Kurt Brutting Posted April 30, 2022 Share Posted April 30, 2022 It was a good turtle catching day. We caught 6 painted turtles today. My kids and me go out to local ponds and lakes and try to catch turtles. We always catch and release, it’s a ton of fun. It’s been our thing now for years. I thought it would be cool to share some of our pictures. I do not keep turtles at home because of the level of maintenance involved, but ever since I was a kid I have loved all things turtles. As a teenager I worked at a reptile sanctuary and it was mostly turtle rescues and turtle breeding projects. They had everything from giant snapping turtles to Fly River turtles to giant soft shell turtles. They had some very rare turtle species that are now extinct in the wild that are only breeding in captivity. I am trying to get my kids involved in nature and between catching turtles and owning planted freshwater aquariums this has been a perfect way to enjoy nature daily. So in this thread I will post our turtle adventures. 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
