More lovely pictures of Spartacus (the ginormous Red-eared Slider), celebrity turtle extraordinaire, whom we shared a booth with at the Canadian Pet Expo ... as well as some pictures of turtles available for adoption!
I also picked up this bandana from Little RES Q for Raxl, so she can support rescue turtles, too!
Here's another review of Tamara as well. It was posted back in July:
“Tamara Turtle is adopted as a cute pet when she's a baby, but eventually grows so big she's turned loose into a dangerous world to fend for herself. By writing this book Regan W. H. Macaulay has made it possible for kids to understand and sympathize with the many turtles who are in similar situations. This book has a happy ending, and I hope it will help kids understand that it's not a good idea to have turtles as pets, and maybe inspire some of them to check out the agencies listed at the back that help turtle rehabilitation. The illustrations by Javier Duarte are excellent.”
