Walking the Turtle

I let my turtle roam our backyard today.  Poor guy is always stuck in his tank.  So I gave him a little bit of freedom.  He seemed happy to get out.  But when I first placed him in the grass, he just sat there unmoving.  He's not used to a big wide world.  He was probably experiencing sensory overload--the sounds, the green grass, the bright sun.  But it didn't phase him for long.  Soon he started walking.  In fact, he tried to get as far away from me as possible.  That darn Wasabi...trying to get rid of me.  I don't think so.

I took a million pictures of him while waiting for him to get his fill.  Isn't he cute??
When I brought him inside, he had grass stuck in his folds.  I was picking them out for him, and he tried to bite me!  Ungrateful turtle!  Solitary confinement for you.

Ohhh, he's so cute. A few years ago we had one that looked very similar. We named him Eduardo. Great pics Miss Photographer!!!
