Rex and Cinderella

September 19, 2007 at 11:18 pm 3 comments

On September 1st, me and AG went to Philly on a day trip to eat some authentic Philly Cheesesteaks and see the sights. Walking through a market, we saw some turtles and bought a pair.

We’ve named them Rex and Cinderella, two Red Eared Sliders, who are actually more expensive and complicated than I first thought. Since the pix were taken, we’ve since purchased an aquarium, filters, basking light, food, a basking spot, aquarium heater, and such. Anyway, here are some pix:

We brought them home in a chinese food disposable tupperware. They were probably over an inch in length.

This is the plastron of Cinderella.

The Plastron of Rex.

This is the second temporary bowl we put them in. I’ll post more about that later.
