Meet Fred...we've had him for over 13 years, a birthday gift to Ashley for her 7th birthday. He went from being a sedentary, indoor aquarium turtle to being a feisty, roaming outdoor reptile with attitude. He glares at us when he doesn't want to be disturbed and comes to the back patio door and knocks with his beak when he's hungry or wants attention. He often comes into the house to explore when we open the back door.
Fred has just come out of hibernation and is relishing the warm, wet weather. Getting his picture taken is not one of his favorite things in life...the camera captured quite the 'tude!
