I Really Am Getting A Pet

I'm not actually going to get a cat out of a claw machine. But that's only because those machines don't exist.

But I am getting a turtle for real. I was hoping some current or former turtle owners could leave me some advice on what kind to get and how to care for him/her. I am also opening the comments for name suggestions. But Of course the beautiful Tracy will be giving the turtle his final name. Mad props to my girl Tracy!

So the polls are open now.. What should I name my turtle?

I prefer red eared sliders.

Robust and easy to care for, all you need is an aquariums half filled, a rock, and a heat lamp.

They eat feeder fish, or reptile sticks.

My turtles names have been tilly, thomas, stubby bubba, and currently Hubba Bubba

I have often considered getting a pet turtle, but I fear that Pencey might like turtle as a snack. Since turtles ARE one of my favorite animals, second only to baby penguins, I have developed a list in my mind of what I would name one. Turtles who are boys should be named Holden, Harrison, Keegan, or Kendall. Female turtles should be named Sally, Rinny, or Franny. Please don't name it something silly like "Speedy" or "Torpedo" or something.

My mom has a red slider (I think that's what it's called) and it's really has alot of personality.
How about "Shelly" get it? hehe
