Anyone else love to show off pictures of their pets?
Cos I sure as hell do. They're just so cute!

Anyway, post pictures of your pets!
:D

I have two baby turtles. They are about four months old. I rescued them from Chinatown. They were dying and disease ridden when I first got them in August, but now they are healthy and thriving!

Wow they are really cute. That's a good idea for a pet for a person who can't have dogs or cats in their apartment.

it is! It's not like someone can be like "my allergies are acting up from your turtles" or "your turtles make so much noise I can't even concentrate and they keep me up at night"

I'm allergic to like everything with fur or feathers, so my pet options are fairly slim. I used to keep aquariums, and I've studied reptiles in the past so I figured It'd be a good choice.

I looked into it and it looked like it takes more effort to care for them then I thought. Aquarium with a pool area and land area, heat lamp to 85 degrees, clean water out, clean them after they eat so there is not left over food, meal worms, etc.

Yours are a beautiful color, especially with the orange markings.

@FLPierce: yeah, it's pretty intense. they can live for like forty years, too. Right now, mine are only like two inches long so I have them in a dish bin on my desk next to my laptop XD. Although they're prolly gonna out grow that within the next few months.
and thanks! when I got them they were very dull colored, but they've brightened up so much!

@onega: haha no problem!! I love pets and they're so fun to show off XD
and awwww yay!! your kitty has such pretty eyes :D

piercedboababe, your brazilian rainbow boa makes me envious, I have a colombian rainbow, and she's pretty too, but the Brazilians are friggin breathtaking.

when I am feeling less crappy I'll post all my critters, which include, 2 ball pythons, a semi-identified corn snake, a cali striped king snake, a colombian  rainbow boa, a cuban tree frog, and 5 cats.
