Cowabunga, dude! I'm Perky, a Map turtle who came here with my friend Pokey. Our owners wanted to travel, so now we are without a home. We must be adopted together. We need a large tank (75 gallons or more) and a lamp with ultraviolet light for at least 12 hours a day. Real sunshime would be very beneficial for us, too. We love to bask! Our diet consists of turtle pellets, dark, leafy greens (for vitamin A) and occasional chopped apple and/or freeze dried shrimp. Did you know that turtles recognize their owners and will swim to the front of the tank to greet them? We may not cuddle, but we need love, too! So if you are looking for a pet without fur, come in and check us out! We are turtle-riffic!
