Not so good ...

  • Leaving your unwanted turtle with an animal shelter that focuses on dogs and cats. Because they don't know how to care for it.
  • Taking them back to a pet shop is not always a great solution either. Unless the store specializes in reptiles.
  • Do not release your turtle into the wild.
