I was thinking this picture was of Bold, as Bold is less shy with the camera, but my other half tells me it may actually be PINSTRIPE in the photo. This makes it all the more impressive, considering Pinstripe's head is the size of a No. 2 pencil eraser.

The other picture, the close up of Bold's eye and part of Bold's face, we agree is BOLD. Right now Bold has more "war paint" on the face than Pinstripe.

Last one for now, but this picture has great detail of Bold doing another periscope impression.

You can actually see the lines on Bold's plastron where the two hinges are on a three-striped mud turtle.
I showed my hubby this pic and said wouldn't you like a little turtle. He looked at it and then looked away. Which was not a 'no'.

Ha ha ha.

Oh I am loving this thread. I am almost tempted to get a turtle. [emoji6]
Carol, I don't know what turtles you have access to in South Africa, but there are a couple African sideneck turtles (mud turtles) that are quite personable and don't get very big... ;)

I was just thinking that I need to do some research to see what we have available AND does not grow too big.
