Default Meet Rudie

Well today I added another member to the Thompson Zoo....
Her name was Rudy (but was also told it was a boy) so I think we'll change it to Rudie so it's more feminine but by the nail length it is actually a girl. She is a 4 year old Red Ear Slider Turtle and has some issues (pyramiding of the shell & shell rot) but she wasn't in a big enough tank, and didn't have a basking light and was only fed pellets & nothing else....so hopefully we can correct it.





Here is my 9 year old male Zeke (notice the long long nails....it's so they can 'flutter them' and attract Females (this picture was back when I got him 4 years ago...he had some malnutrition/improper care issues too but is MUCH better now).

How cool! I had red - eared sliders for 7 years from highschool through college. They got as big as dinner plates and finally they were let go in the wild because they weren't exactly going to go fly around the world with me and no one wanted them Mine must have both been girls, cuz they had the short nails.

They are awesome, never really wanted one, but I was over at Petco doing cat adoptions for work and someone brought Zeke in for them to adopt, and I said wth, why not lol. I had NO idea on their proper care or anything for a few days, but he's done awesome. He's about 7 & 1/2" so dinner plate sized. He's 9 years old now. He was about 5 when I got him. They are so fun to watch. My hubby actually made him an above tank basking area using a plastic storage container...I'll have to get him to do the same for Rudie. Here's the one he made:

I was shocked how fast mine grew, they were about the size of a silver dollar when I got them ... their names were Bo and Peep. My parents still see at least one of them in the pond and wetlands by our house(during spring/summer)...they know it's one of them because it comes right up to them, probably looking for some chicken lol!

Kudos to you for making life better for Rudie! I always say I was put here to look after children, the elderly, and animals..It makes me happy doing it, so I must be right..

So sweet of you to take him in and what you did for your other one. You are a good soul
