My mom just broght home a water turtle. She rescued it from her friend's grandaughter who inheited it with with the house when her grandmother died. We thought we had rehomed them all last year, but this guy just showed up today. He is about 10 " and black in color with a little red on his ears. He is very flat. His carpus is very smooth. I need to find a home ASAP. If we didn't take it it would have been left to die in the yard. I am in La Mesa ( San Diego county) PM me if you want him.
Please post any advice or questions.

Hi Angi:

The turtle is a red ear slider. When they get very old, especially the males, their green carapace turns black. It is called melanistic. I hope you can find a good home for him...someone with a pond where he can live outside.

We are going to take him to the SDTTS meeting tonight. Hopefully someone there will want him if not the rescue will take him.....I hope. We couldn't let him die.
