Jojo’s Sunning Himself under the Waterfall

Just a quick video post today… This was too cute.

We have a fresh-water turtle, a red-eared slider, which we’ve raised from a tiny baby. Back then, he lived in a small tank, about the size of a fishbowl. Now, he’s outgrowing his grown-up-sized tank, and we’re thinking he may need an even bigger one.

As he is cold-blooded—all turtles are—he spends a great deal of time sunning himself on his log. Unfortunately, today, his log seems to have drifted under the water filter, and the filtered water is spilling out over it. That didn’t stop him from sunning there, however ineffective that must have been.
