Red-Eared Slider Turtle

Hi there I'm Tanooki and as you see my roomies are from Ohio and I'm from Flordia...I'll explain (This is also my story): A few years ago I lived with Makai, Jake, Zoe, and Oreo in their old house. I came home in a cute little container house type thing with a cute little palm tree. I was only a baby. My daddy and his daughter used to play Super Mario Bros on their Nintendo 64 and Mama LOVED the little raccoon character Mario would turn into when you found the leaf so she named me Tanooki because that was what he was called. I loved living there because I had a beautiful tank and a wonderful family. They would let me out and play in the front yard in the grass, and on the hard wood floor and it was fun! One day I got a case of Pink Eye -DUN DUN DUNNNNN!- and my eye was really red for weeks! Mama was worried but I soon got over it! Mama's daughter loved going up to my tank and talking to me for hours! She told me everything. She always told me secrets and told me "Now Tanooki, DON'T TELL ANYONE! Ok girl?" I always promised! :) Then, Mama was going to have a baby boy, and had to send me away. She said it would be too much to have me with the kids. They sent me away to Flordia, and now I am HUGE!
