I didn't make this point, one of my pet peeves where I live is that there are hundreds of people here who keep turtles in their backyards without a clue.
Most I run into don't even know that the ones they call either "regular turtles" or "snapping turtles" are actually ornate box turtles. They stick them in the backyard for various reasons but often not good reasons.
Then to see someone with a yellow mud & think it's a "desert tortoise" just blew me away!
How can you properly feed one when you don't know what it is?
eeek!
