    One of my favorite all-time animals. I LOVE turtles, especially little miniature ones.

    I used to train my pet turtles. One of them, Marty, my first, literally knew
    how to dance, wedging himself under the edge of the turtle bowl and lifting his shell up and down to the music.

    Love this!! And i love turtles and tortoises too…I had a south american box turtle names Stella. She was so brilliant…I sued to let her exercise and she would dig under the fence and got to the neighbors garden…they were this very old japanese couple who created an insane zen/bonsai garden…they loved it when Stella would visit since her shell was so beautiful…she really brought a pop of color to their space :) She found a perfect home with a crazy amphibian rescue lady…she was pretty sick when i rescued her form the shelter but she blossomed beautifully…she was such a sweet, peaceful little creature…

        she got adopted by a wonderful woman who knows everything about turtles and amphibians…she had an entire outdoor space dedicated to letting them exercise, special ponds, a hibernation cottage etc…it was wild…i rescued her from a shelter I used to work with where she was being kept in an outdoor pen, was sick and nearly frozen, the poor thing! i was there to spring a cat and when i walked past her cage, i thought, uhoh! and she came home with me too :) she needed a warm climate…turns out she was very rare, probably brought into the country illegally…
