Have You Considered Life as a Turtle

May 15, 2009 at 4:08 AM Leave a comment

OK, so I’m a day late this week too, but I have a really good excuse for this Wednesday. I wanted to wait for Russ Case’s, the Reptiles magazine editor, latest blog entry.

For those of you that are not familiar with him, Helmut is the official Reptiles magazine and ReptileChannel red-eared slider. Helmut was found by a co-worker in her backyard about two years ago and he’s been with the company ever since he was brought in.

Russ took some time to record all the happening things that Helmut does all day. I thought it was pretty neat to sit down and look at what a day in the life of a red-eared slider was like. I decided to try and figure out what my cats do all day. From my observations they sleep, eat, drink, sleep, play, sleep, eat, drink, and sleep … oh to be a cat. Or even maybe a red-eared slider! Be sure to check out Russ’ entry “Turtle Diary” on ReptileChannel.

Do you know what your pets are up to all day long?
