The Real Turt



        The real Turt was rescued in Little Elm, Texas. His name was meant to be short and to the point. Turt is a fresh water Western Painted Turtle and, fortunately, his species is plentiful in the midwest. Turt is about 3 years old. He will grow to be about 10 inches long and live for about 50 years. He eats turtle food now but his previous diet consisted of grasses, algae and bugs.

          Turt is a sun seeker too, he enjoys basking in the sun on his rock.

2018 UPDATE! Turt has been successfully rehabilitated and returned to his real environment. He is now basking on a log in a lake in Texas.
