Say hello to my little friend

This morning I went to the pet store for some gravel and plants for my newly acquired fish tank. And lo and behold, I purchased exactly those items.

But I also spotted a turtle - a young 'un, and at a bargain price, I just had to take him (her?) home. And so I did. So now my living room is housing two fish tanks, both inhabited by a single turtle.

Oh, and in case you're wondering why they don't share a fish tank, it's quite simple really. My other turtle is much, much larger and much, much older and would have killed his companion on site. And probably have eaten him (her?). After all, I've seen him consume his own doodoo, so a picky eater he isn't.

And for the turtle fans amongst you, the species I now own are the graptemys pseudogeographica kohnii (new one) and trachemys scripta elegans. I'll try and get some nice photos of them later during the week.
