"My daughter found a hatchling 3 summers ago...'Snappy' is a wonderful pet! He doesn't have an ounce of aggression in him! He loves to be snuggled and cuddled, despite the fact that he is a full-fledged snapper. He likes to sit on your shoulder when reading and watching the pages of the book turn, he enjoys TV from time to time...he is a very fast runner. He will actively come to you, but will not respond to his name. He will climb up on your back if you are laying on the floor watching TV. He will then 'pose' with his neck extended as he is saying "I am the king'...He will only eat pellets. The only time he hissed was from my daughter trying to file his overly long nails. He has NEVER snapped at us! He likes to hide in dark places...under couches, inside the spring of a rocker-recliner, and in the entertainment center if the door is left open. He is incredibly pleasant! We don't know if he is a 'he' or a 'she'...Snappy will even take a nap with us! Snappy feels completely safe with us. It is nothing for him to take a nap while holding him swaddled in his blanket. My daughter made a tee-pee for a school is small...Snappy likes to hide-out in the tee-pee if left on the floor. I know this sounds completely impossible, but this is all true! My daughter bought a small puppy-sized collar to put around his shell like a harness...she attached a leash. Girl and turtle will go for a walk. We live near a slow-moving stream. Snappy enjoys swimming in the water and digging in the mud. He gets so dirty that the only thing you see are the blinking of his eyes. He has been once incredible pet! Friends and family enjoy him, too..."
