Meet Rocky our turtle. Elijah got Rocky in September of 2007 as a back to school project. He is still small, but he has grown a lot over the years.
Rocky is very friendly and loves attention. You can see he is coming right up to see what I'm doing.
Rocky lives in our kitchen on this small filing cabinet. Every time someone walks in the kitchen he goes crazy wanting some attention. His tank could probably use some cleaning, but he hasn't complained yet.
He will eat from your hand and iff you snap your fingers he will follow you around.
We buy ReptoMin food at Wal-Mart to feed rocky. It has some little pellets and dried shrimp.
We just dump a little food in and Rocky starts munching down.
Sometimes Elijah takes Rocky outside for a walk.
If you are looking for an easy pet, a turtle might be the pet for you.
