Free the Turtle! - The Sequel

These pics were texted from RAC. Henry is a painted turtle that was captured as a cute little turtlet in Big Shag Lake a decade or so ago. The thing about turtles is that they live a long time. Bringing home a turtlet on a lark can turn into a very long term commitment. Henry was well cared for in a large tank in several Chicagoland locales. After learning that Henry was actually Henrietta when she started laying eggs, RAC started looking for a new home.

Janice's turtle rescue pond in Lake Forest must look like heaven to Henrietta:

Home sweet home...

... and 40 friends to keep her company. - RAC

A fitting sequel to Live Free Die Hard.

I think he should make the big leap - go salty. Hire somebody to maintain it for him.
