A dear little book, but one whose premise I cannot totally accept, although the Author's heart is good. Being myself a great friend of turtles, I think the best counsel is NOT to "get" turtles, except in rescue-situations. They have been doing very well without us, indeed despite us, for vastly longer than we have been around. If they haven't produced Mozart or Keats, they also have managed not to produce nuclear waste, Fox TV, or the Progressive-Conservative Party of Canada. Seriously though, enjoy turtles wherever and however you can, but don't encourage the pet-shop trade in them. And for your fingers' sake, be VERY careful when moving Snappers off the road: they can twisrt their necks around completely nd give you a Hell of a "Thank you!" if you aren't super-careful when moving them off the road ( )
