with your turtle\'s name?

Twister Shelly Stanton
He is a boy, but I really really liked the name shelly.

Keep feeding them different things and maybe sooner or later they might get hungry. I am just not sure that fried shrimp is the type of thing they would ever eat in their natural environment.

I think that if you don\'t want him/her anymore you should find someone who does. Ask around to people you know and see if you know anyone interested and responsible enough to take care of him/her.

Twister always pee\'s on me. I know that is what it is because when he does it he has been out of the water and dry when he does it. I don\'t think they do it on purpose, they don\'t have much control over those types of things. I just really think it is funny. Kind of like when changing a baby\'s d...
