I've had a turtle that my daughter brought home for about a year now. He's a good sized turtle- I'd say his shell is about 8-9" long. He's been "domesticated" for a long time-- in a tank for years.
I really hate to give him away since he's become my buddy. He likes to get out and walk around and climb on stuff. But I really can't give him the care and attention he should have anymore.
Is there anyone out there who could give him a good home? (I'll deliver ) Would a pet store take him?
My friend wants to let him loose in a pond near his home that has other turtles. I don't really want to do that since I think he's been in a tank/home environment for so long, I worry if he would survive.
