Our neighbor Eric called with an offer of two red-eared slider turtles that needed a nice pond to call home. Luckily, we have one that fit the bill. They do eat fish, so I’ll need to restock the goldfish a bit more. The larger goldfish will not be bothered, nor will the bullfrogs who call the pond home. The mosquito fish will be eaten, but they breed so quickly, they will be fine.
Aren’t they cute? One zipped immediately into the pond and the other took his time. We have no idea what sex they are, so we might be in for more turtles!
