in his turtle bowl i'd put just a drop in the water and he'd get down off his island and swim to the ice cream and eat it. he was an arkansas turtle and he was very green and very cute. what do you think?

Alexander sounds very cute. What kind of ice cream did he like? My Tina likes lasagna.

hi voteforpedro...he liked vanilla. hehe i couldn't believe it but he'd come every time tho i didn't do it that often. the cute way he'd move his little legs and dome towards the ice cream was so cute.

hi eaforeman6 it was back when i was much younger hehe. don't recal how long i had him but i miss him sometimes. he was alexander and very little. a little bigger than a quarter. my sister gave me a necklace with a jade turtle on it in memory of alexander. and alas it was torn off my neck at work. i learned to not wear jewelry in a warehouse the hard way. so i now have i nice memory of the necklace now too. hehe.

I'll be certain not to go anywhere near that store with my long hair, unless I have it all hidden under my hat

that's pretty neat. i have a redear slider turtle and i dont know if he'll eat ice cream like your turtle. i just feed my pellets but i think thats a pretty neat trick for your turtle. how old is he? mine is about 4 years and i think ill give it a shot. i wonder if mine will eat it

hi tooincome..it was years ago that i had alexander. i do miss him. it's great that you have a redear slide turtle. probably ice cream isn't the best thing for pets hehe. but i didn't give him much or too often. if i didn't have ferrets i might try having another turtle. and maybe your turtle might like a drop of ice cream. enjoy your turtle.
