hey all..

for the ones who heard of leo and knew the story..here comes the continuation

just now (3 hrs b4) my friend came over and took out a small plastic bag from her handbag and told me she got some snacks..i opened the bag and found a tiny turtle swimming inside..i went crazy..she said she felt sad for what happened and wanted to get a new friend..

no one will take leo\'s place ever but i have a baby turtle which is not a RES bcz no red markings on the face..i\'ll post pix of the small guy hopefully 2morrow so u could help me identify him..although i think he\'s an albino slider

anyways i need ur opinions for the guy\'s name..my friend wanted to call him leo but NEVER..i sorted the names into 2 now..it\'s either sibastian or mint..which is better? plz help i don\'t wanna keep calling him \"the new turtle\" for a long time

thanx in advance

try naming your new one by its looks or the way it acts. my RES has the name, \"Dozer\" because he is fast, and strong. Or maybe you can name it \"leonardo\" to remember your old turt by. just some of my opinions.

Name your turtle by personality. it took me a day to think my turtles name out. and all my friends take days to do it, we actually come up with out own ill give you some examples *all of them are snappers except for the boxie* Elvin is the boxie then the rest were. Dyno,Harry,Lenny,Larry,Fluffy, And Arnold those are all of our turtles combined. i would sya sibastian though

I\'m glad Green has a friend - but the right name will come to you at the right time. It\'s really strange how those things happen: my daughter insisted we name two of the turts Speedy and Franklin - but I picked which ones. Speedy turned out to be an escape artist, and Franklin an extremely mellow, always hungry, first to approach me type. The third took several days...and was finally named Aztec because of the markings on it\'s shell.

I like the name Mint. Those turtles are so cute! I can hardly remember when mine was that little. She grew up so fast!

Cool ....Isnt he wonderful Dixiee?
As for the tank you see....I dressed it up there...Its normally all rigged w/ chicken wire and basking lamps....but i figured he would want to display his home as \"humble\" ..once i get my pictures off my phone i can post his new golden markings..Thanks for checkin him out!

Hi all! I\'m back for a bit! How\'s everyone? Wow! I can\'t believe you got another turtle! Lucky!!! I want a little baby really bad! Ugh! Anywho, I do think you should name your turtle \'Mint\'. I love mint candy! Anyway, Mint Green would be very funny!

P.L.P. Your turtle looks so much like mine! Except mine are a lot, LOT bigger! :)

:D :p

Wow! Cool turtle! That looks pretty big for just a baby, but maybe it\'s just me. I really like your set-up too it\'s really neat!

the patterns on mint\'s shell are very similar to green\'s except he has a darker color..so it seems this is the most common pattern that\'s why they look like urs trailrider (wb btw:))..but leo had the most beautiful shell i ever saw

noooo.....everytime my turtles shell got pointed he grew ..but dont poeople say too much protein when its pyramiding?.Woody\'s markings were out of this world too...maybe we should stay away from the better markings :) ...i think i might be adopting 2 turtls this weekend...im not really sure what kind they are....and im really nervous...my friends brother is going to let them go if i dont take them ....one is 15 years old! and the other one was caught a few years ago :( that one looks like a painted turt.....they are in a 10 gallon tank and in just water w/ a rock....no basking light or anything ....im worried about them...

He is VERY gentle!! :) thanks for noticing :) Sleepy? nahh...Lazy? YES! ....anymore he has taken a liking to basking most of the day....He was once a nice green colorful baby too .....i just wish i had pix from when he was as little as yours.

oh thanx this is good:)
and yeah maybe we have to just be satisfied with classic markings..the 2 turtles come with their tank? if yes then this is great why not keep them if u have space..even if not cz u have a big setting and ur guy would have company..and i think guys make friends better than girls(ohh like green)..he\'s really a sweet guy i always wished to see leo that size someday..

for trailrider\'s turtles u can find them here http://www.allturtles.com/msgboard/view ... picID=4384
