RIP Barron 1979- 2014

This is a nice life for a turtle. He had been ill for the last year or so.Bear in mind that turtles even in the best of conditions can live 70 years or more. I will not be getting another as it is safe to assume that I will not be around  at that time.

My condolences, Beak.

I've had many pet turtles, but never had one that long in my house. My pet turtles were box turtles, and I released them in September, when it was time for them to think about hibernation. One of them used to return every year, and I'd keep her for a while. She loved raw hamburger! She quit returning when all the houses were built in my area. I suppose she was killed by the construction.
