    lol. My name is Shelly and I have always found it ironic that I always loved turtles my whole life. :)

    How about Sunny because of the yellow stripes in her shell?

    Actually I like that a lot. Seven hasn't really stuck yet so Sunny it is, thanks.

    After looking a little into it some, I think she is a Rio Grande slider.

    Well unfortunately "Sunny" is not doing too well. I suspect she has an RI. She's going to be seen at the University of GA veterinary school either tomorrow afternoon or Saturday morning.

    Well Sunny had a severe RI. She was given an antibiotic shot but her prognosis was not very good. She was severely underweight and lungs were full of fluids and Unfortunately, poor Sunny past away sometime last night. :(
