I don't think I've properly introduced our turtle yet.
His name is Franklin. I thought it was a witty name til I realized EVERYONE names their turtles this if they have kids. Hah
Well this is our Franklin, he started out the size of a quarter and in the 4 months or so that we've had him he's doubled in size. He's got such a chunky butt now that he can't really squeeze it all into the shell if you startle him.
He's also really weird. He LOVES his light, and does this planking/ sun goddess worship/ surfin' moves in front of it:
No hands Ma!
This is his, "I know I'm cool but what are you lookin' at?" face.
He's a red eared slider and we only assume he's male. Rob found him at work by the side of the back door. He thought he was a weird pebble he was so little. Rob's work is no where near any water so we think a bird dropped him.
Of course when we get my cat Beau, he'll probably end up as a snack on the half shell. ;)
