It's been a very strange afternoon at our house! The kids went outside for a minute and cae running back in the house to tell me that there was a turtle in our driveway!
We don't live in an area where turtles roam free. How this little guy got in our driveway I have no idea. But being the soft hearted animal lover that I am I picked him up and brought him into the house.
And now we can't figure out what to do with him. He's not like a lost dog that may have traveled a few miles, so if he's a lost pet he's got belong to one of our neighbors, but I don't think any of our neighbors have a turtle. We're going to check to make sure though.
So then we went to the pet store to find some information on turtles to see if maybe we want to adopt him. Apparently turtle care is kind of complicated. They need special lights and fresh veggies every day and they have to be misted twice a day. We can't decide if we're up to turtle care right now.
But on the other hand, he's super cute and we all kind of like him!
At the moment he's in a cardboard box with some shredded lettuce and cucumber while we try to figure out what to do with him. I will definitely keep you posted. :)
