So my girlfriend and I decided to adopt a pair of turtles who were being given away. At first I was hesitant because of space, and I was worried about not being able to give them the proper amount of time and care, but now that they're settled in here with us I don't think I could live without them. Such beautiful and peaceful animals.
My girlfriend refuses to tell me the name she calls them in her head, and I've already forgotten the names the original owner gave them, so I've been calling them Aristurtle (the darker one) and Antoinette (the lighter one). I'm particularly fond of "Aristurtle", it's almost clever. I think Aris is a moss turtle, but I'm not entirely sure.
We have now two cats (Phoenix and Sebastian), one goldfish (Lenard), and now two turtles. What a cute little family we have now.
