Employee Pet Spotlight: Turtle,
Joe Castrovillari's Pet Turtle

Little did my dad think that back in 1965 when he bought me a pet turtle (I believe it was $0.25) that 55 years later, I would still have her. But I do. She is a beautiful female Red-Eared Slider. She is super tame and eats right out of my hand. Living in a luxurious 4x8 enclosure, she has all the comforts she could ask for.
I read somewhere that with proper care a Red-Eared Slider can live up to 40 years. Well, I guess I did something right.
I brought her to grammar school when I was young, as did my two adult sons years later. Maybe someday my grandchildren can do the same.
