Turtie tank!

Tortie the turtle has a new home:
Just above the middle purple plant is a little red eared slider turtle. This is a 20 gallon tank, with about 5 gallons of water, 7 plastic plants, & a filter/basking area.
The tank is covered with an appropriate metal screen top. Heat lamp is on top.  For the first few hours   Tortie was not noticeably impressed. He spent a great deal of time hiding. Now that it is quiet, he has been out & about, small enough to climb the plants, he pops his head up & glares at whomever may be within vision.

A closer look of Turtie nesting in his plants.
