Turtle May Not Be The Best Buddy

Posted Dec 12, 2014

As a birthday present we bought my daughter a snapping turtle, and at first she loved it. It was small, cute, and adorable, and she could put it up, although squirming, and place it in her hand. Soon though the turtle grew, both in temperament and size, and her fascination with it dwindled. Eventually it was making its habitat dirty every other day, and cleaning it because tiresome. This, paired with her quick loss of excitement about having a turtle, made us decide that this was not a great pet to have any longer. These pets can grow to unlimited sizes, and will constantly need care. Before adding one into your home, please make sure you have years of love to give to it.
