I have been around a while and seen a load of really cute animals. But Nelson...he absolutely takes the cake. Sorry, Jacques. I don't even quite remember what you look like......o_O
Thanks, Tammy! He really is totally adorable!!!!
Jacques hasn't been on lately because she's not doing well. She's alive but has developed a Mystery Ailment. I will make a separate post about her on the Health thread one day soon.

I’m sorry to read that Bea... I thought that she was mysteriously improved after the last false alarm... Hugs!!!

AHEM: @Pastel Tortie - I need to have a WORD with you about YOUR turtles encouraging MY BABY to try dangerous feats of turtle daring!!!
Please note the example below:


Nelson (to himself): "PINSTRIPE says I can do it..."

Congrats, I hope you enjoy him . I have 2.1 and they are really neat to watch. I have 1.0 in his own tank because he is too aggressive to be with even the female all of the time. The other pair are pretty peaceful with each other.

Poor Jacques. She's just really had her problems. Get well soon, Jacques!

Yesterday evening I heard a small voice from Nelson's tank:

Nelson (waving from the filter intake): "Ma-am? Oh, MA-AM!!!! Over HERE, please, Ma-am..."

Me: "Why, YES, Nelson! What is it sweetie?"
Nelson : "I was just wondering, if maybe...is it...erm...is it dinner time yet?"
Me: "Actually, dinner time isn't for another half hour, but since you are SO sweet, and polite and adorable, yes- you can have your dinner early!"

Nelson: "Oh, THANK you!!! YOM NOM NOM NOM..!!!!!!"
