I spent the entire weekend moving, and somehow in the middle of all that ended up with a new pet. I'll introduce her to all of you later after I take some pictures. Until then, wanna guess what kind of beautiful and amazing animal she is?

Everyone, this is Myrtle. Myrtle, this is everyone.

She is a 20 year old red eared slider. She was in need of a new home, and I couldn't resist.

@minego Aww what a cutie! I hope you'll care well for each other 😊

@mintyfresh It is a good name for a turtle. When we first found out we'd be getting her my 8yo suggested naming her Shelly, but her name has been Myrtle for the last 20 years so we decided not to change it.
