My biology class is about to adopt a red-eared slider. This was a rescue turtle. Its companions died of neglect and shell rot. The pictures are too gruesome to share, but this turtle here is doing well.

The students in my class are going to do some research for this website and give it some tender love and care.

More information and photos to come!

Stay posted.
