I have a new friend in my house.She is 'Jenny' 'the red ear slider turtle' from Japan or may be Korea.
I have a fish aquarium at home, but never had a turtle, for combination in single glass tank is hazardous to fishes.
One of my patient's glass vivarium was broken by accident and he could not manage another in time so he gifted Jenny to me. She is with me since two months. Raising baby turtle is not an easy job. Clean the pot daily, feed three times a day,put a light on pot to warm her in chill nights and above all weekly cleaning her with brush in basin is much more challenging then treating patients in clinic. But I love doing this. I searched websites for she is not eating since five days and I learn that turtles some times fasts for couple of weeks in winter. But I feel that she feels lonely being alone. So I have to find a friend for her. Wish me good luck that I can find her a handsome boy turtle before Christmas.
