...a quick break from the trial of the cen....week to inform you that TURTLE-ISATION has occurred in the Sketty/Phoenix household.

Yes, meet Denzil, Dave and Errol; secretly purchased out of the birthday money that my Mother told me not to waste :)

All 3 are in shot - can you see 'em all?

Do you have any idea how big those things grow and how unpleasant in temperament they are?
Oct 07 2007 17:54 GMT Sketty PRO
These are special ones that only grow to a max of 4" (called Stink Pot terrapins for some reason). As for the temperament, if they can put up with me and mine then I can afford them the same respect :)

sure they're not cornish pasties?

Phew! I've known of people unwarily purchasing monster snappers and having no clue what they had. It can be a tad shocking when your tiny terrapin grows two feet long and atttacks you ;)

That'd be hysterical. I'd have another story to tell everyone! The day my turtles went bad and tried to rip off my face.....

I don't like the look of that cornish pasty they're climbing on

Looks to me like they're making a break for freedom already!

Yeah, but then the thud of shell on wood followed by a small splash was sooo funny

They're probably looking for a nice place to bask. Turtles love a nice sunny warm spot. I don't see turtle #3 though.
