    Just love these little mischievous fellas, had them for coming upto 3 years now, when I first got them, they all had shells the size of a 20p coin, now look at them! ;o

    The tiny turtle is actually younger than the other three, and the biggest two are actually older than the yellowy turtle, confusing, I still don't know their sex!

    Aww thanks ladies, I absolutely adore them, sounds pretty sad but seriously they are everything to me! lol, they are pretty tough to look after in a way Kirsty because they are pretty messy! I spent £300 on a filter and it kinda helps ;)

    Yeah, must take a lot of dedication for you Aaron, they are so cute though, what made you decide to get turtles? I can't imagine them being so small to start with, I would have just fallen in love with them that size lol. xx

    Hahaha, I don't know Kirst honestly, it's so weird when I think back, they were just such a cute appealing pet, and once I'd looked em up on the tinternet I'd just made my mind up about em! :D

    honestly they were so small it sounds so weird now!!! Back then I could hold them on a single finger, now it takes two hands, they are getting to be such beasts!! XD

    nah they aren't in a pond, not really sure what tank they are in, it's the tank in my piccies, it's quite big, getting a larger one eventually, I'd love to slap more stones in because one turtle absolutely loves to dig, the other 3 aren't as enthusiastic about it X)

    No Aaron, I wish I had pets, always wanted a dog when I was wee but my mum wouldn't let us have one too much responsibility I think. I did have a gold fish though which I won at the shows lol I honestly had it for about 4-5 years funnily enough it was called goldy! lol My friends Sarah and Russell had a huuge fish tank full of tropical fish and tiny frogs it was well cool! xx
