Caroline* the turtle is beautiful and fun to watch, but to be honest, caring for turtles takes a lot of upkeep. We are hoping to rehome Caroline to a family who will maintain his habitat and not neglect him.
Along with what you see in photos (tank, floating basking ledge, heat lamp, rocks, stones, etc… there is also a water filter and water heater in there,) we will also give a 50-ft long tank hose, which we have used for cleaning the tank. This hose has a special valve/attachment for use with a laundry tub, that can suction out water and refill tank with same hose. We find it needs a cleaning every 3-4 weeks. We’ve had Caroline for 25 years!!! He could live another 5-10-20 years…. who knows with turtles.

A perfect home for Caroline would be alone or with other female turtles — (*Caroline is actually male; named before we knew he was male) — a home where there would be no territorial instincts/issues to deal with.
Thank you for your consideration!
