My post today is about Snapping Turtles...yes you know the ones everyone does. The cute little turtles you see in pet stores everywhere. But what most people don't know is that they grow...yes imagine that ...those cute little turtles get quite a bit bigger and soon grow out of their tanks causing people to abandon them. Here in Victoria we have alot of snapping turtles that now live in our parks, ponds, bogs...because people forget when they buy pets as babies that they grow...now we have problems with them. They will attack baby birds that swim in those ponds....sad really they are a lovely looking Turtle but a problem none the less. Makes me wish that people stop and think if the animal they are buying really is appropriate for them. Just like Parrots ....A huge responsibility that people just don't realize...Sigh...I think I'm going into a rant..I will stop now.
