Taken at the Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory.
Was it friendly? The turtles here are skiddish. You have to sneak up on them to get a photo or else they disappear into the water.
This guy was in the conservatory and having just been fed were pretty laid back 😉
When we would buy these guys from the FIve & Dime, back in the day, I think our Moms would have shrieked if they’d seen one grown. Lucky for them, the turtles never lasted that long. Kinda unlucky for the turtles, though.
Oh wow! I remember being able to get those little rascals at the dime store when I was a kid, right next to the goldfish. I had a few and they all escaped 😦
