Before anyone asks, this is a native species. It is probably a last year hatch, the size of a quarter. I found it in my mother's driveway(she lives on a lake) in late fall. It was dry, crusty, and barely moving. In the condition it was in it would have been prey very easy if I put it in the water. I put an aquarium together and have had it in the house since. It is a rather aggressive species so I have made sure no one bothers it so it doesn't get used to people. If you put your finger against the tank the little guy tries to take it off. He was eating turtle pellets only because I couldn't find feeder fish to give him(they don't sell feeder guppies because it's cruel but they sell comets ). I didn't get the comets because they are so big and native fish sure don't look like that (not sure if turtles can see color?). It is warm enough to put this turtle back but he has never had live food. I don't think he will have a problem because he is so aggressive and snaps at everything but dh and my eldest daughter insist that I get some feeder fish to make sure it can catch them(was originally my intention until I couldn't find the feeders). What do you think?
