He does hiss at me but I haven't tried to pick him up yet... gunna get gloves first, I've been bitten by a red-eared slider so I think I wanna avoid another bite like that.
I looked up a care sheet and did get him some organic romaine lettuce for the time being as I don't get paid til the 1st.
Her ex has had him about a year and I have no idea what type of awful care this poor guy has received from that idiot. I'm gunna estimate he's just a little over a year but have no idea. Is there a way to age these guys?
I would love any tips you guys have as well as links to good sites or other communities that can help me with this guy.
I'm getting him a UV/heat lamp ASAP as he does not have one and I know he does need one.
As of right now I'm not sure if I will be keeping him or finding him a new home. I've been wanting a reptile but wasn't expecting one yet.
Any advice would be awesome.
I was given the OK to keep him so I'm going to. Any advice on hand-taming would rock.
Here's a little group of pictures along with his new name.
