    Remember when I mentioned that my son has a ball python snake........lizards.....small turtles.....a very large snapping turtle....parakeets.....and tarantulas........besides the ever popular dogs and cats.
    All of these 'pets'....are at his Dad's house, my ex. It's like a fucking zoo there....because about 4 cats are there as well.
    The dogs......all 5 of them, are at my son's house....they are 2 coon hounds, 1 Alaskan malamute.....1 pit bull and 1 Yorkie.

    Anyway, here is a photo of the snapping turtle.....he is bigger than this photo shows. He is shedding right now too.
    And the snake photo is red because they have a heat light on the bastard.

    My son reaches in and grabs him by the tail, and puts him in a huge bucket they have outside, when it comes time to clean the turtle's tank.
    The tank does stay pretty clean I will say :)

    I don't need a pet snapper or a pet soft shell either. There are plenty around here wild, including raccoons. So far this year I have caught 12 raccoons and 3 opossums on my front porch. Take them 5 miles to the river and release them there so they will not come back. No wonder my corn patch got wiped out last year.

    A snapping turtle?

    That's not a pet it's a wild animal.

    Why not put it back where it belongs?

    I do not understand why people keep reptiles and bugs. I understand zoos, that is to allow people to learn about them...but I don't get the mentality that wants to keep an animal in a box.

    Can Turtles fetch? I dont understand reptile pets or even frigging cats as a pet unless you got a rat problem.
