Guess what guys? Yesterday i was in ashdown arkansas fishing at my grandfathers pond, on the way back to the house i saw a turtle crossing the old dirt trail, i knew he was aquatic because there was alage on his shell, HIS front claws were over 2 inches long. So i know he is a male aquatic turtle, i took him home with me ( please dont be mad, i coudlnt resist). After doing some research i found him to be a cooter! He is 10 inches long. Hes so precious. Does anyone have any information on keeping them? I plan on having him in a 50 gallon pond. Sound ok?
Starting over...please dont reveal!
