Happy World Turtle Day by PaganFireSnake Happy World Turtle Day by PaganFireSnake
Ba-Zinga, baby Painted Turtle (yes... there is such a species as a Painted Turtle...I DID NOT paint him...he is actually this color) and some daisies. :) It's World Turtle Day today so I had to get at least on nice photo with one of my turtles for it. And I opted to use this little cutie.:D

World Turtle Day is May 23rd each year and is celebrated throughout the world. It was started in 2000 by American Tortoise Rescue. Here is more info on it: [link]

The only thing I disagree with is the statement that buying a turtle/tortoise from a pet store will increase demand from the wild and the whole thing about the "cruel pet trade". That is NOT true! If you buy from "shady" pet stores, maybe, but the majority of the turtles you see as pets, in the US, are from breeders...NOT from the wild. All of the turtles I have are from reputable breeders. AND all of my turtles are WELL taken care of. It drives me a little crazy that some organizations group the majority of good owners with the few that have treated their pets badly. :/
