Ba-Zinga by PaganFireSnake Ba-Zinga by PaganFireSnake
That is the name I gave this cute itty bitty baby painted turtle! :D I was originally going to name him/her (way too young to tell) Sheldon (from the Big Bang Theory) but I kind of like the uniqueness and ring to Ba-Zinga better.:)

He was a gift to me from my mother. He's a pet not a wild turtle.

Oh yeah Ba-Zinga really is such a little cutie. And so funny too especially since he has since learned to beg for food! :lol: When he sees me by the tank he goes CRAZY, swimming really fast in the front and watching everything I do, and when I drop the food in the water he chows down like a little pig! :D I really love this little guy.:)

Yeah he's personality is really starting to show and he does seem to be getting more and more used to me.:D Turtles are pretty smart and they figure out things pretty quickly and I believe he will be just as tame as my Hermann's Tortoise as he grows up.:)

Ba-Zinga is such a cutie....if you like turtles, you should check out my Chloe (4yr old girl) - she's a red-eared slider.

He's very cute. I haven't had any turtles for quite a while. But I just picked up a small snapper (6") off the road today. He was sitting right on the white line and a smaller one was mashed a few inches away from him. He's sitting in a bucket in my bathtub right now. Tomorrow I'll relocate him to a spot further from the main drag he was on.

Awe glad to hear you saved that snapper.:D I've seen too many crushed turtles on the road and it's so sad. But nice to know there are some like you that will go out of their way to help one! :)

I've been doing turtle patrol for years. This time of year they start coming out and most of the people around here seem to go out of their way to run them over. I'm always screeching to a halt to run out and get them off the road. Thank God the traffic is usually thin, so it's not too hard to do. But if I can't pull over I will slow down and then stop, hold up traffic while I get them if I have to. No one has given me a hard time about it yet, but I swear I'm prepared to do battle if I have to. I hate it when people run over animals out of ignorance and meanness.

Yeah that really is disgusting when people go out of their way to hit something. If an animal jumps out in front of your vehicle and you don't have time to get out of it's way or it's too close to safely stop, without killing yourself, that's one thing. But I have seen people being cruel in purposely hitting small animals, like turtles, birds, squirrels, etc. Shame on them! Some people can be so cruel and heartless. :/

I just about have to stop myself from turning the car around and chasing them when I see that. It makes me so mad.

I have yelled out some not so nice words at heartless jerks like that! And actually depending on the animal, if someone is caught teasing or harming it on purpose they can do jail time! Especially if that animal is an endangered or threatened species. That includes different species of snakes, turtles, birds...the biggest offense going to someone that harms a Bald Eagle. It's considered a Federal Offense and I believe it's a mandatory 35 yrs in prison!

Turtles do make cute and entertaining pets to keep. Water turtles can require a bit of work, b/c they need to have a large amount of water so that can fowl up quickly. But other then that they are great to own.:)
