Over the last few days Lyndon has been checking out Mudah (which is like Trademe for my NZ readers) :-) for a 2nd-hand tank for Tom. We've done a bit of research and looked at lots of videos about Red-eared slider turtles to find out a bit more about them and see what they like. Tom is definitely a male :-) Males are smaller than the females, but have longer claws and a longer tail.
Today Lyndon and Aaron went off to check out this tank and bought it home. It's 4ft long and is now set up on our lounge balcony. The stand is a bit rusty, but one day I will get round to giving it a new coat of paint. It came with the picture on the back and we bought the filter over the weekend.
Introducing Tom to his new home.
He was very busy exploring ...
Tonight Lyndon went back to the pet shop and got a floating basking rock for him and a plant (which seems kind of lonely all by itself so might have to get some more).
Thanks for visiting.
