This year, I’ve been spending a lot more time outdoors gardening. I have 3 container pots and counting! (My next plant purchase will be citronella, to keep the mosquitoes at bay!)
So, of course, gardening decorations call my attention of late. Here’s a bronze turtle sculpture that I thought was rather nice:
Obviously photoshopped, but the detail and idea was so cute I couldn’t pass up on sharing it on the site!
Tell me you don’t want an outfit like that for you turtle… I dare you!
Our turtles do the darndest things, right? Ever wonder why your turtle is flicking his webbed feet at another turtle or object? It’s a mating ritual! Check out this video to see a clear example of the behavior:
Pretty cool, huh? Seeing any other behaviors with your turtle that you don’t know what they are?
It’s summer, so most of us are definitely wearing breezy and comfortable dresses. (Guys, that’s directed at the gals, of course, unless you live in Hawaii and tend to wear grass skirts and other sorts of locations…)
So, when I found this particular article of clothing, you can imagine how excited I was about it!
No, today isn’t World Turtle Day! I was too busy in my own shell and missed the celebration on May 23rd. However, hree is a photo from another website that did a better job of covering the event than I did:
They also have a few other photos with their post you should check out.
What did you do for World Turtle Day?
Just saw a short, interesting video where this woman (girl?) shows how she trained her turtle to do stuff:
I wish I had seen this when my turtles were alive. I think I would have pulled them out of the tank more often!
Has anyone else trained their turtle in a similar way?
I love it when I find a good article on turtle care. This article has several great tips related to:
Check out the article ‘Pet Turtle Care – How to Take Care of a Turtle‘ for the full scoop!
As you already know, I post tons of photos. Just so happens, this photo was used in a children’s book!
The book is titled “WHY ARE TURTLES SO CRAZY AWESOME?” and is now available on Kindle.
Also, the book is available for FREE today for Earth Day, so please download.
