Oh, good for YOU! One thing that truly APPALLS me are people who take on a new pet for their children's sake, or just because it's "cool". A person I know took her two pre-teens on a vacation to AZ last year. They found a pair of snapping turtles and brought them home. They had fun with them during the summer heat in a small wading pool, but when WINTER CAME they just couldn't understand WHY they both died! Very sad and tragic...
PLEASE, everybody, study your pet before you bring him home, learn about his needs and habitat, and, by all means, NEVER take an animal out of his natural habitat! Chances are, he won't make it....
