    We had some neighborhood kids bring us some eggs that they brought home from Pennsylvania. They didnt know what to do with them, and we knew they were turtle eggs. A few months later, and here is the first hatchling!!

    At first you really managed to fool me with that first pic. I went all "What? Turtle???" --- then I scrolled. ;)

    How cute they are! Where do you keep them? Have you got a pond?

    I do have a pond. Im not sure about how many gallons, but its quite large. We currently have 3 turtles in it. These little guys will be the new additions once theyre old enough.

    Thanks everyone for the compliments!
