I don't know if I've posted this before, but we've had our red-ear slider since 2009. Love turtles:)
They do have that ancient look about them.
I guess slow and steady sure wins something
They really have no changed that much and can live a long life. Let's hope humans don't interfere any further with their decline
They are interesting animals.
They look like it!
I've seen fossil turtles ~ Eocene not Jurassic ~ on a dig in the Bridger Basin of Wyoming. Way cool!
I knew they'd been around for millions of years.
