I found an old camera the other day and it had some pictures from 2004 of some young painted turtles I was raising. The smallest one had just hatched that summer. I thought it was cute so I wanted to share them with you. When They would get big enough I would release them back into the wild (ponds that my friends owned) I had them in a 10 gallon tank at this time but later moved them to a 30 gallon tank.

Very nice that they went to spend the rest of life in the wild after you raised them, so tip my hat to you sir. Others flush them Iv heared .
Unfortunately I heard the same thing :( I still have two RES turtles I raised from babies that are now 26 years old. I bought them for my kids and when they left home they left them.
