Friday Finds: Bronze Turtle Outdoor Art

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:

Turtle Mating Ritual

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?

Friday Finds: Turtle Throw Dress

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!

Just saw a short, interesting video where this woman (girl?) shows how she trained her turtle to do stuff:

Has anyone else trained their turtle in a similar way?
