Guess I will go first! I have 4 adorable turtles - Joe Mama (res), Cecil (res), Fazsha (painted), & Moley (Diamondback). I got our first turtle about 4 years ago as a hatchling & she lived upstairs, I brought her downstairs and was going to find her a good home when I fell in love with her - the rest is history. I am 42 years old & have 3 teenage daughters, I have been married for 23 years in May. I also have 3 Dachshunds - Maggie, Liberty & Willy. I spend all my free time taking care of my turtles & on my computer! Check out my pictures (the link is in my signature!)

Fazsha\'s a lovely name :) I really hope I can have as much success w/ my lil one as you have with yours. She seems to be happy enough, she\'s in the process of chasing a little bug that\'s flying around the room atm. it\'s adorable :)

I just returned from a trip to New York City where I purchased a poor little (res) it\'s only about 1 1/2 inches! I got him in China Town where they were being sold for turtle soup! ,u.u, ::sniffle:: perhaps you guys can help me think of a fitting name for the poor fellow, he started off life hard, being kept in a tiny placis tank with only water and about 10 other baby turtles..

Hi there...Wow you must be busy with all the neat animals. My family and I are new to taking care of turtles. We are finding they are neat,and fun to watch! I am married and have two kids. a daughter and a son. 10 and 8. We have the two turtles, and a 45 gal tank with two oscars and a red pacu, and a 55 gal tank with an assortment of fish....two parrot fish, one angel fish, three fancy gold fish, 1 feeder gold fish, 12 aqua frogs, and 1 snail. We also have 1 cat named Ruben, and one calico kitten on its way. Gee after reading my pet list I am almost caught up with every one else....lol
