    I was scrolling through my records today doing some website text work. I came accross these bad boys I use to have. Kinixys Belliana. It kinda made me mad to see these guys. I guess it happens but anyone else make some regrettable decisions with selling or trading torts in the past?

    I'm sure I would regret it since I've never given away a pet. My tort will be with me until one of us is dead.

    I get too sentimental. I would like to have a rescue some day though, so I'll have to get over that

    Same here now. It was hard keeping some when they were available by the plethora, like these belliana were back then. Live and learn I guess. I did the same with pyxis while they were coming in.

    Regret selling my male Iberian a couple years ago...he was pretty friendly, and about a month after he went to his new home, I was offered a couple female Iberians.
