Hello, everyone! And how are you all doing? I had to steal my blog away from Shellbert. He is really such a blog hog! I thought that I had made this blog just for me, so I could share tips and whatnot?
Anyway, I thought I could give some pros and cons for anyone who may be thinking about buying a turtle for a pet. There are a lot of things to think about before you get one.
1) First, you have to think about how long they live. Depending on what kind of turtle you get, their life span can be anywhere from 20 to 60 years. You need to make sure that you are willing to take care of one for that long.
2)Second, are you willing to spend on all of the materials you need to keep your turtle happy? Just think, you have to buy the aquariu, the water filter, food, rocks, plants, water conditioner…..Yea, it’s a lot.
3) Third,you need to think about how big your turtle might end up. I’m already on my second tank with Shellbert and he is still growing. Usually, the bigger the tank the more it costs and they can be pretty expensive. However, you can find deals occasionally. And you also have to worry about where you are going to put the tank especially, if you keep buying larger tanks.
Hopefully if you might be thinking of getting a turtle as a pet, you can keep these suggestions in mind. I received Shellbert as a pet when I was younger and I didn’t know any of the things that I wrote here. I ‘m glad I have him now, but maybe if I would have reconsidered if I knew more at the time.
