Shelly is a 5-year-old red-eared slider. She is the larger of the two and much more mischievous! She came to us as a wild child with damage to her shell. With much love and a safer space to explore she has been living well. Even though she had some injuries she never let go of her mischievous ways. She is often found exploring all over the star pond enclosure, and even makes her way to Pebbles’s enclosure! Good thing she has Yurtle to keep an eye on her.
