When my family lived in North Carolina, we would often see turtles crushed on the road by cars and trucks. Why did the turtle cross the road? Let me tell you, I’m not sure - and we didn’t wait to find out either. We would often rescue turtles from the roadside and sometimes bring them home as pets!
We had at least 4 (and probably a lot more) turtles throughout our time in North Carolina. The turtles were a lot of fun to have around (especially since we were big fans of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!) Our turtles weren’t the most active guys around, but they liked to mosey about, eating turtle pellets, worms, and other insects. It was east to set up their habitat and take care of them. Eventually; however, their health began to decline, so we decided to release them back into the wild. Our turtles were free once again!
