Sheldon the Christmas turtle!

I came home tonight to a much anticipated guest...a Christmas present for my boyfriend's daughter and my first "pet" since living here. It's Sheldon, the Christmas turtle!

Sheldon is a Texas Map turtle and came from Florida this afternoon. He is roughly 2 inches in length, slightly bigger than an Oreo cookie, and he seems to be acclimating well. Truth be told, I always wanted a pet turtle as a kid so even though this isn't a gift for me, I still feel like it's fulfilling one of those long lost childhood dreams :)

Omg he is so cute. Good luck with your temporary pet. Im sure the turtle will be appreciated by the little girl. The pics are fantastic.

He is adorable! I collect turtles, so friends got me two real ones for my 15th birthday. I loved them - and so did the cat. :)

But why is this your first pet? Where are the bunnies?

Cute photos. So now you can enjoy the turtles vicariously.

I had some turtles when I was young and it was fun having them.
