Li'l A'Tuin and Me by dungeonmaster11 Li'l A'Tuin and Me by dungeonmaster11
A picture of me and my new pet Red-Eared Slider, A'Tuin (whose gender even the vet has yet to determine, due to his/her young age/small size). Ain't s/he cute? :aww:

The story behind A'Tuin is that, while walking to my high school's farthermost grounds and back (about two miles; great for cardio and walkin' the dog!), I spotted an odd-looking rock, which I looked at closer and saw was actually a turtle hatchling on the side of the road, dirty and dry looking. Finding it to be both helpless and utterly adorable, my mom and I both agreed to take the little bugger in as a new pet. After buying the proper habitat facility, food, and water conditioners to assure A'Tuin's comfort and health, we scheduled a check-up a week and a half later, and were pleased to learn of the lack of disease and fungal infections upon 'im. Now, we just need a little bit more time, and maybe we'll find out if it's a he or a she. Hmmm......:p

Oh, and as the title suggests, that's me holding A'Tuin there.

You need to upload a good shot of A'Tuin that we can superimpose elephants and a flat world on top of.

Thanks! And yeah, s/he really is a cute little terrapin. :aww: And I'm not sure, probably a year and three quarters by now. I don't own A'tuin anymore tho'; read this journal of mine from a few months back for info on his/her whereabouts: [link]
