Today, I took my turtles Squirtle, Sheldon, Elka, Melvin and my still unnamed tiny eastern long-neck out for a swim in the sunshine. The Elka stealing kookaburra sat on the fence and posed for the camera in between catching worms and things to fill his tummy with, rather than turtles! My laugh for the day was when Squirts, who was sitting on my lap while I was watching TV and eating grapes, suddenly snatched a grape right out of my hand! It was squished all over his face, and I couldn't breathe I was laughing so hard! He was not happy when I took it off him, despite the fact that eastern long-necked turtles are completely carnivorous, and not at all known to be attracted to eat anything else!
