I was trying to think of something witty to say and then I saw "NEKKID TURTLE" and come on, how can I top that?

How cute! That last pic is too funny - he really does look like he's watching the screen! Hope they're not looking at porn. Or, is that why he took off his shell earlier?

Carrie K said...

dputiger has a valid point - a nekkid turtle!!! But a cute one. And friendly too.

Too adorable! Are you keeping the little guy for yourself or is it a gift for a lucky someone?
