The last of my red eared slider turtles were adopted today. Helga and the remaining two children went to a private fenced in pond in Florida. I am sad to see them go, but over the past year or so, I've not been very good about taking care of them properly, so this will be much better.
I found their new home by placing them for adoption at www.turtlehomes.org . If you'd like to see pictures of their new home, check out www.pkrattery.com/turtlepondhabitat.html.
The shipping process was quite awful.... I packed them into plastic-ware with wet paper towels. Despite all the holes I cut into the containers, I still don't know how they managed to not suffocate! In any case, they first to Ohio (DHL's sort facility), then they arrived alive around noon today. Now they have a huge pond with about 40 other turtles to keep them busy.
