Hi Gloria two female musk turtles,I don't think I'll be able to protect any of the plants either in the tub or the land area,just gonna have to tidy up after them I guess :lol:
They are an absolute joy to sit and watch,I spend more time just sat watching them than in front of the t v ,..not a bad thing.
Thank you everyone for your kind comments and encouragement...the little ones will be going in tomorrow am..just gotta paint that chevy logo in then all done...at last
I've given myself tomorrow afternoon off so will get some pics up of the turtles in there new home .

Great job Joe, your two little musk turtles were very lucky indeed to have you rescue them. Really looking forward to seeing how they continue to thrive in their new Chevy.

Thank you so much for sharing your inspiring project. :)
