Meet the newest member of our family...
This is Mr. Schuey.
He was about to be roadkill until my husband stopped traffic and rescued him on a busy street near our house in the middle of rush hour traffic.
He'll be spending the next few months with us over the winter and splits his time between the playhouse in our backyard and the most elaborate turtle enclosure ever conceived in our basement.
And by elaborate, I mean a fenced in, hot rock, multiple tunnels, a water feature, a forest corner, a stone hill, lights on a timer to simulate day/night, etc.
Basically he's now be the most loved and spoiled turtle in all the land.
I don't know any other turtle that gets fresh fruit and veggies daily, along with a gourmet meal of chopped up worms.
We even have a viewing area, so Mac and daddy can sit there and watch Mr. Schuey.
Apparently he's incredibly entertaining.
Welcome to the family, Mr. Schuey!
